Matiang’i threatens to sack school heads over exam cheating

27 March 2016, 19:26 Joseph Njung’eh

Nairobi - Education Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i has said head teachers whose schools are involved in exam cheating will be sacked.

Speaking at during an Education Day at Kigumo Bendera Secondary School, Murang’a County, Matiang’i said the school boards will also be held responsible.

He said the new examination board appointed recently will ensure there is no more cheating as it was witnessed last year.

The CS said the new board members will however be vetted by security agencies to ensure they are fit for the job.

“I apologised to Kenyans over the irregularities when I announced last year’s results. But I do not intend to wait for another 12 months and apologise again,” he said.

He said he will present a Subsidiary Legislation bill to Parliament with new guidelines on examination management, noting that ‘cheating is the lowest form of intellectual dishonesty’.

The CS was accompanied by the chairperson of Education Committee in parliament, Sabina Chege who is also Murang’a County Women Representative.

Kigumo MP Jamleck Kamau, Alice Wahome (Kandara) and Kamande Mwangi (Maragua) were also present.
