Politicians told to stop bashing Education CS

24 May 2016, 15:47 Jane Zack

Nairobi - Politicians have been called upon to stop bashing the Education Cabinet Secretary, Fred Matiang'i on the measures taken to curb exam cheating.

They have been told to give the CS opportunity and space to work and those who do not understand issues to stop commenting out of pure ignorance.

Jacob Ndagwa, a former teacher and the convener of the Kengele Forum on Tuesday told journalists that the main players to exam cheating in Kenya are corrupt KNEC officials, school principals, head teachers, parents, students and some teachers who believe that students cannot pass in exams unless they cheat.

Speaking in Busia town, Ndagwa said that few parents who want their children to shine buy exams for them or pay money which the principals in turn use to bribe exam officials.

“The CS has already appointed school principals to manage exam issues in their schools. In the former era, supervisors were in charge and heads would evade taking full responsibility for any cheating. Now they will have to be answerable for any shortcomings,” he said.

He added that the move by Matiang’i to isolate issues by addressing any role played by parents and other outsiders will narrow down to teachers, Board of Management and KNEC officials.

“In my view, the hullabaloo about Matiangi’s move are misplaced. It will be important for those who do not understand issues to keep their ignorance under wraps instead of commenting out of pure ignorance,” he stated.

There has been a waging war of words over the measures taken on exam cheating, many people are out rightly opposed to the measures.
