She added: “We must always have a desk mate to help us even read a book and this is very sad because it means they first help us to read after that they can now read for themselves.” Almost simultaneously Amina, Basic Education PS Belio Kipsang and Senate Education Committee chairperson Chris Langat, turned their heads, almost simultaneously, towards the direction of the pupil. “Even during examinations in a class of six, we may only have one person to assist us and we always fail to complete examinations in time and this really annoys me,” June said.
