Campaigners banned from playing loud music during KCSE, KCPE exams
The management of Kisumu city has banned loud music during the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) and Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) examinations period.
At the same time, city authorities have also banned advertising on business premises, walls and street light poles, roadside pavements, and/or verandah ahead of the forthcoming Africities summit slated for May.
New temporary measures are meant to ensure order in the city and its environs to allow smooth conduct of the vital and forthcoming domestic and global events.
Kisumu city manager Abala Wanga disclosed that they have written to relevant authorities and concerned parties to ensure they cooperate and comply ahead of the national examinations and global summit.
“We have banned loud music by those campaigning because students are preparing for both KCPE and KCSE. Most schools surround the city and loud music will interfere with learners’ revision,” Wanga said.
Street advertising of new products by caravans for blue chip companies is also banned to avoid semantic noise that would disrupt the peaceful exam environment.
