A KCPE candidate amputated a classmate’s finger.
On Thursday, police in Rongo, Migori County, began searching for a Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) candidate who allegedly assaulted a classmate by slashing their hand after a fight over a biscuit. A fight between the two kids at Kasodo Primary School intensified, and one of them used a knife to hurt the other before fleeing the scene. This deadly occurrence was precipitated by an argument that started over who got to keep one biscuit.
Some say a finger was amputated, while others say the entire hand was hurt, and conflicting reports have arisen as to the extent of the injury. Shortly after finishing their KCPE exams, the students got into a fight that stunned their teachers and classmates.
Concerns about the need for intervention and direction for young students have been raised in light of a recent uptick in violent crimes involving children. The injured student was quickly brought to the emergency room.

The culprit had already fled the area before police arrived, necessitating a manhunt. The authorities have opened a probe into the incident and are currently on the lookout for the perpetrator.
About 2.6 million students took part in the recently finished KCPE and Kenya Primary School Education Assessment (KPSEA) tests across 33,000 testing locations. Exams have been marked, and Secretary of Education Ezekiel Machogu has said that the results will be disclosed before the holidays.
Dr. Belio Kipsang, principal secretary of the Basic Education Ministry, added that this year’s three-day exam session went smoothly, with a low number of reported teen pregnancies.
