An aircraft has crashed in Marsabit town around Kofia Mbaya area.

Earlier reports indicated that the aircraft was ferrying Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) exams, claims the ministry has dismissed.

“Education CS George Magoha has denied claims that the aircraft that crashed in Marsabit today was examination materials. The CS said all examination materials for both the KCPE and KCSE were safe and that no paper had been exposed to anyone in any manner,” the Ministry stated.

Sources privy to the details said that two of the occupants lost their lives. Among them was the pilot identified as John Mureithi.

Cause of accident is still unknown but witnesses have said that it was foggy.


The exams are scheduled to begin on Monday with Education CS Prof George Magoha assuring the public that preparations for the exams have been finalized.

Speaking in Kakamega on Friday, the CS warned private schools against demanding money from candidates.

He stated that the government had met the costs for the National examinations for both public and private schools.

More than 1.1 million candidates will sit for KCPE from March 22 up to March 24, 2021.
