The Kenya Kwanza government is already causing heated debate among Kenyans and according to some experts alleging that President William Ruto may fail to finish his tenure due to his revengeful nature of doing things. Exams are coming and more than 100 schools have been put on notice.
According to Maalim, an intelligence report received showed that some schools are scheming on how to cheat during the examinations during this period. However, he said they have and will put measures to curb exam cheating and will apprehend those responsible and punish them. “We are watching all schools but the schools on our radar will have more attention. We will also ensure the Kenya National Examination Council’s regulations are followed,” he said.
Although Maalim noted that security has improved, he said that three schools in Baringo South in Baringo County, will be forced to merge during the examinations. Pupils sitting for KCPE and KCSE at Arabal and Kapindasum Primary Schools will have to do their examinations at Chemorongion Primary School after bandits vandalised the two schools, destroyed classes and set furniture and books on fire in an act of sabotage to skip exams. “We will ensure that pupils are protected during examinations. Each school will have two security officers to watch over them and ensure there security,” said Maalim, adding that the schools will be rebuilt during the holiday. He noted.
