REVEALED! Kenya A Hotbed Of Academic Dishonesty

We as a country have been a happy lot after a good representation in Dubai where a Kenyan teacher won the Teachers Global Award.

This time, we are also trending for the wrong reasons as our country is ranked as a hotbed of academic dishonesty.

It is described as a hotbed of academic dishonesty, where jobless graduates are minting millions of shillings writing thesis and term papers for students in the United Kingdom.

According to the British media, doctorate candidates pay £2,000 (Sh264,000) to £6,000 for dissertations. “Kenya is the hotbed where the writing happens. There is high unemployment and a job working from home is coveted. They have good English and low overheads,” Dr Thomas Lancaster, a senior fellow at Imperial College, London, was quoted by the British press as saying.

“There are thousands of people in Kenya whose job is to write essays for cheating students. There are several writers in every apartment block,” he added.

A motion is set to be introduced in the UK parliament to ban all forms of advertising for any assistance in academic work.
