Education CS sounds stern warning to rogue security officers over exam cheats

Education Cabinet Secretary Amb.Amina Mohammed has sounded a stern warning to security officers who might collude with students to commit irregularities in the ongoing KCSE examinations.

Addressing media on Monday when she witnessed the closing of Biology Paper 1 exam at Nakuru High, the CS stated that all security personnel must adhere to the set guidelines on ensuring no irregularities in their centers.

“Security officers must at all times be allowed to view the positioning of examination papers from the opening of the containers to the time they arrive at the centres and they should avoid involving in any irregularities” said Amb.Amina.

While commending Kenyans for embracing the adopt exam centre initiative to avert cheating, Amb.Amina stated that most Kenyans have been making reports to the Ministry concerning any irregularities.

She called on Kenyans to continue being vigilant and report any case of irregularities in various examination centres.

“You will remember very well that at the beginning of the exercise asked Kenyans to adopt a centre. Some took it seriously and I must commend them for that. I call on the same to ensure they continue to report any irregularities in centres” said Amb.Amina.

The CS reiterating that students who had been de-registered after they were involved in exam irregularities will no longer sit any other exams in the country.
