Education Cabinet Secretary Ezekiel Machogu rubbished reports that Nyambaria High School from Nyamira County topped the 2022 Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) exams.
Speaking during a presser at the Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development (KICD) in Nairobi on Friday, January 27, Machogu revealed that Mangu High School and Alliance High School topped the country having 82 and 72 A plain grades respectively.
Maranda High School came in third with 68 A plains while Kapsabet High School had 52 A plains.
Other top schools include; Kanga High School (49), Maseno School (48), Kenya High School(41), St Anthony's Boys High School Kitale(41), Alliance Girls High School(39), Nairobi School(39), Moi High School Kabarak (33), Cardinal Otunga Mosocho(28) and Nyambaria High School (28).
Machogu cautioned Kenyans against profiling communities over the 2022 KCSE exam.
"Each and every one of us comes from a community. We don't have to profile communities because the CS of Education comes from Kisii and then you start profiling communities that 800 As came from where the CS comes from. Kenyans you can be able to see the kind of falsehood being propagated around," he stated.
A section of politicians had earlier questioned the authenticity of the 2022 KCSE exam, which was announced by CS Machogu on Friday, January 20, 2023.
