Education CS Ezekiel Machogu already launched the start of the 2023 National Examination season.
The event took place on Monday at the New Mitihani house in KNEC headquarters.
Several leaders and representatives from various ministries were present at the event.
The officials were drawn from the national government administration, county and subcounty education, the Ministry of Interior and others from the Ministry of ICT.
Interior PS Raymond Omollo, TSC CEO Nancy Macharia, Education PS Belio Kipsang, TVET PS Esther Muoria, and KNEC CEO David Njengere were also present.
During the event, the officers were issued with padlocks and keys that will be used for the safety of the examination containers.
Njengere said the 576 distribution centres or containers will be used for storage of Kenya Primary School Education Assessment and KCPE examinations.
He added that 567 containers will be used for the distribution of KCSE papers.
“The council has acquired an additional 82 containers to make sure we facilitate this process especially because we have 13 newly created sub-counties which did not have containers,” Njengere said.
Machogu urged all personnel taking part in the national examinations, to dispense their duties with utmost professionalism in line with the set guidelines.
He said the Ministry will not spare anyone who will be involved in malpractices.
