Magoha Dismisses Claims Of KCSE Leakage

Magoha Dismisses Claims Of KCSE Leakage.
Prof. George Magoha, Cabinet Secretary for Education, has dismissed claims of Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) leakage, citing watertight security standards put in place.
Prof. Magoha, speaking in Kisumu on Monday, said the integrity and sanctity of the examination papers were upheld to the standards established six years ago when the current Interior CS, Dr. Fred Matiang’i, was in charge of the education sector.
“The government was able to contain the sanctity of the examinations that we have had in the last six years by using the multi-agency system,” said the Education CS.
“The government using the multi-agency system was able to contain the sanctity of the examinations that we have had in the last six years,” stated the Education CS.
“This morning, I allowed members of the media to open the secured boxes which have seven layers of security. The eighth layer is top secret since it is within the examination paper itself and it is where if you breach the integrity of the exam we can be able to see,” said Prof. Magoha.
The CS did admit, however, that there were early exam exposures carried out with the assistance of rogue center managers and security personnel.
He promised that lawbreakers would face harsh legal consequences if they were allowed to destroy the candidates’ futures.

“Now that we have released exam papers to close to 10,000 principals, one of them will connive with the security persons and photograph that paper and put on the internet. That is not leakage,” stated Prof. Magoha.
“A leakage in a paper means having the paper way ahead like it used to happen years before. My own assurance as the one in charge of the education sector in this country is that the examinations have not leaked.
“Those who have chosen to play hanky-panky business and we catch them, do not support them. Every child in this country must have equal opportunities to take examinations under the same conditions,” reiterated the CS.

His sentiments were echoed by State Department of Early Learning and Basic Education Principal Secretary  Dr Julius Jwan who maintained that the ongoing Kenya Certificate of Secondary School (KCSE) examination has not leaked.
“I want to assure the country and all stakeholders in the education sector that there is no examination paper that has leaked, what is emerging and which is not clear and I am here to inform you is dishonest centre managers who open the second paper scheduled on a particular day and share it with university students for answers retrieval,” explained Dr Jwan.
