However, Professor Magoha has cautioned those parents colluding with the ministry officials in trying to meddle with the exercise. He said students will be assigned different schools fairly and any unscrupulous actions won't be accepted. He insisted that all students are equal and stand equal chances of joining various schools.

The selection exercise will depend on a number of factors which include; the candidate's choice, where they come from and equality.
