Ed­u­ca­tion PS Belio Kipsang has said the Ethics and Anti-Cor­rup­tion Com­mis­sion will deal with any­one who vi­o­lates reg­u­la­tions dur­ing the KCSE exam.

He said teach­ers found guilty of en­gag­ing in mal­prac­tices will be sacked. “Any cul­prit will face the full force of law. The min­istry is work­ing round the clock to en­sure in­tegrity is re­stored in schools,” Kipsang said. He spoke in Sa­ba­tia sub­county, Vi­higa county, as the exam started yes­ter­day.

The PS said “as a coun­try, we must en­sure our chil­dren get what they de­serve and what they fought for”.

Kipsang said in the just-con­cluded Kenya Cer­tifi­cate of Pri­mary Ed­u­ca­tion exam, 11 teach­ers across the coun­try were in­ter­dicted for en­gag­ing in mal­prac­tices.

He said the min­istry will en­sure proper mon­i­tor­ing of the ex­ams. Kipsang said he con­firmed the exam ma­te­rial in Sa­ba­tia and the en­tire coun­try are safe and se­cure.

The PS wit­nessed the frisk­ing of can­di­dates as the exam started at Chavakali Boys High School. He re­mained in the school as the can­di­dates sat maths paper one.

Prin­ci­pal Kahi Indimuli, Kenya Sec­ondary Schools Heads As­so­ci­a­tion act­ing chair­man, said they ex­pect in­vig­i­la­tors to do their job well.
