Bungoma County Director of Education Pius Ng’oma has warned those planning to play games on exams of dire consequences.
Addressing the press while opening the examination container earlier, Ng’oma noted that the Ministry of Education (MoE) is working with the Interior ministry officers who have been deployed to all schools to ensure that no cheating is reported.
“I have my officers on the ground manning the examination in all Bungoma schools,” Ng’oma said, adding: “We are going to have 24 hours surveillance in all schools to ensure that nobody takes part in exams cheating. If anybody is found taking part in an exam irregularity, they will face the law.”
He affirmed that all centre managers arrived in time to pick examinations for different schools in the county.
He revealed that 54,859 learners for the Kenya Primary School Education Assessment (KPSEA) and 75,047 for Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) are ready for their exams starting today.
Thomas Sankei, Bungoma County Commissioner, also warned that poor roads in the areas around Mt Elgon may hamper timely delivery of exams.
“Roads in Mt Elgon are impassable. Therefore, those concerned must pick exams early,” Sankei said.
