“Any invigilator or supervisor or security personnel who attempts to compromise exams will be apprehended immediately and charged in a court of law,” said Mohammed adding that all state organs have pledged to support the process.

Held accountable

He also said that examination officers at exam centers will be held accountable should cheating cases arise.

“We have forewarned you, if we find out we shall not wait, because if we find out it is the school which will come out guns blessing towards high heaven that they take you to court and we are spending millions of shillings defending nothing,” said Magoha.

Magoha also assured teachers that they should ignore circulations on social media about exams having leaked.
