15 arrested for malpractice in ongoing KCSE examinations

At least 15 people, including exam centre managers and invigilators have been arrested over malpractice in the ongoing KCSE examinations.

The National Examination Council Chairman George Magoha says the 15 were found attempting to smuggle foreign materials into two examination centers in Kisii County and in Western region.

Magoha has warned that anyone found engaging in exam malpractice will face the full force of the law.

This as the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education examinations entered day two Tuesday.

And amid heightened security during the examination period, already several individuals are behind bars for allegedly conspiring to cheat.

Magoha says 15 individuals have arrested for trying to smuggle foreign materials and will now face the full wrath of the law.

Five people were nabbed at the Monianku secondary school in Gucha South, Kisii County.

The suspects were allegedly caught photocopying a chemistry paper in a premise next to the secondary school.

Magoha says systems put in place early in the year to detect exam malpractice played a key role in helping nub the culprits.

The National Examination Council has in the meantime warned stakeholders against engaging in acts that may compromise the integrity of the national examinations.
