Data for some form ones on the National Education Management Information System, Nemis, has been erased by mistake. This is after a technical hitch was experienced at the portal that stores all primary school and secondary school learners’ information, in Kenya. The erasure does not only affect the 2020 form ones but also new comers in some schools.
“We had registered over 200 students on the system. But, the system shows that we now have zero form ones. Uploading data into this system was a herculean task. We had to trans night so as to beat set deadlines,” says a teacher whose school’s Nemis data had been deleted.

DATA TO BE RESTORED.
The ministry officials had promised to sort out the mess by Monday.
The government uses the crucial data on Nemis to disburse fees capitation for learners in all public schools. The data is also used for the medical insurance scheme for learners that is provided by the National Hospital Insurance Fund, NHIF. Further, details on Nemis are used to identify participants during co-curricular activities championships.
It is a mandatory requirement that all learners be captured on Nemis. But, in some cases the process of enlisting the learners has been hampered by lack of birth certificates for some of them. Those seeking transfers away from their current schools must get approval through a process that encompasses use of the system.
