Prof Magoha Releases Busted KCSE Malpractices Report



Education Cabinet Secretary Prof George Magoha has released a report stating that a total of 21 cases of examination malpractices were reported in this year’s KCSE exams.

Prof Magoha, while speaking at Kenya High School, said that 90 mobile phones were also nabbed from busted examiners.

“The phones were to aid in cheating,” Prof Magoha said. 

The education CS was accompanied by Principal Secretary Belio Kipsang, Kenya National examinations Council (Knec) acting Chief Executive Officer Mercy Karogo and Teachers Service Commission (TSC) CEO Nancy Macharia.

Nairobi, Kisii, Migori, Homa Bay, Wajir, and Garissa recorded highest cases of the counties that recorded cases of examination irregularities. This is despite the Ministry having flagged over 300 schools and made sure were put under watch over allegations of planned cheating.

Prof Magoha also noted that he will hand over the names of two police officers, bribed with Sh2,000 to aid cheating, to the Interior Ministry for action.

KNEC records indicate that 699,745 candidates sat for this years’ Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education exams that started on October 21st. The CS said that marking will begin on Thursday (tomorrow).
