Sapit calls for swift probe into alleged errors in 2023 KCPE results

Anglican Church Archbishop Jackson Ole Sapit has called on the Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC) to expedite investigations into protests from disgruntled parents and candidates over alleged errors in the 2023 Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) examination results.

Ole Sapit says the concerns are valid and the concerned parents should find redress at the council which by law is the custodian of the examination in question.

The Archbishop`s sentiments come only a day after  parents from a private school in Kitengela Sunday stormed Kenya National Examination Council’s  (KNEC) Mitihani house headquarters in Nairobi, protesting the alleged irregular awarding of results.

He pointed out that public institutions in the country ought to be driven by society’s core values of integrity, fairness, diligence and good conscience.

He called on relevant authorities to hold culprits accountable for any errors of omission or commission.

In a statement issued last Saturday by the KNEC called on all those aggrieved by their results to officially present their appeals.

KNEC, in the statement, said it had received appeals over some errors in results obtained by the short code 40054 that was provided by the Ministry of Education.

KNEC CEO said 133 complaints were received from candidates with low marks in English and Kiswahili.
