Kenya Exam Board Sacked Over Widespread Cheating Allegations

Written by Elvis Boniface

Kenya’s schools exam board has been dissolved over what have been described as irregularities in last year’s secondary school exams.

The chief executive and eight other officials have been told to make police statements.

According to our source, Ruth Nesoba in the capital, Nairobi, says that exam papers were widely shared on social media sites ahead of students sitting the exams.

She adds that many Kenyans are now questioning the credibility of the results.

Meanwhile, Kenyans have been reacting on social media to the news of the sacking of a local official who was filmed drunk last week as President Uhuru Kenyatta was on a visit to his area.

The government says he had betrayed the trust of the people and had to be fired.

The video has been widely shared and appears to show the man rolling on the ground, saying he was born to drink:

Some Kenyans have argued that the sacking will serve as a lesson to rowdy officers, but others say the man was unwell and needs help.
