Manhunt For KCSE Candidate Who Escaped From DCI Raid At School Begins

Manhunt For KCSE Candidate Who Escaped From DCI Raid At School Begins.
The Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) is looking for a KCSE candidate who escaped from school during a sleuth raid.
On March 31, the DCI confirmed that it was looking for the candidate, who changed into civilian clothes and jumped over the fence when detectives arrived at the school.
The detectives suspected that the student fled in order to gain access to exam materials for the Agriculture paper, which was given on Wednesday, March 30.
According to the DCI, the candidate was with two other people and they left behind a mobile phone containing exam papers from Tuesday.
“He suddenly put on civilian clothes to conceal his school uniform and jumped over the school fence to a neighbouring compound. Detectives who were within the school’s vicinity became suspicious and followed suit over the fence, landing on the other side with a thud,” the DCI stated.
“He and two other unknown persons who were conversing in low tones scampered in different directions when the detective announced his arrival, leaving behind a mobile phone that contained a replica of the Geography and Physics papers administered on Tuesday and the Agriculture paper that the candidates sat yesterday,” the statement continued.
The DCI confirmed that a manhunt for the suspect and his associates is underway, with detectives from the forensic cyber and digital laboratory participating.
Notably, the DCI stated that it was committed to ensuring that the national exams were free of cheating, and that it had arrested several suspects on suspicion of tampering with the exams.
The DCI stated in the statement that four people are suspected of being part of a larger syndicate plotting exam malpractices.

“The four had masterminded examination fraud in social media groups with followers in their thousands sitting the ongoing KCSE examination, buying examination papers and answers.
"Gideon Tanui, Kevin Kiprotich, Justice Leting and James Obongo pleaded not guilty and were released on a Ksh300,000 cash bail and a bond of Ksh500,000 each with a surety,” the DCI noted.
