KCSE Officials Arrested over Exam Leakage

Education CS Professor George Magoha has said that center managers from the North Eastern and Nyanza regions have been arrested for exposing exams before the time it was expected to be opened. This comes at a time when rumors about KCSE leakage are spreading like wildfire.

However, the Cabinet Secretary has given the nation an unqualified assurance that the exams are secure and cannot be fiddled without detection. He made the concession while supervising the ongoing KCSE examinations at The Kenya High School. His schedule has been busy lately as he visits schools on official duties related to KCSE.

CS Magoha continued his routine tours today to monitor the progress of KCSE across the country. He first visited the Kenya High School in the morning before addressing the media in the afternoon to give an update on the progress of KCSE. Prof Magoha was accompanied by PS for Early Learning and Basic Education Dr. Julius Jwan. They both represented the government’s interests by protecting the safety and security of the country’s KCSE examinations.

On April 6th, there was a scare when it emerged that KCSE Paper 1 Maths test was leaked by the principal of ABC Kiseveni Secondary School in Machakos County. The Principal, Betta Mutuku, shared a KCSE mathematics paper on her WhatsApp for her students to use when revising for the examination. However, Machakos DCIO and other officers arrested the principal for violating KNEC regulations. CS Magoha has since dismissed the paper, saying that the paper on Mutuku’s WhatsApp status was different from the real KCSE paper.

On April 14, Agriculture Paper 1 was leaked and the culprit is being hunted. Magoha also said that over the past one week 11 examination officials have been arrested over attempts to leak exams.

Do these events show that there is more than meets the eye in this saga, or we can sit pretty in full trust of the CS? Be the judge!
