CS Magoha Clears Air On 2022 Examinations Irregularities As Rehearsal Starts Today.
Education CS professor George Magoha has once again reassured Kenyans that the national examinations have not leaked and will not leak out as rehearsal starts today.
“The KCPE and KCSE examinations Can’t Leak, Won’t Leak”, Magoha Clears On Irregularities.
CS George Magoha has called on education and security officials across the country to exercise vigilance during the administration of national exams to avert leakages and any form of examination malpractices.
“I want to confirm to you this morning that the examination has not leaked and that the first exam shall be seen after it has left the container. There are few of those crooks who are still trying to buy the exams and I want to confirm to you that we shall not be buying our exams,” he said.
Magoha warned center managers against plotting on how to steal the exams saying they will be dealt with ruthlessly when caught.
Magoha warned the Ministry of Education will know when examination papers are compromised.
“We shall not be humane when we are dealing with you. What do you think you are doing when you are dealing with two million children and you want to open the exams so that you can compromise their future…We are everywhere and we shall know when you have opened and taken photocopies,” he added.
The Education CS further stated that the duty of opening the examination containers should not be delegated.
“In the event that you are unwell or if there is a very extraneous issue let it be escalated to the very highest level so that we don’t have a situation where we are dealing with a postmortem when the exam has already leaked and the person who was there is not supposed to be there,” he said.
The CS called on the officials to vet seriously the officials accessing the examination centers to verify their identity.
According to the Ministry of Education examination timetable, the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education examination will commence on 7th March 2022 to 10th March 2022 with candidates for the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KSCE) examination expected to write their exams between 11th March 2022 and 1st April 2022.
