The ministry of Education has cancelled the results of more than seven secondary schools in Garissa County over exam irregularities.

Over 200 candidates who sat this year’s Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) examination in Garissa sub-county will not receive their results.

Ikhlas Secondary School was the most affected after all the 127 candidates had their results nullified due to cheating.

Still, in Garissa sub-county, 56 candidates out of 69 from Young Muslim Secondary School will not receive their results.

At Excel Secondary School which had 23 candidates, 10 of them had their results canceled.

The results from three schools, Mnara boys, Al Azar, and Iqra secondary schools, in Garissa sub-county, have been withheld.

Garissa KNUT Executive Secretary Abdirizak Hussein faulted the Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC) for withholding and cancellation of examination results of schools in the county.

Mr Abdirizak demanded that KNEC should release the results saying withholding of results is causing a lot of anxiety among the candidates and their parents.

Speaking to journalists in Garissa, the executive secretary said while the matter of cheating is still under investigations, the candidates should receive their results.

“Why is KNEC withholding the results of candidates because they are under investigation? The exam body should release the results together with reasons why they are being investigated," he said.
