Kenya National Examination Council yesterday dismissed reports of leaks in the ongoing Kenya Certificate of Secondary School (KCSE) examinations.

Knec Chief Executive Officer (CEO) David Njengere yesterday said that no paper can leak, owing to water tight measures that have been put in place to secure the exams.

Njengere (pictured) said any purported leaked examination papers were fake.

He regretted that Kenyans have time and again been duped into buying the fake papers from fraudsterds.

“Fraudsters are trying to con Kenyans promising them that they can give them these papers but it is all lies. But you know Kenyans in their usual style, they are duped to pay money on things that do not exist,” said Njengere.

Social media

He was responding to claims that yesterday’s papers were leaked.

“All these are stories. You now what happens, there are all these characters that are making money from Kenyans so what they do is they go and promise on social media sites that they can provide the papers. All that is hogwash,” he added.

Yesterday, the candidates sat the Biology and History papers Two and will take their Biology practical paper today.

Just a few more papers, including Physics theory, Geography, Business Studies, Agriculture are left, with the exam set to end next Friday with Physics practicals.
