NAIROBI, Kenya, Oct 15 – Cabinet Secretaries Amina Mohamed, Fred Matiangi and Joe Mucheru will on Monday lead a meeting of a multi-agency team charged with safeguarding the integrity of national examinations following fears of leakages.
The meeting at the Kenya School of Government to be attended by officials from the Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC), Teachers Service Commission (TSC) and other stakeholders is aimed at sealing any loopholes after widespread fears that the examinations may have been compromised.
The Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) examination practicals begin on October 22 and end on November 1.
Matiangi will also address security chiefs on safety of schools after an attack in Mandera left two teachers dead.
Already, police have identified a Somali national, Hassan Hodey as the main suspect behind the attack.
Inspector General of Police Joseph Boinnet stated that security agencies are on high alert for any possible attack by the militants, whom he says are targeting security installations along the border towns.
He urged Kenyans living along the border to remain vigilant and report any suspicious movement by individuals or groups to police.
Matiangi already said his ministry will support KNEC to administer the exam within the area.
