National Assembly Education Committee to address 2023 KCPE result concerns

MP Toroitich speaking at Simbeywet area of his constituency. Toroitich has assured the Education Committee, which he is a member, is keen to ensure the concerns surrounding the 2023 results are addressed.

The National Assembly Education Committee is committed to addressing concerns surrounding the 2023 examination results, as revealed by Committee Member Timothy Kipchumba.

In his Marakwet West constituency, Kipchumba highlighted significant discrepancies in the results, particularly emphasizing the case of Kabarak Primary School, where he asserted that the published results did not accurately represent the school’s performance.

Following raised questions, an audit at Kabarak Primary School was conducted, revealing that the results failed to depict the true situation.

Kipchumba questioned the plausibility of candidates from the same school achieving identical scores and raised concerns about some students being credited for exams they did not undertake.

He urged the Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC) to take accountability for the discrepancies, emphasizing the importance of ensuring that every child receives their rightful results.

Expressing disappointment in KNEC’s handling of the situation, Kipchumba emphasized the need for the council to address the concerns promptly.

Despite Education Cabinet Ezekiel Machogu defending the results, attributing discrepancies to technical hitches in transmission, the Committee remains steadfast in its pursuit of rectifying the identified issues.

The controversy surrounding the 2023 results has cast a shadow on KNEC’s longstanding reputation for credible examinations.
