Two high school students who are writing their Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) exams have been nabbed with mobile phones.
Education CS Proffesor George Magoha who is overseeing the exercise countrywide in Mombasa said the cases were reported in Nairobi.
The CS has at the same time warned teachers and supervisors of serious consequences should they be found involving themselves in examination irregularities.
“We have not had any serious incidents. We dismantled the cartels in primary schools exams. We have noticed that they have formed another one. This morning we have two cases of students with cell phones. We shall allow them to take the exams. I want to warn any teacher who feels brave enough and opens the exam papers beforehand. We shall come for you.”
In regards to the completion of the Competency-Based Curriculum (CBC) classrooms, Professor Magoha noted that five counties have completed the construction with 2500 classrooms handed over so far.
“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. Now we have completed about 4000 of them and handed over 2500 classrooms,”Magoha said.
