Education CS Ezekiel Machogu, has stated that the processing of the results is ongoing and will be due next week. He was speaking at Kisii County, Nyaribari Masaba on December 12th. KCPE candidates sat for their final examinations last month.
“Next week we are announcing KCPE examination results and you will not hear any cases of cheating under the leadership of Machogu. The grading of Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) is progressing well and I can assure you, the results will not be riddled with any irregularities,” Machogu said.
He also said that the ministry has taken the necessary precautions to restrain issues pertaining with cheating.
“No one should peddle misinformation that in such and such place, there are problems. And there will be no problems at all. We will serve our people efficiently and effectively,” said Mr. Machogu.
CS Machogu also announced that he will bring counterparts for water and energy. He said he was working closely with the elected leaders from Kisii and Nyamira to come to grips with the issues related to development in both counties.
“I am calling upon all elected leaders from Gusii region to unite and speak in one voice, irrespective of the parties they were elected on in order to foster development,” he said.
A total of 1,287,597 candidates were registered for KPSEA while 1,244,188 candidates registered for KCPE exams. Grade 6 learners had five papers while the Standard 8 pupils sat for six papers.
