Magoha had earlier on said cases of exam malpractices had declined compared to the past years.
“The number of examination malpractices has been reducing significantly over the last few years but we had challenges in Nyandarua, West Pokot and Garissa, where some teachers and exam officials tried to interfere with the tests. Action has already been taken against the culprits,” said Prof Magoha.
