oon NThe deadline for students to register for the 2017 session of the General Certificate of Education, GCE ends this Tuesday February 28, 2017 with no projection of a possible extension.
The Registrar of GCE Board Dr Humphrey Ekema Monono had maintained a fortnight back that contrary to rumors that there will be no GCE this year, the session will hold and that there are already compiling the documents.
The deadline for registration was initially scheduled for 30 December 2016 but has been extended twice due to crisis rocking the two English speaking regions which has paralyzed activities in schools and courts.
According to the registrar of the GCE Board several messages threatening his life floods in everyday from anonymous persons asking him not to organize the exams this year, meanwhile according to him, he is just executing orders from hierarchy especially Secondary Education Ministry.
The holding of GCE this year according to some observers is still far fetch giving the fact that schools are yet to resume, students have been out of activity for months and the fear of the unknown. Security measures taken according to them cannot cover all areas especially in suburbs where sabotage has become order of the day.
Despite the suspension of strike action on February 3, 2017 by four trade Union leaders, schools are yet to open in what many termed resistance by parents to send their children to school.
