Magoha to announce 2020 KCPE results today
By Betty Njeru | April 15th 2021
Education Cabinet Secretary George Magoha is set to release the 2020 Kenya Certificate of Primary Examination (KCPE) exam results any time now.
The results will be released at 2.00pm at Mtihani House, along Dennis Pritt road, Nairobi.
Magoha (pictured) had last week estimated that KCPE results would be out in two weeks time.
The exam, which is last year’s (2020) paper began on March 22- 24.
The 2020 national examination was unique to the fact that it took place in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic, which posed a great challenge to the Education Ministry.
The Standard reported that some examiners were unable to show up for the marking exercise due to the ongoing restriction of movement in the country.
This was as a result of the partial lockdown of some counties, while others decided not to turn up due to fears of the disease.

A statement to media houses says the results will be announced at 2 pm.
