Nairobi - Cheating is still a major concern in the KCPE examinations, the Kenya National Examinations Council KNEC has admitted.

Whilst releasing the 2015 results in Nairobi Wednesday, all major education stakeholders admitted that they were still concerned with cheating of which 2.709 cases were found.

" Cheating is still a major concern to all of us," Prof Kabiru Kinyanjui, chairman of the KNEC Board stated at Mtihani House during the ceremony.

" Examination credibility is a nightmare," he added.

KNEC CEO Joseph Kivilu on the other hand, insisted that the 2015 exams were clean and credible but also agreed that cheating was a major concern.

" The integrity of the examinations is intact but as you saw, we have a challenge as 157 people were charged for cheating," he stated.

Education CS Fred Matiang'i also decried cheating in national exams.

" Exam cheating is the lowest form of intellectual dishonesty. We must bring the matter of examination cheating to an end.Examination cheating is intolerable, we will do whatever it takes to bring it to an end," he stated.

947,600 candidates sat for the 2015 examinations, the highest ever number.

" This year we recorded the highest number of KCPE candidates attributed to the high enrollment of candidates. Government remains committed to ensure no candidate is barred from taking national examinations due to lack of fees," he added.
