KNEC Issues Warning Against Fake Exam Sellers

  • Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC) CEO Joseph Kivilu has said that the Council is working on intercepting fake examination papers that are reportedly in circulation.

    The Council stated that it will take stern legal actions against those found with these fake papers which are reportedly sold by university students with prices ranging from Sh50,000 to Sh200,000.

    15 students from Mombasa County were arrested on Wednesday after they were caught cheating in the examination room. The students, who were set to be arraigned in court today, were said to be having mobile phones and fake examination papers.

    This comes after another group of 5 was arrested last week in Kiambu after they were found with examination materials hidden in their private parts. Kikuyu OCPD, Mutune Maweu, confirmed the incident insisting that cheating in exams was punishable by law.

    He advised parents and students to stop buying the fake papers warning them of risking jail term once found culpable of examination offences.

    Education Cabinet Secretary, Professor Jacob Kaimenyi, had previously issued a warning against those caught cheating in examinations this year. There has been an increase in examination irregularities over the past few years due to technological advancements.
