The report on the allegations of cheating and other malpractices in last year’s Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) will be out in one month.
Speaking to the press after getting views on the same from Uasin Gishu stakeholders, Jerusha Momanyi one of the members said their mission is to find out whether there was cheating in the just concluded exams, or not
“As a committee we expect the report to be out in one or so months’ time. We hope that by the time we finish, we will answer Kenyans’ questions about whether there were exam malpractices in the 2022 KCSE exams,” said the Nyamira woman Representative.
The committee started investigations after there was a public outcry that there was mass cheating in the 2022 KCSE examinations.
“We have only gathered some information which we will internalize and after we have analyzed we shall give a comprehensive report to the public, our chair of education will be the one who will release the authentic information as to whether the exams were stolen or not,” Momanyi added.
She said in areas they have visited, there are those who believe there was exam malpractice while others said there was no cheating.
“What I can say is that there is a problem in the exam management system that needs to be looked into let us look at it.
Phylis Bartoo MP Moiben said it is their duty as the education committee to look into the issue that affects the education sector.
“The reason we are doing that is when the education of a country has questions, it brings about a problem. We do not want a scenario where our graduates are rejected internationally, because the results of the exam were not authentic,” said prof Bartoo
“We are happy to have received the education committee and we have given them our views on the causes and what should be done to prevent exam cheating in our schools,” said the Uasin Gishu KUPPET executive secretary, Elijah Maiyo
Dr. Janet Kosgey CEC Education said those involved should be exposed to bring sanity to the education system
”We want to expose those involved so that we bring back the sanity and integrity so that students get the results they deserve,” said Kosgey.
