The Ministry of Education has put in place stringent intelligence-gathering mechanisms to curb cheating during this year’s national examinations.
Minister Fred Matiang’i has sternly warned students against malpractices in KCSE and KCPE, saying the tests will be carried with “military precision”.
During a briefing of county commissioners at Kenya School of Government on Monday, he said the exams will take place in line with the timetable.
“We have been given all resources to facilitate this examination. We have no excuse for failure. We shall stick to the timetable. Let us make sacrifices where necessary,” he said, adding managers found guilty of misconduct will be dealt with.
He reminded the team that they must do what is right and deliver credible exams.
Matiang’i said circulars for picking and returning examination papers will soon be issued by TSC to all county and sub-county directors.
The CS further said all logistical plans have been put in place to ensure materials are transported to the examinations centres across the country.
He said the ministry has 419 containers where the papers will be kept safely.
