Education  CS George Magoha has warned head teachers and principals not to leave a Kenyan child unregistered in the national examinations.

The CS said that it is a criminal offence if school heads not to register students of Grade Six, Class Eight and Form four asking every child be registered.

Speaking at Kakamega Primary ad Kakamega High school where he was monitoring reporting of Form Ones, he asked  them   to  join  selected schools regardless of scholarships  that come late and be issued with uniforms among  other learning material.

Magoha said the ministry of education will not extent the May 14 deadline for registration  of national exams as this academic year is too short,  adding no student should be sent home for fees.

The ministry of education will receive a total of 18,000 scholarships later on this year,  a move the CS said all Form Ones should not affect admission and learning should proceed as usual.

Apart from  the two schools he visited, schools heads from other schools all over the country  were urged to  let the student be admitted  to form one provided there is  school uniform purchased in school.

On parents with less money for  fees payment,  the CS asked them to give  the government what they have and ensure every form one is admitted in school.

Magoha said he wants to know  the number  of those  registered asking students to be submissive to parents and teachers  in order to come up with exemplary performance.

At the same time, Magoha thanked school management for nurturing   students with  discipline since last term  no unlawful acts were reported.

He revealed that KNEC has embarked on preparations for the national examinations for the academic year.
