Nyanza region has been on the spotlight for the past few weeks over malicious plans to cheat in the on-going KCSE examinations.
Today, Cabinet Secretary- Education Professor George Magoha said the government had thwarted an attempt by a section of Nyanza parents to jeopardize the on-going national exam.
The parents had contributed money which they were planning to offer as a bribe to KNEC officers to access the exam papers beforehand.
According to CS Magoha, the parents in Kisii, Homabay and Migori had together contributed Kshs 200, 000 which was to be shared out among the police, supervisors and invigilators.
He further added that the Ministry of Education is already aware of the supervisors who were to get paid Kshs 120, 000, Police Kshs 40, 000 and invigilators Kshs 60, 000.
Professor Magoha also warned the candidates against any form of cheating reiterating that anyone who is caught cheating will not receive their KCSE results.
He was speaking when he was overseeing the distribution of KCSE exam papers in Kisumu County.
