Dear Kenyans,

Since 2016, the country has been on the path of major reforms in the education sector and notably in the management of national examinations.

These reforms were intended to restore sanity to the examination process and maintain the dignity and integrity of our education sector. 𝗧𝗵𝗲𝘆 𝘄𝗲𝗿𝗲 𝗺𝗲𝗮𝗻𝘁 𝘁𝗼 𝗲𝗻𝘀𝘂𝗿𝗲 𝘁𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗴𝗿𝗮𝗱𝘂𝗮𝘁𝗲𝘀 𝗮𝘁 𝘄𝗵𝗮𝘁𝗲𝘃𝗲𝗿 𝗹𝗲𝘃𝗲𝗹 𝗮𝗿𝗲 𝗿𝗲𝗰𝗼𝗴𝗻𝗶𝘇𝗲𝗱 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗿𝗲𝘀𝗽𝗲𝗰𝘁𝗲𝗱 𝗮𝗰𝗿𝗼𝘀𝘀 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝘄𝗼𝗿𝗹𝗱.

Back in 2016, and following serious concerns about the management of national exams, the Government of Kenya identified a secure printing firm in the UK – Stephen Austin Printing Ltd. This is a Security printing firm that deals with several exams and other high stakes documents in different parts of the world. Kenyans will agree that in that period, sanity returned in the management of exams, with grades that reflected reality.

It led to what KNEC has called misalignment of marks and grades. Grades in Science and Social Studies as well as Religious Studies were truncated. The system deployed could not produce the Plus and Minus signs. What a shame.

Consequently, for the first time in our country, some children are in court, seeking to establish their true grades while the education ministry is admitting students to form one, including those still challenging the marks they were awarded.

Virtually every home had a candidate or knew a candidate among those who sat KCPE and KCSE. KCPE alone had close to 1.4 million candidates. The steps we outline below are critical:

1. The circumstances under which the printing of exams was transferred from the UK to Mombasa Road must be investigated.

2. Kenyans must be told how the integrity of the exams was secured during the transfer from the UK to Mombasa Road and later to another printer in Asia.

3. It is the right of Kenyans to know the cost of the termination of the contract with the UK firm.

4. Kenyans must be informed of how the Mombasa Road firm was identified and awarded the tender and if procurement laws were followed.

5. Kenyans must also be informed of how the firm to relay KCPE results was identified, whether it is the same one that will relay KCSE results and whether procurement laws were adhered to.
