Five hundred and forty-nine (549) candidates from Oriwa Boys High School have finally received their 2022 Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) results after a month of waiting.
The Homa Bay county school had its results withheld when Education Cabinet Secretary, George Magoha, released the examination results on Saturday, April 23.
The school’s results were withheld after Magoha noted that his Ministry had received reports of malpractices and the Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC) had to investigate the matter further.
The school is located at Kandiege in Rachuonyo North Sub County, Homa Bay County.
