NTV Issues Clarification After Headline Confusion on a Teacher
The National Television Community Popularly known as NTV Kenya was forced to clarify On Tuesday, April 13th a confusing headline about a teacher by the name of Magdalene Kimani who walks 322 km to deliver KCSE papers.
According to the netizens, they found the approximated distance unreasonable and impractical considering that KCSE papers are delivered within a short time before the starting time.
Others on Twitter stated that that was unreasonable if so can happen then it’s like the teacher walks from Nairobi to Eldoret on a daily basis.
NTV Kenya quickly corrected the mistake. They said that the 322 kilometers distance is the estimated distance that she will walk by the end of the KCSE exams since she has been walking 20 kilometers per day to deliver the exam papers to her students. She makes a 20-kilometer round trip on foot to and from the school.
"CLARIFICATION: It is estimated that Magdalene Kimani will have walked a distance of more than 320KM by the time KCSE exams are over. Every weekday, she makes a 20-kilometer round-trip on foot to and from school to deliver exams to her candidates." Wrote NTV Kenya on social media.
