“The government is keen to vaccinate all teachers, mainly those above 58 years, but we shall start with those involved in marking the exams,” said Magoha.

While admitting to exam malpractices, the CS did however thank teachers and security officers for delivering on their mandate.

“We had some unfortunate incidents where some teachers posted the exam on social media, and we have identified them. Those who went beyond the call of duty will be handsomely rewarded,” he stated.
