Education Principal Secretary Belio Kipsang.
The Ministry of Education is working on policies to tame cheating among private candidates sitting national examinations.

Education Principal Secretary Belio Kipsang yesterday said despite cases of cheating in the ongoing KCSE exam having reduced this year, most of those implicated are candidates writing the examination in private centres. Kipsang said private candidates take advantage of their centres to defy the Kenya National Examinations Council (Knec) regulations.

Last week, at least 35 mobile phones were confiscated at a private examination centre in Nairobi and 26 people arrested.

Under the policies, Kipsang said private candidates might be placed in regular schools registered as examination centres for easy monitoring.
