A Parliamentary committee on Education was in Eldoret town on Tuesday to receive views from members of the public and other stakeholders over claims the 2022 KCSE was marred with irregularities.
The team was led by Nyamira County Woman MP Jerusha Momanyi.
Addressing the press after the forum, Momanyi said they had been tasked to find out the truth behind the claims.
She said they will be moving around the country collecting public views before coming up with a report that will be tabled in parliament.
The committee started its public forums on Tuesday.
We hope by the time we finish, we shall get all information we want,” said the MP.
“We’re out because we must find out the truth as there was public outcry which we must look into,” she added.
Uasin Gishu County Executive for Education Dr. Janeth Kosgei who hosted the team at the county multi-purpose hall welcomed the probe into the cheating claims.
She said there was a need for the truth to come out so that any school and student involved in malpractice face the full force of the law.
It’s a critical issue to change students’ mindset and all participants. We want to expose cheaters so that we bring back sanity, integrity and good values in the education sector,” said the CECM.
