At the Westlands DCC centre, the exercise was managed by Basic Education Principal Secretary Belio Kipsang, and at the Mombasa County Mvita centre, Teachers Service Commission (CEO) Nancy Macharia was in charge of distributing the exams. Margaret Lesuuda, the regional director of education for Nairobi, accompanied Kipsang as he urged the exam centre managers to soften their rigorous behaviour toward the students and let them be kids.

Kipsang and Lesuuda observed as the container was opened and the centre supervisors went to each student’s classroom one by one to collect papers as the bell rang.
