Senators Criticize Machogu Over Alleged Targeting of Kisii Region in Exam Crackdown

On Saturday, a group of Azimio Senators criticized Education Cabinet Secretary Ezekiel Machogu, alleging that the government unfairly targeted the Kisii region in its crackdown on teachers, principals, and test center managers involved in exam cheating.

At a meeting at the New Dawn SDA Church in West Mugirango Constituency, the senators questioned the accuracy of the recent busts, saying it was unlikely that the police would find most of the cheating cases in one area.

The legislators, led by Nyamira Senator Okong’o Omogeni, argued that cheating claims in the Kisii region were baseless and had a bad impact on students.

“Machogu is from here, and he understands us because he was raised in this area.” “How long will we be referred to as exam cheats?” Omogeni posed for the camera.

“He is the Education CS, and we expect him to protect the Gusii Community.” Nothing has gone wrong.”

Stewart Madzayo, Senator from Kilifi and Senate minority leader, stated that the charges were casting a negative picture on the region.

Migori Senator Eddy Oketch, who joined the conversation, declared that President William Ruto’s government was shattering the hopes and dreams of young Kisii students.
