For the first time in the entire history of Dr Mutula Kilonzo, Hon Kalonzo Musyoka and Jacob Kaimenyi as Ministry of Education, there has been no exam cheating. The government through the Ministry had tightened the security and had enough measures on the pre and post Exam dates.



Dr Matiang announced the TOP KCPE candidate score. The TOP pupil got 436 from Last year's 449. The drastic drop showed that pupils were using their brains which were not under influence of anything.


KNEC officials were under pressure from the Cabinet secretary, they did the unthinkable by providing resources for the teachers in Marking the exams without any influence and released the results early. The main purpose of releasing the results early and immediately after marking was not to create a room results  manipulation.



Based on the results released by the Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development (KICD) in Nairobi, only 5,190 obtained 400 marks and above compared to 7,560 in 2015 while more than 100,000 pupils got more than average Marks of 250.

The actions that Dr Matiang implemented increased confidence in him and citizens went to social media requesting him to vie for the presidency in 2022. "The spirit that the cabinet secretary have will even seal corruption deals in Kenya if he will be the next president." Says media personalities.
