Education CS Summoned Over KCPE Results Errors

The Ministry of Education is being questioned by the National Assembly Committee on Education, which is chaired by Tinderet MP Julius Melly, about inconsistencies in the newly announced 2023 KCPE results.

Melly declared that Ezekiel Machogu, Cabinet Secretary for Education, and David Njengere, CEO of the Kenya National Examination Council, will address the committee to get clarity on inaccuracies and irregularities.

Melly stated that the committee expects the ministry to provide insights into anomalies such as schools where most learners received identical marks in one subject and the inconsistent grading of students with the same score. The committee is prepared with questions and aims to address concerns raised by the public.

Melly emphasized the committee’s commitment to improving the examination system in the country, citing previous instances where the ministry was summoned to explain allegations of cheating after the 2022 KCSE results.

Machogu declared the Form One placement process would begin on Monday, following the announcement of the 2023 KCPE exam results. However, claiming mistakes that could harm applicants, a petitioner named Magare Gikenyi has launched a complaint challenging the use of the findings for placement. In the petition, Gikenyi lists a number of education associations as interested parties and requests a temporary injunction to stop using the results.

The petitioner emphasized the necessity to defend students’ rights by claiming that systemic flaws were impacting all candidates. Gikenyi asked the court to halt the placement procedure until the application is heard and decided.
