31 December 2013, 16:00 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Education cabinet secretary Jacob Kaimenyi claims that the war on exam cheating is slowly being won despite an increase in the cases of exam irregularities.

Kaimenyi was speaking while releasing the 2013 results to the country Tuesday where he stressed that there was still need to ensure that the vice is totally dealt with.

He said that cases of exam irregularities and reports of cheating had increased and called on all parents and students to ensure they are on the right side of the law.

"Cases of exam cheating are still there and we have to look for a way of dealing with it, he said.

" We have raised the issue as a matter of priority and have put stringent measures in place to ensure it reduces in the coming years.

" There remain challenges that have to be faced and we will do our best to ensure we have a fair examination system, he said.

Kaimenyi described the incidences reported this year as increased and said that there will be harsh penalties for those caught or found to be engaging in cheating.

" There are tough penalties for those caught and I can say that the law has ensured that those caught will pay the ultimate price.

" We need all stakeholders to be on our side and to be ready to deal with this complex issue, he added.

There was an increase in the number of candidates who sat for the exams and the number is expected to rise in 2014.
