Govt Commends Education Stakeholders For Overseeing KCPE Exams

Govt Commends Education Stakeholders For Overseeing KCPE Exams.
Dr Sarah Ruto, the Chief Administrative Secretary (CAS) for Education, has praised all teams that played a critical role in delivering a successful examination in Baringo despite threats of insecurity.
Speaking at the Kabarnet exam container on the final day of the 2021 Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE), Dr Ruto noted that all 18,342 candidates from across the seven sub-counties were able to write the papers despite deteriorating security in some parts of Baringo South, North, and along the Kerio Valley region.
She stated that it was the implementation of appropriate measures prior to and during the examination period that ensured candidates, particularly in the 27 schools affected by insecurity, completed the exams without major challenges.
“Just before we began the exercise, about two schools in a hotspot area could have been challenged but thankfully they were able to sit for their national examination without any problems,” she said.
The CAS, who was accompanied by Baringo Central Deputy County Commissioner Rueben Ratemo and County Director of Education Mwasaro Mwashegwa, stated that she expects the same in the upcoming Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) examinations, which are set to take place next week.
Dr. Ruto stated that a successful exercise will give every candidate a fair chance to advance to the next level of their lives because the country is in an era where a complete transition is required.
No Cheating Cases Reported In Coast Region
According to Regional Commissioner John Elungata, the Kenya Certificate Primary Examinations (KCPE) concluded on Wednesday with no cases of examination malpractices in the Coast Region.
At least 101, 857 candidates sat for the three-day exam, which was held under strict guidelines designed to prevent cheating.
Elungata stated that the examinations were going well in the region as of Monday, when they began, with no instances of malpractice reported.

He went on to say that only two cases of pregnancies had been reported, one in Kilifi where a girl had a baby and the other in Kipevu, and that there was no cause for concern because the cases were handled effectively.
“I want to thank every member of the team; we have done well this time. We have no major incidents reported except one or two. Otherwise the entire exercise has been wonderful,” said Elungata.
He praised the process and attributed it to good supervision, and he urged the team in charge of supervising the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education next week to do the same.
Elungata urged teachers and parents to support the government’s crackdown on disco matangas, claiming that they have come a long way in reducing the number of teenage pregnancies.
Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC) registered 1,225,507 candidates in 28,316 KCPE examination centers in 2021, up from 1,191,752 candidates in 28,457 centers in 2020.
According to Mombasa Deputy Commissioner Ronald Mwiwawi, no candidate was barred from taking the exam.
Victoria Muoka, Regional Director of the Teacher Service Commission, stated that they are looking forward to celebrating good results.
