State commits to delivering credible exam results

Cooperatives and MSME’s Cabinet Secretary (CS) Simon Chelugui has reaffirmed the government’s commitment in ensuring credible results for the ongoing Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education(KCSE).

Addressing the media after witnessing the opening of the examination container at the Ainabkoi sub-county commissioners’ office in Kapsoiyo, Uasin Gishu county, the CS urged all stakeholders including centre managers, education officials, and students to guard against any form of cheating.

Chelugui’s statement comes during the second day of the KCSE exam, where candidates were to sit for mathematics paper one in the morning and English later in the afternoon.

The CS, who was accompanied by Uasin Gishu county commissioner Dr. Edyson Nyale and the county director of education (CDE) Gitonga Thiringi said the decision by the government to involve other senior government officials, apart from those from the ministry of education in monitoring the examinations was a positive indication of its commitment in ensuring a fair and credible examination process.

“This is important for both students and parents, as it ensures that students are assessed fairly and that their results are accurate as those who worked hard and prepared well will receive commensurate results.

The CS who later visited Moi Girls High School, Eldoret to witness the distribution of the examination materials to the candidates,’ said Kenya is respected worldwide because of how it administers its national examinations.

Integrity and credibility of our national examinations will give the right results, our country is among the best recognized all over the world because of how we administer our exams, hence the need for us to continue to preserve this credibility. Over the years, we have improved and developed a curriculum that has produced a human resource that is respected all over the world,” said Chelugui.

He added that those out to undermine this credibility will not be entertained, and action would be taken against anyone who attempts to perpetuate stealing of examination.

“The government will not condone anyone intending to undermine the credibility of our national examinations through stealing,” he added.

The CS commended the Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC) for its efforts in administering credible examinations and advised all those involved in administering the same to strictly adhere to the laid down regulations.
