Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) marking is set to start in three weeks’ time.

Education Cabinet Secretary Prof George Magoha said Friday that all security measures are in place ahead of the marking process.

Speaking at the Naivasha exam container, Prof Magoha said all teachers involved in the process will be vaccinated against Covid-19.

"The government is keen to vaccinate all teachers, mainly those above 58 years, but we shall start with those involved in marking the exams," said Magoha.

Prof Magoha noted that despite the arrest of some examination officials for exam malpractices, teachers and security officers delivered on their mandate.

"We had some unfortunate incidents where some teachers posted the exam on social media, and we have identified them. Those who went beyond the call of duty will be handsomely rewarded," said Magoha.

On how students who have completed writing their KCSE will travel home, Prof Magoha said transport arrangements are in place for students traveling in and out of zoned areas.

"We have lockdown in five counties but we have made plans with security officers for the safe passage of all the candidates," said the CS.
