(KDRTV)-Education PS Belio Kipsang has said that the form one admission has been extended to January 24 to allow for 100 per cent transition

The exercise was initially scheduled to end on Friday, January 17.

“In order to ensure no learner is left behind, the Ministry has made a decision to extend the reporting deadline by seven days,” the PS said in a letter that was sent to all education officials in the country.

Belio also ordered that all learners be traced and their data to be captured in the National Education Management Information System (NEMIS)
