Magoha further stated that apart from Migori, Kisii and Homa Bay are also centres that they will watch keenly.
“The epicentre (of cheating) is in Migori going by last year, some people will be annoyed that I am saying this again but thats my job. Migori coming down to Kisii and Homa Bay,” said Magoha.
However, Magoha also said, some areas in North Eastern Kenya will also be on their radar.
“I will still say it again going by last year exams we also have problems in Mandera, Garissa and Wajir,” added Magoha.
The CS also urged parents to give their children ample time to sit the exams and also affirmed that the their close monitoring of ‘cheating’ hotspots is not meant to scare the students.
