The Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC) board was on Thursday dissolved over irregularities that marred national examinations in 2015.
Former University of Nairobi Vice-Chancellor Prof George Magoha has been appointed as the new chairman of the board, with immediate effect.
The council's chief executive officer Joseph Kivilu and eight other top officials have been ordered to immediately record statements with the police.
Interior Cabinet Joseph Nkaissery directed the nine, who are suspected to have been involved in exam leakage, to record the statements so that action can be taken against them.
