“We have received part of the funding for marking the examination we are grateful to President of the Republic, the Vice President for Service Cluster and minister of finance for trying their level best to see to it that the examination papers are marked. It is true that lack of marking the examination as well as releasing the results is a challenge and it has interfered with our academic year” he stressed.
