Barasa to Move to Court Over Moi DEB Results, Wants Invigilators Prosecuted
Kimilili Member of Parliament Didmus Barasa has threatened to move to court if the ministry of education will not re-examine the KCPE results of candidates from the Moi DEB Primary school in Kanduyi, Bungoma county.
His comments come after the headteacher of the school went viral denouncing the results the ministry handed the school.
The headteacher was captured in a viral video weeping and saying it is impossible for the school’s candidates to score the marks they received.
The MP in a Facebook post revealed that he had contacted the education CS and implored him to order a review of the results of the school.
“I have asked CS Education My good friend Ezekiel Machogu to order Re-Examine of the KCPE exams for the pupils of Moi DEB Primary School in Bungoma, commonly known as The Commonwealth. If this will not happen in the next 14 days, I will move to court,” he said.
The MP further said allegations of exam irregularities must be proved beyond any reasonable doubt for one to be victimised.
He said students should not be victimised as those who managed the exams are walking scot-free.
“Examination cheating must be proven beyond reasonable doubt and not through one’s conscience and/or imagination. The definition of ignorance is where pupils are punished and no adult in the name of invigilators is prosecuted… Every counterpart must be brought to book na sio tafadhali,” he said.
The top student from the institution scored 365 marks out of 500, down from 418 posted by the top student in the 2021 KCPE exams.
