, NAIROBI, Kenya, Oct 31 — About 900,000 primary school students sitting for this year’s KCPE exams are on Monday morning set to engage in rehearsals, ahead of Tuesday’s examinations.

The 3 days national examinations are set to kick off on Tuesday in the morning amid tight security measures to curb cheating.

Kenya National Examinations Council has assured that there are no leakages for this year’s Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education and the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education examinations.

KNEC chairman George Magoha has since warned that stern action will be taken against anyone found selling or buying fake examination papers.

“The Council wishes to categorically inform the public that this year’s KCPE examination papers have not been leaked whatsoever. We urge Kenyans to stop falling prey to the clear con game being mounted by unscrupulous businessmen who want to take to take opportunity of the tough measures we have put in place to curb corruption to fleece innocent Kenyans,” he said on Sunday.

He observed that the fake papers purportedly being sold to the public do not have any similarities to the original set papers.

“Papers being sold to unsuspecting Kenyans do not have the slightest likeness to what we have set and printed. We wish to warn that those who will buy the fake papers can only distract their children from the right preparations they have made for the examinations and that they will blame themselves once they confirm that they were conned come Tuesday,” he said on Sunday.
