After the Christmas festivities, focus has shifted to the kcpe results release.
937 467 candidates who sat for the exam are eagerly waiting for the hour in which the results will be released.
Knec warned strict marking exercise to detect candidates who attempted to undermine the integrity of the examinations.
Knec CEO Joseph Kivilu said those found cheating will be punished.

Those found to have engaged in examination irregularities will have appropriate action taken against them

Said Dr. Kivilu.

He added Knec had the ability to detect irregularities with use of international acceptable threshold to determine the validity and reliability of the examinations.
Parents and candidates have painted a picture of panic as time ticks to the hour.
The Kenya National Parents and teachers Association (KNPTA) National chairman Nathan Barasa supported Mr. Kivilu that those found guilty must be punished individually.

There are some candidates who never cheat even when their colleagues attempt to, they should not be punished just because most of the candidates in that school cheated,

said Mr. Barasa
