Speaking at the Nairobi School when the 2017 KCSE results were announced by Education CS Fred Matiangi, Macharia said those teachers implicated will be punished.

She also declared that school proprietors found employing teachers who have been deregistered by TCS will be taken to court.

Earlier, while receiving the KCSE results at State House Nairobi, President Uhuru Kenyatta directed Matiang'i to work with Attorney General Githu Muigai to make presentations to the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Dr Keriako Tobiko so that cases of cheating involving more than 700 teachers countrywide are expedited.
