Four teachers of Kamagambo Secondary school in Migori were in court today to answer to CHARGES of leaking exams to students.
Magoha accuses police of abetting exam cheating
The CS said there were conspiracy schemes being hatched to transport the papers using matatus, boda bodas and tuktuks with an intention of winning some ground to tamper with the papers.
“We cannot be too sure of what is happening to our exam papers as those insecure means of transport snake past all manner of corners and bushes. It must not apply at whatever cost,” he said in Kenol, Murang’a where he supervised the opening of exam containers.
The CS for Education in Kenya, Magoha has cited incidents — one in Western and three in Nyanza — where teachers are suspected to be colluding with officers to tamper with the integrity of the exams. “…a male head teacher at a school somewhere in Western region is reported to be engaged in attempts to corrupt the examination exercise…” Prof Magoha said.
ENGLISH PAPER for KCPE has already been questioned with evidence provided.
A national exam should be set by a group of competent exaniners,who come together, source for questions from all materials such as:
✅ COURSE BOOKS,
✅ SUPPLEMENTARY BOOKS
But the copy and paste of KCPE Ex this year from the ” DISTINCTION REVISION BOOK” and bring it as a national exam is a shame.
Worries abound of those kids from rural village schools who don’t access to the Distinction publishers. Private school pupils are said to have revised the book everyday making English paper is null and void!!
This shows high level of incompetence and we are demanding the Cs education George Magoha offers an explanation.
