DCI Exposes Names of KNEC and CAK Officials Who Leaked Exams on 49 Social Media Accounts

New evidence demonstrates at this time that the perpetrators were dishonest.

Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC) and Education Ministry officials may have conspired for financial advantage to leak national examinations.

MPs, the Director of Criminal Investigation (DCI), and the Communication Authority of Kenya (CAK) met and discovered that government officials made money by posting exams on social media accounts.

In total, 49 social media accounts were created and activated to facilitate the distribution of exam questions.

Julius Melly, chairman of the Education Committee of the National Assembly, stated after the meeting that the DCI also provided the identities of KNEC and CAK officials involved in the scheme.

Mr. Melly did not reveal the identities of these officials, but he promised to do so before the end of the month, when the committee will submit its report to Parliament.

Melly stated during the closed-door meeting that the shared information reveals numerous examination system leaks involving big fish.

‘‘We have good information which touches on various sectors of the Ministry of Education. We found out how individuals opened social media platforms and the kind of information they shared,’’ Melly said.

He added that the committee will propose radical reforms in exam administration, supervision, and punishment for exam breaches, early exam exposure, collusion, and impersonation.

According to Melly DCI has provided the committee with more information on specific perpetrators.

They pointed officials who established social media platforms for leakages.

Some use multiple accounts involving large sums of money.

“They told us how much money exchanged hands where M-PESA and bank accounts were used as conduits which later landed to individuals,’’ he said.

Ezra Chiloba, the CEO of CCK, stated that robust end-to-end technology and privacy, self-destructing messages, and anonymous registration facilitate covert communication and continue to pose a threat to tracing individuals involved in the vice.
