1. Magoha orders TSC to discipline Teacher over KCPE test missed by Candidate, says they shall grade the child

A class eight pupil who sat the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education examination at Kaunguni primary school in Waita Mwingi central but missed an English composition test having been sent by Deputy Head-teacher to bring Sh 400 for lunch program fees, will be graded anyway.

According to CS George Magoha, that child did not commit any offense hence will be graded without the English composition.

“We as the Ministry of Education shall ensure we do justice for that child that shall be graded without composition because it was not the child’s fault.” said Magoha in Kisumu on Thursday 8th of April.

Professor Magoha has since called on Teachers Service Commission to discipline the teacher who made the boy miss the test in composition.

What do you think of CS Magoha’s move to grade the learner without the missed test? Will it be fair to the student and other candidates?

2. Teacher in Custody for Leaking exams in Nyanza Region, Ministry Maintains No Exam Leaked

A teacher by the name Calvin Magolo who teaches at Nyagwethe secondary school in Homabay County was arrested in Mbita town on Wednesday. The teacher is suspected to be behind the leakage of KCSE 2020 Examinations in four counties.

“The suspect was discovered to be receiving leaked examination papers an hour before the start of each paper before he distributes the papers to his contacts in Kisii, Nyamira and as far as Isebania in Migori county,” noted Mr Moses Lilan, the County Commissioner for Homa Bay.

According to Lilan, the teacher works in a powerful network of examination criminals and consequently should reveal those he collude with to leak exams from Nairobi.

Even amid these claims of examination leakage, the Ministry of Education (MOE) through PS Julius Jwan insists the integrity of the ongoing Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education examinations remains unquestionable.

“Normally the exam is thoroughly sealed. The security features that we put in the seal are so tight that there is no way somebody can access it before it leaves the containers,” said Jwan in a video shared by NTV Kenya online.

According to Jwan, two people only opened containers in presence of everyone, including the media; Deputy County Commissioner (DCC) and the Subcounty Director of Education.

3. Kiambu county: KCSE candidate attacks security officers and runs out of examination room

This has sparked several reactions from Netizens, some of who feel it’s because of abuse of drugs.
