Mutheu Kasanga has predicted mass failure of KCPE 2021 candidates this year ahead of the official release of the 2022 Knec results in March.

According to an assessment test conducted whose results were released in February 2022, only 50 percent of the 2021-2022 KCPE candidates would have passed if the 2021 KCPE tests were conducted then.

She therefore called upon KCPE candidates and teachers to come up with the necessary interventions to guarantee improved results when the national tests are finally conducted.

Education CS Rubbishes Knec Report Predicting Mass Failure of KCPE 2021-2022 Candidates

Education Cabinet Secretary Prof. George Magoha however weighed in strongly dismissing the February report by the Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC) that suggested that candidates are not prepared to sit the forthcoming national examinations. Prof. Magoha castigated the council terming their assessments as inaccurate outright insensitive saying they date 12 weeks back. He dismissed widespread fears of unpreparedness saying candidates are ready to sit their exams. “You would’ve contextualised this report in such a manner that it was done more than 12 weeks ago, since then the learners have been in school and they’re going to be there for another 6 weeks before they have exams. What the hell do you think you’re doing by killing their spirits?” Posed the CS. The report recently released by the council raised concerns over the preparedness of a majority of Class Eight examination candidates whose learning was disrupted by a 9 month-forced break due to the COVID-19 pandemic. “Those children are intelligent, and all we should do is give them hope in life to do their exams and see how far they go,” Prof. Magoha however noted. The KNEC report had suggested that 18 out of the 47 counties had mean scores above 50.0, with Nairobi recording the highest mean score at 59.20%, followed by Garissa and Mandera at 56.34 and 55.11% respectively. The lowest mean scores were observed in Turkana (44.34%), Tana River (44.37%), and Samburu (44.51%) Figures from the council also show that 263, 480 candidates performed dismally with under 200 marks out of a possible 500 in 2019; translating to 24% of the 1,083, 456 candidates who sat for the exams that year. More than half of the total candidates scored below the average mark of 250, suggesting that a large number of pupils posted between average and below average performance in 2019.

Kenyans are now waiting anxiously to see what the 2021-2022 KCPE results will look like if the assessment was a true reflection of the 2021 KCPE Candidates’ academic abilities.

As the 2021-2022 KCPE national exams come to closure today, the national government has beefed up security along the Kenya-Somalia border to ensure that candidates sit for their tests without unnecessary interruptions.

Addressing journalists after opening the examination container at Garissa County Commissioner’s compound, North Eastern Regional Commissioner Mr James Kianda said centres served by helicopters included Hulugho, Galmagala, Liboi, Kulan, Habassweini, Arabiya and Takaba.


The use of helicopters was informed by sustained terror attacks by the Somalia-based Al Shabaab. Frequent attacks have resulted in deaths, injuries and damage to property.


The regional commissioner said security had been beefed up and that examination centres were safe. “The KDF and our border patrol units are manning the borders to ensure there is no interference from any other quarter out there,” said Kianda before touring Garissa Primary School.
