    Education Cabinet Secretary Amina Mohamed says the move is meant to ensure that there is uninterrupted focus on students. She has also said she will personally lead teams monitoring the opening of examination containers across the country, to put a stop to exam irregularities.
    The government has banned public events, including visiting days, from schools with effect from next week.
    The move is meant to ensure that there is uninterrupted focus on students, Education Cabinet Secretary Amina Mohamed announced.
    The CS said the Kenya National Examinations Council (Knec) has already released the 2018 National Examinations calendar. Only candidates will remain in school as the other learners close for the November/December holiday.

    Ms Mohamed says she will personally lead the teams monitoring the opening of examination containers across the country, particularly in areas mapped out by the examination council as requiring keen attention.
    Speaking during the annual Kenya Secondary Schools Heads Association (Kessha) conference in Mombasa, Ms Mohamed said her ministry will also ensure that there is sufficient surveillance at all examination centres to work with teams from multiagency government officials.

    The CS said the school heads will be responsible for their respective examination centres in line with the Knec guidelines.
    "Principals must efficiently and effectively administer the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education Examination due in a few months. Continue preparing candidates adequately to improve the results of this year's examinations," Ms Mohamed said.
