The national government has deployed security across the country as Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) and Kenya Primary School Education Assessment (KPSEA) kicks off on Monday.

The national government has assured security of KCPE and KPSEA Examination in a bid of downplaying any form of cheating across the country.

However, Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC) Chief Executive Officer (CEO) David Njegere has shed light on examination leakage, sending a stern warning to fraudsters  who purports to sell examination materials to teachers and parents.

CEO David Njegere has assured that KCPE and KPSEA Examination in all the centers across the country are secure, affirming that there’s nobody who has access to the papers.

“We want to assure the country that in all the 32,000 KPSEA and 28,000 KCPE centers across the country the examination are secure. There are 576 containers across the country. There is nobody who has access to any of those papers. Anybody lying to you they can give you the papers before the day of the examination is a fraudster,” said KNEC CEO David Njegere

However, the interior Principal secretary Raymond Omollo said that the government has increased security deployment in volatile areas to avoid the disruption of the exam. The government has deployed 60,000 security officers across the country in a bid of limiting cheating in exam.

Education Principal Secretary Dr Belio Kipsang said that the government has increased the number of examination collection centers security up to the total 60,000 security personnel and 205 vehicles to distribute examination papers across the country.

The number of helicopters will ferry examination papers in areas that are likely to receive high amount of rainfall especially in eastern and North Eastern regions in the country.
