Kenya Na­tional Union of Teach­ers chair­man Mudzo Nzili has said the on­go­ing ef­forts by the Ed­u­ca­tion min­istry to curb cheat­ing in na­tional ex­ams are ap­pro­pri­ate mea­sures of en­sur­ing ed­u­ca­tion stan­dards re­main undi­luted.

He said Kenya’s high-rank­ing ed­u­ca­tion sys­tem was on the verge of col­lapse due to pre­vi­ous exam leak­age, which threat­ened its stan­dards and cal­i­bre. Nzili said Knut recog­nises the good work done in the on­go­ing exam su­per­vi­sion and be­lieves the ex­er­cise is pro­gress­ing well, as those in­volved are do­ing their best.

“We ap­plaud the Cabi­net Sec­re­tary and those charged with this im­por­tant ex­er­cise for do­ing an ex­em­plary job and en­sur­ing our na­tional ex­ams re­main un­tainted,” he said at St Teresa Catholic Church in Ki­amwangi, Gatundu South on Fri­day.

Nzili at­tended the funeral ser­vice of Jemima Gikui Kioni, the wife of Kenya’s first post-Independence Knut sec­re­tary gen­eral Stephen Joseph Kioni. For­mer Knut sec­re­tary gen­eral Fran­cis Ng’ang’a also at­tended.
