The govern­ment will en­sure strict mea­sures are ap­plied dur­ing the KCSE exam which start to­day to pre­vent cheat­ing, Ed­u­ca­tion PS Be­lio Kip­sang has said. Tight se­cu­rity will also be pro­vided for safety of stu­dents and exam ma­te­ri­als. The new mea­sures are aimed at restor­ing the cred­i­bil­ity of na­tional ex­ams, which had been eroded due to cheat­ing in the past years. “We are pleased with how the KCPE exam was done and now we will keenly fo­cus on the KCSE exam to en­sure no one tam­pers with the ex­ams. We are com­mit­ted to fully restor­ing the cred­i­bil­ity of our na­tional ex­ams,” Kip­sang said. The govern­ment has taken ad­e­quate se­cu­rity mea­sures for the ex­ams in all ar­eas, in­clud­ing the Ke­rio Val­ley where there have been in­creased ban­ditry at­tacks in the last month. The Na­tional Par­ents’ As­so­ci­a­tion yes­ter­day said it is sat­is­fied with the way the KCPE ex­ams were car­ried out, free of cheat­ing and in­ter­fer­ence.
