KNEC puts 30 schools under strict surveillance over planned exam cheating

Kenya National examinations Council (Knec) Chairman Prof. George Magoha on Monday disclosed that 30 schools are  conspiring to cheat in National exam. KNEC boss further hinted that the schools are in Garissa, four in Kisii and five in Meru.

“We are closely monitoring those schools and we want to ask them stop such plans immediately,” said Prof Magoha.

Prof. Magoha who has visited schools in Migori, Homa Bay, Nyamira and Kisii  assured parents, teachers and students that adequate security measures have been put in place to oversee the exams.

Magoha further cautioned parents not to be duped by rogue principals who will be out to siphon money in return of what he termed as fake examination papers while reiterating that there will be no exam leakage.

On the other hand education PS Dr. Belyon Kipsang who is set to visit Nyeri and Isiolo today has warned school heads not to indulge in exam malpractice since the penalty is unbearable.

“We are determined to deliver credible examinations the way we have done in the last two years,” said Dr Kipsang.
