63 KCSE Candidates Arrested Over Exam Malpractice, Supervisor Not Spared

63 KCSE Candidates Arrested Over Exam Malpractice, Supervisor Not Spared.
On Tuesday, police in Turkana West Sub County arrested 63 Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) exam candidates and a supervisor on suspicion of exam malpractice.
Turkana County Police Commander, Samwel Ndanyi, confirmed that the arrests were made at two separate examination centers within Kakuma Refugee Camp – 25 candidates from Somali Bantu Secondary School and 38 from Greenlight Secondary School.
Mr Edward Ekodor Lochole, a supervisor, was also arrested, he said, and several phones were confiscated from Greenlight Secondary School candidates.
“The preferred charges against candidates and the supervisor were examination malpractices and an additional charge of negligence of duty for the supervisor,” the county police boss said.
He stated that the candidates were released on free bond to appear in the Wednesday morning paper, while the supervisor was released on cash bail.

Mr Ndanyi stated that a team of top county officials from the Ministry of Education has already arrived at the school to coordinate with the Sub County security committee in order to conduct investigations into the incident.
On Monday, when he officiated the opening of the exams container in Lodwar town with Turkana County Commissioner Muthama Wambua, Mr Ndanyi stated that police officers had increased surveillance at all examination centers in the county, including six within the Kakuma refugee camp.
This came after some police officers were detained within the camp for assisting in Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) exam irregularities.
He reiterated that all police officers will be required to follow all of the Ministry of Education’s regulations in order to avoid any malpractice during the exam period.

Meanwhile, Mr Wambua confirmed that exams were going well at schools in banditry-prone areas where security had been increased.
Exams for candidates at Kapedo Mixed Secondary School, near the border of Turkana and Baringo Counties, are being airlifted from Nairobi, he said, because bandits who ambushed vehicles coming from Lokori in Turkana County and Marigat in Baringo County pose a threat to the exams.
