The CS of education professor George Magoha addressed the nation over the completion of Kenya Certificate of Secondary Examination today.
He updated the nation of how the examinations were done and the legal action taken against the students who engaged in examination malpractices. He said those who tried to cheat in exams were very bold but the ministry was way ahead of them.
He also said that "No one has a power to assign national school to a particular student through bribery, for those who sat for their Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE). Those thinking of that should stop wasting their time."
He said that children from both rich and poor backgrounds have equal opportunities to join national schools considering they all passed.
The beginning of marking KCSE papers will be launched today. The marking of the papers will be done in 34 centers. Teachers taking part in marking are expected to finish before 10th of May. This is because of reopening schools for third term.
He said, "By the grace of God Schools will open on 10th May." This statement gave hope to people who have been wondering whether students will go back to school on time or not.
