Nyambaria High School’s Principal Suspended as The Center Manager
Mr. Charles Onyari, the principal of Nyambaria Boys’ High School in Nyamira County, and suspicions of probable malpractice during the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) tests have created considerable controversy.
Mr. Onyari’s job as Centre Manager for the current KCSE exams is under threat.
Mr. Onyari was summoned to the Nyamira police station to submit a statement on the circumstances in issue, which sparked the uproar.
It appears that a security professional in charge of overseeing the exams reported concerns about a probable breach in the testing room’s security, causing the Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC) to launch an investigation.
Students at Nyambaria Boys’ High School have made serious allegations as part of this probe. They believe that law enforcement officers may have hidden illegal materials in their classes, implying that the school was set up to cheat.
It’s worth noting that this school had previously scored near the top of the nation on standardized tests the previous year, making these charges all the more serious.
Furthermore, the problem does not appear to be exclusive to Nyambaria Boys’ High School. There have been rumors that the heads of other schools, especially Gekano and Gekomoni, have been suspended by KNEC officials for similar reasons, signaling a larger problem with the testing procedure.
The total scenario is complicated, and KNEC is now investigating to determine the truth behind these charges.
As the investigation progresses, it will be critical to ensure a thorough and unbiased examination of the evidence in order to determine whether any misconduct occurred, whether by school authorities, law enforcement, or students, and to maintain the integrity of the KCSE examinations.
