Following a successful appeal, the Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC) will enable 25 students from Dibuoro Secondary School to retake the KCSE.

Asst. County Director of Education Nelson Sifuna told the media on Wednesday, April 5, that KNEC authorized the applicants to retake the national exam after they petitioned the government to challenge the results due to alleged misconduct.

The 25 students will now take the exam in 30 days after KNEC decided their appeal was valid.

The 25 candidates were among 42 school students detained on March 19 during the administration of the Chemistry practical exam by a multi-agency team.

The candidates had four phones seized. Further investigation found the students were members of a WhatsApp Group that traded exam papers.

Among the papers shared with the candidates were the Chemistry Paper 3 and the Kiswahili question paper. So KNEC teamed together with the investigative authorities to find the breach’s mastermind.
