Under Cabinet Secretary George Magoha, the Ministry of Education has exposed schools registering ghost Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) and Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) candidates.
The schools were accused of registering candidates that do not exist after the Ministry ordered institutions with less than 30 candidates to merge and form examination centres.
Mercy Karogo, the Kenya National Examination Centre CEO, directed affected institutions to register students in neighbouring schools.
“You have registered fake students in your portal. If you are 15, you deliberately added another 15 who are not going to do exams because you wanted to maintain your examination centre," she added.
Obiero directed Sub County Directors of Education to immediately launch interrogations on the matter and file a report with the Ministry within the shortest time possible.
“We are defrauding the government and causing unnecessary wastage in our economy."
“This is already an examination irregularity. If we find you culpable, we will write to KNEC to take action,” Obiero warned.
