No Exam Leakage or Exposures, Education CS Warns

Education CS Ezekiel Machogu has requested that members of the public report any phone-received examination leakage efforts and warned against resending such texts.

Machogu advised the public to be careful of fraudsters who prey on unwary members of the people by pretending to have examination papers during national examinations.

He urged Kenyans to report such perpetrators to the appropriate authorities for swift action.

The CS stated that they are collaborating with the Communications Authority of Kenya and the ICT department to apprehend anyone attempting to distribute messages or screenshots purporting to be authentic test papers.

“We are working closely with ICT and the Communications Authority. If you get anything on the phone purporting to be the examination papers, do not pass it on, but rather report it to the security personnel.

“If you share them with others, then you will be considered an accomplice,” the CS warned.

Machogu also said that the government had engaged the services of Cyber Crime experts, who, he reaffirmed, will monitor social media criminals who have been deceiving the people by claiming to offer authentic test papers.

During a meeting with stakeholders regarding upcoming national examinations, the Cabinet Secretary urged center managers to protect the sanctity of the Kenya Primary School Education Assessment (KPSEA), Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE), and Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) examinations by working with integrity.

“I want to assure that this year’s examination has not and will not be leaked. I urge the center managers to ensure there is no exposure of any question paper. Firm action will be taken against you if you do otherwise, and the students’ results will be annulled,” he warned.

The CS added that the government has made every effort to preserve the credibility of examinations and that there have been no compromises.

He assured everyone that his ministry had everything in order and that there were no leaks or exposures.

Machogu claimed that the examination’s integrity was never jeopardized.

He assured everyone that his ministry had everything in order and that there were no leaks or exposures.

Machogu noted that the center administrators would determine the success or failure of the examinations, and he was optimistic that they would do their utmost to ensure the success of the entire exercise.

“The success or failure of the upcoming KCSE, KPSEA and KCPE will be determined by your actions. Failure is not an option.

“I have confidence that you will make Kenya proud by ensuring all the rules and regulations are followed to the latter,” he stated.

The CEO of the Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC), Dr. David Njeng’ere Kabita, stated that it was the instructors’ obligation to inform their students that the exam papers for this year had not been altered and that they should not fall victim to scammers.

“These papers have not been touched by anyone. Please do not interfere with them and if you fall for fraudsters and give these fake papers to your students then you are setting them up for failure. There are rules and regulations and contravening them is punishable,” he warned.
