What Machogu Has Said So Far On Possible Leakage Of This Year's Exams

The era where students and teachers used unethical ways in their pursuit of success in the national examination is today considered a story of the past in the country.

Former Cabinet Secretary for Interior brought sanity in that sector when he restored integrity of examination in 2016 before passing baton to Amina Mohamed who later gave it to professor George Magoha.

And after taking the crown off Magoha's head barely two weeks ago, Education CS Ezekiel Machogu will stand a real test as the government is set to administer three national examinations at ago to 3,416,048 candidates later this month.

Of these, 1,287,597 will sit the Kenya Primary School Education Assessment (KPSEA) at Grade 6, while 1,244,188 will be sitting the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE), and 884,263 will be sitting the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE).

And while speaking in Mtihani House South C, Nairobi during the launch of the exam season, Machogu has raised questions on the possible re-emergence of forgotten exam cheating. Machogu says that some exam cheating cartels have been identified so far and action taken against them.

"Some members of examination cheating cartels have been identified so far and we are thankful to the security agencies for the swift action that they have taken," he said.
