It was held at Knec’s offices at Caledonia on Dennis Pritt Road. County directors of education, county examination offi- cers, sub-county examination officers and sub-county officers were briefed on the upcoming exams. “We do not expect candidates to cheat in exams. Parents and everybody should let the candidates score their rightful grades,” Karogo said.
Head teachers have been appointed as exam centre managers. “You are directly accountable, responsible and answerable for any examination malpractices that will take place in your institution,” the appointment letter states.
