A school in Nakuru has been deregistered by the government following malpractices during the ongoing Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) exams.

In a letter from the Ministry of Education dated November 13, Education Principal Secretary Belio Kipsang said that the closure of St Theresa Girls Senior School would take effect from December 1, 2017.

“Following the examination malpractices which occurred in your school on or about 9th and 10th November, 2017, it has been decided that the registration of your school be revoked with effect from 1st December, 2017,” reads the letter in part.

According to Kipsang, the revoking of the private secondary school’s registration has been done in accordance with the registration of private schools regulations provided for in the Basic Education Act.

The school has further been directed to hand over its registration certificate to Nakuru County Director of Education, who is also the County Education Board (CEB) Secretary. The CEB, according to the Basic Education Act, keeps a database of all registered schools and teachers in every county.

This came hours after Kipsang issued a warning to learning institutions and candidates that they will be deregistered on the spot if found engaging in exam irregularities during national examinations.
