KNEC Issue Statement After Nyambaria Boys Chased KNEC Officials. The Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC) has issued a warning statement in response to reports of disruptive incidents during the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) examinations. Concerns have been raised about Nyambaria High School, which is known for its excellent performance in the KCSE 2022, where candidates allegedly expelled examination officials and fake papers circulated on social media.
General Director of KNEC Dr. David Njengere clarified that the circulating papers are fraudulent and aimed at misleading candidates, stressing that the actual written examinations are not shared on social media platforms. The situation at Nyambaria High School has escalated with allegations of harassment and intimidation, leading to the suspension of the school’s principal, Charles Onyari, last week.
Despite the controversy, Dr. Njengere expressed confidence in the ongoing investigation process and appreciated the cooperation of center managers and security personnel. He acknowledged their efforts to maintain the integrity of the exam, especially in areas affected by heavy rains.
Juxtaposed with the school’s exceptional performance, the Nyambaria incident highlights the challenges of ensuring exam credibility and a fair testing environment. It serves as a reminder of the complexity involved in meeting testing standards.
As the KCSE examinations move into their second week, KNEC remains vigilant in addressing potential malpractices to maintain the integrity of the examinations and ensure a level playing field for all candidates.
