Professor Magoha Declares Exam Leakage A Thing Of The Past

KCSE Results 2017 how to check results

The Kenya National Examinations Council Boss Professor Magoha has declared exams cheating a thing of the past in Kenya national examinations.
He was speaking during the release of Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education exams results by Fred Matiang’i on Wednesday at Nairobi School.
The former vice chancellor of University of Nairobi reiterated that it was shameful for some teachers to aid students in cheating saying we all owe ourselves and God the truth. Consequently, 40 teachers are facing deregistration over irregularities.
Professor Magoha asked his workmates at KNEC to ensure that the country does not slide back into exam leakage after he moves on from the commission.
At the same event, he opened up about not wanting the KNEC job saying he thought it was not meant for him. He went around Africa to benchmark on their examinations systems. He has since found the job of serving children the most fulfilling yet.
Kenya has been marred with exam leakage over the years but the vice shot up acutely during the reign of Professor Jacob Kaimenyi at the education ministry. So bad was the cheating that nearly the entire country had access to all papers before they were sat for.
After a public outcry, it forced the president to shake up the education sector with Professor Kaimenyi being moved to the land ministry. Many high ranking officials at the Mtihani House were also fired. The new team that took over has made radical changes whose impacts are being witnessed today.
