Mudavadi calls for prosecution of exam cheats
The Amani National Congress (ANC) party leader Musalia Mudavadi has taken a swipe at the Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC) for failing to prosecute those who were found culpable of leaking examinations to students in last year’s national examinations.
Speaking at Mudavadi Girls Secondary School-Mazuu during a celebration to mark 50th years since its inception, the former Deputy Prime Minister said it was disheartening that KNEC had not taken anyone to court over exams malpractices.
Mudavadi said that it was devastating for both the parents and students to see KCSE and KCPE results canceled yet to date KNEC has not taken anybody to court over the issue, adding that the Ministry of Education must offer an explanation on what their investigations revealed.
He reiterated that the examinations body ought to find better mechanisms of resolving issues arising from exam malpractices in schools by changing legislation governing the tests.
He said KNEC should subject students to supplementary exams if leakage of the test is detected to avert forcing students to repeat, hence wasting more time for mistakes that they do not directly bare responsibility.
Vihiga Governor Moses Akaranga on his part called on the national government to devolve funds meant for infrastructure development in schools so as to improve the state of learning institutions across the country.
