The Star has carried out an investigation and found out how the 2022 KCSE examinations were rigged leading to the high number of candidates excelling when the results were released last week. According to a report that the media house has revealed teachers, students, parents and IT experts worked together with rogue examination officials to cheat in the exams.
The report revealed that in some cases parents were asked to pay between Ksh5,000 to Ksh20,000 and their children given the exam questions before entering the exam room. One teacher told the Star that teachers took the role of the support staff like security men and cleaners to allow them interact with the learners all the time. He added that the teachers were allowed to access the exam material and help the students tackle the difficult questions.
"Teachers who managed departments were called back to school and given aprons. So an examiner would think it was a watchman talking to the candidate, yet it was the teacher explaining an exam question,” he said.
Another teacher who did not want his name to be mentioned said that in his school the staffroom was converted into a toilet and the labeled. When learners asked for permission to go relieve themselves they went there where their teachers were waiting to help them with the difficult questions.
This revelation has left the education CS Ezekiel Mochogu at crossroads. Kenyans have come out to winder how he allowed such a thing to happen under his watch.
