In Summary
  • He revealed that they are closely and secretly monitoring some cases since last week.
  • Prof Magoha made an impromptu visit to Sawagongo High School in Siaya County.
  • He insisted that the exam supervisor in the school be replaced with another person after he left test papers unattended.

Kenya National Examinations Council (Knec) Chairman George Magoha has warned rogue teachers and cartels leaking examinations, saying they risk being punished severely.

Prof Magoha said that there are some exam centre managers and teachers who have been opening test papers before the scheduled time to leak the examinations.

He revealed that they are closely and secretly monitoring some cases since last week with the latest being a private school in Gilgil.

“We have the capacity to know where the paper was meant to be. If you try sending an early exposure to Mandera we will know where it was opened,” said Prof Magoha.

TECHNOLOGY

He added: “We are watching many cases in the back room. With modern technology we know what is happening. The cases we have found so far are however insignificant in terms of impact,” said Prof Magoha.

He was speaking Monday morning at Sawagongo High School in Siaya County where a staff member, Mr Jerry Ndikolo, was arrested and charged in court with leakage of a Chemistry paper.

Mr Ndikolo had allegedly sent some chemistry questions to Mr David Wafula, the Principal of St Theresa’s Bikeke Secondary School in Trans Nzoia, who later forwarded them to another principal in Elgeyo Marakwet.

They were arraigned in court last Thursday.
