Announcing the results at Mtihani House, Education Cabinet Secretary George Magoha this is the last examination being released under the Jubilee administration, a regime that has seen a six-year run of the cleanest and flawless national examination campaign.
Education CS George Magoha said there were no examination irregularities in the 2021 KCPE.
“The exam has been watertight. We only had a few cases of teachers taking photos of the exam once they left the containers. This is why we banned phones from exam centres,” he said.
