Azimio la Umoja - One Kenya coalition leader Raila Odinga has criticized the government over the recently released Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) results.

The former prime minister who was speaking during a recruitment drive for the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party on Monday, November 27, 2023, stated that it was shameful that different candidates were awarded similar marks in a subject.

While criticizing the government, Raila claimed that President William Ruto's regime was facing problems because they denied him his victory in the 2022 general election.

"Sasa mmeona vile mambo ya mtihani imekua, watoto katika darasa moja wanapata gredi moja, ni aibu kubwa. Hii serikali ya Ruto kila pahali wanashika inaoza, inanuka tu, kwa sababu gani? Laana ya mwenyezi Mungu, waliiba wakameza ikakwama kwa koo na haitatoka hapo, mpaka waanguke chini," he said.

Raila's remarks come amid complaints from parents and schools over the results announced last week.

The Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC) responded to the grievances aired by various schools stating that only results received via SMS code had errors.

KNEC CEO David Njengere further clarified that the error mentioned was brought about by configuration issues and that KNEC had contacted the SMS service provider who resolved the issue immediately.

"The error affected only the SMS results due to configuration issues, as the results in the KNEC portal are accurate, KNEC notified the SMS service provider and the error in the text messages was resolved immediately," KNEC said.

He, however, admitted that there were genuine cases and pledged to attend to them urgently. Njengere further advised learners to get provisional results from their respective schools for more accurate results.

"Candidates have been advised to visit their schools and collect the official provisional results slips and raise any query for review of their results, if any, within the stipulated 30 days period," he added.
