Education Principal Secretary Belio Kipsang has warned that examinations will be suspended in centres where a case of early exposure will be reported.
Dr Kipsang said the government will not allow candidates in such centres to continue with the examination when it is clear that it will be cancelled.
“The centre will no longer be an examination centre incase cheating is detected but a scene of crime and police will have to handle the situation,” said the PS when he toured an examination storage container at Lang’ata sub-county headquarters.
Dr Kipsang who was accompanied by Kenya National Examinations Council (Knec) chairman Prof George Magoha and acting chief executive Dr Mercy Karogo said the government is determined to end cheating in national examinations.
He said earlier exposure of the examination materials is to the benefit of all candidates and therefore candidates at the centre will have to pay the price collectively.
Prof Magoha said the council is aware of parents who are contributing money towards the purchase of examination materials saying the materials they are planning to buy are fake.
He disclosed that some principals have refused to collect money from parents for the purpose of purchasing examination materials.
