Education Cabinet Secretary (CS) George Magoha has yet again assured that the ongoing 2021 Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) examination has not leaked.

Speaking earlier today in Kisumu county, he noted that there have only been attempts of cheating.

He expressed confidence that no photo of an examination paper making rounds on social media was taken before or during the examinations.

A leakage in an exam means that you have the paper way ahead of the process. And when I give you my own assurance as the head of the education sector in this country, that the examination has not leaked, take it to the bank,” said Magoha.

He then noted that no phones are allowed at schools during the examinations, except for two that should be handled by center and security managers.

“For all other invigilators and security people, they will leave their phones at home. This is the enemy of the examination process for our children,” he noted.

Regarding the 2021 Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) examination, Magoha said, the results might be released later this week or early next week.

“In terms of the marking process, we are doing extremely well. We are about to complete marking Composition and Insha,” noted the CS.
