An examination invigilator has been arrested in migori county over alleged exam irregularities.
Announcing the arrest, education Cabinet Secretary George Magoha said that the ministry has also unearthed a syndicate clue in which examination materials are being exposed and questioned shared by university students.
He added that all examination materials are safe and no candidate will have an advantage over other candidates undertaking the national examination. He also put on the spot 6 schools, 3 in Nyamira and the other 3 in Mandera counties.
Education CS George Magoha has barred the National Youth Service from monitoring the ongoing Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education examinations .
Speaking while officiating the opening of an exam container at the Machakos sub county director of education office, Magoha was surprised to find the service men and women waiting to receive exams.
He emphasized the need for at least two police officers to ensure there is zero exam leakage.
He used the example of the Northern part of Kenya where some exam papers in some centres were tampered with.
Magoha said no NYS service man or woman should be involved in monitoring the exams, insisting that the available police officers are sufficient.
