Wandayi Warns Possibility of Errors in KCSE Results

Opiyo Wandayi, the minority leader in the national assembly, claimed on Saturday that there was a chance the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) exam results, which are expected to be announced in the upcoming weeks, might not be correct.In a news conference, Wandayi warned that mistakes could taint the results of the KCSE exam, much as they did the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE), which was tarnished by stories of pupils receiving false results.

Wandayi stated, “We should expect the worst when it comes to KCSE unless this issue is addressed. I’m not being alarmist because I am a very responsible Kenyan, but I can tell you.””I fear that we should be ready for a similar or even worse thing if we do not handle the issues surrounding the bungling of the last KCPE.”

Aimed at the Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC), headed by Professor Julius Nyabundi, and Education Cabinet Secretary Ezekiel Machogu, Wandayi demanded that KNEC act quickly to resolve the problems that caused the KCPE exam results to be mishandled.The Ugunja MP went on to warn that if the mistakes aren’t fixed, it might cause greater issues for both the test’s administration and its participants.

The Member of Parliament expressed concerns in his address regarding the purported presence of cartels in the Ministry of Education and KNEC, casting further doubt on the selection process that led to the selection of the company hired to produce the test papers.

“These cartels must be stopped because if they are not stopped, the future of our education will be thrown in jeopardy,” Wandayi stated.Wandayi’s opinion is juxtaposed with that of CS Machogu, who is supporting the validity of the KCPE tests.Machogu blamed a company hired to handle the QR code used to transmit the results for the KCPE exam problems during his presentation on Thursday before the Parliamentary Education Committee.

Machogu rejected charges made by Raila Odinga, the head of the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM), that KNEC gave a local business a contract to print the national tests in 2023, even though he acknowledged his mistakes.

“As a CS, I’ve gained knowledge because, as you can see, everything was done correctly in terms of the ministry. The contract was given to someone we can refer to as an outsider, but they failed to comply with the necessary standards,” Machogu stated.
