Education Cabinet Secretary (CS) George Magoha has expressed confidence in the 2021 KCSE candidates saying they are well prepared for the ongoing national examinations.

Speaking from Mombasa, he noted that this is due to the earlier completion of the form 4 syllabus and revisions done in the past 3 months.

The CS then warned the teachers overseeing the examinations against any malpractices, citing repercussions for those who contravene his directives.

“For the 0.001 % managers who are actually teachers, do not dare because we shall know where you have opened the papers,” stated Magoha

While signaling his soon exit from the Education Ministry, Magoha then called on Kenyans and the next education administration to continue upholding the integrity of the Kenyan examinations.

“I would want to charge Kenyans and the incoming administration not to slide back in delivering credible exams.”

This is as 831,015 candidates are sitting the exams in 10,437 examination centres.

Regarding the completion of the Competency-Based Curriculum (CBC) classrooms, Magoha noted that the exercise in most counties is over 80 percent, assuring that all the classrooms will be completed before the new school calendar on 25th of April 2022.

“We are now at 83 percent. I think if we allow another two weeks during this process we should be able to have delivered the 6447 classrooms. Now we have completed about 4000 of them and handed over 2500 classrooms,” said the CS.
