Magoha Releases Results of 549 KCSE Students After 1 Month

When Education Cabinet Secretary George Magoha published the examination results on Saturday, April 23, the Homa Bay county school's results were withheld.

After Magoha said that his Ministry had received accusations of malpractices, the Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC) had to examine the issue further, the school's results were withheld.

The school is in Kandiege, Homa Bay County's Rachuonyo North Sub County.

Candidates from Oriwa Boys High School celebrated after obtaining their results on Friday, May 13, 2022.
