3 Teachers, Police Arrested Over KCSE Exam Leakage.
Three teachers and a police officer were arrested in Mbooni East, Makueni County, on suspicion of leaking the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) exam.
The three were are said to have engaged in KCSE examination malpractice on the Kiswahili Paper 2. They are set to appear in court on Monday next week.
Education Cabinet Secretary Prof. George Magoha played down any negative impact that might emerge following the cases of exam cheating that have been experienced in the ongoing KCSE examinations.
“In terms of the KCSE examination, I’m glad to say that we are completing the week without any major incidents. Those who have attempted to breach the sanctity of our examinations we have arrested them without fear or favour.
"They will they actually shall face the full force of the law and they have themselves to blame.” Said Magoha.
“This exam has not leaked, it shall not leak because it is very well packaged. There are five layers through which you have to pass through before you get to a paper, so we release the exam after the container and the children go to the classroom at that point.”

He accused a few teachers of trying to compromise the integrity of the exam adding that they have been arrested.
“We have arrested them and we have been ahead of them. So this is to encourage all the other students and other stakeholders including parents
that your children will be treated fairly.” He said.
“I think it’s a business that is an underground business. I was watching certain things overnight where people are submitting all manner of fake chemistry practical papers and yet the real part of the paper has just been released this morning.”
He noted that having the practical paper doesn’t help because students still have to titrate and to show how calculations adding that it is only a fool’s paradise
