Busia leads in KCPE cheating

02 January 2016, 16:37 Jane Zack

Busia - Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC) has named six schools in Busia which were involved in 2015 KCPE exams cheating.

According to KNEC, Busia top-scored with 261 cases out of 2 709 candidates nationally, while Meru came second with 218 cases.

There are a total of 35 schools which had some of its candidates involved in cheating.

The schools in Busia affected by the KNEC punitive measures include Okame in Teso South, Akolong, Kosenyi and St. James ACK Academy Malaba in Teso North and Sikarila and Bukati in Butula.

Bunyangu also in Butula had their results withheld pending confirmation of certain issues.

Kenya National Union of Teachers Teso branch has declined to comment on the unfolding revelation which has shocked stakeholders in the county.

The Union Executive Secretary Deogratias Owaya said they are waiting for some crucial information from KNEC on the reasons behind the cancellation of results before he issues a comprehensive statement on the latest developments.

Busia County Chief Officer for Education and Vocational Training Joel Barua said there is need to unravel the mystery behind the cheating which is unfortunate considering professionals who hail from the county.

"Cheating of such magnitude has never happened in the county. We had a clean sheet in 2013 and very few cases in 2014.

"This is a wake-up call to education," he said.

Out of 47 counties, 12 did not record any irregularity. Stakeholders in Busia have questioned why Mombasa which had 18 teachers  arrested over exam irregularities were given a clean bill of health.

This year public schools dropped in performance. The teachers strike which lasted about a month could have led to the mediocre show, an education official said.
