Student Charged With Illegal Possession of KCPE, KCSE Exam Papers

A Zetech university student has been charged with illegal possession of KCPE and KCSE exam papers.
Oscar Brighton, alias Jagongo, faced two charges before Chief Magistrate Wendy Kagendo in the Milimani Law Courts.
He denied that he was found with national examination material illegally obtained from an unknown location within the country on various dates between March 7 and 10, 2022.
He was also charged with revealing the contents of exam materials to another person via his mobile phone.
The papers were for the 2021 Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) and Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) National examinations.
He is said to have committed the crime on the same dates and in the same location as others who are not in court.
Brighton pleaded for lenient bond terms before Chief Magistrate Wendy Micheni, denying the charges.
He claimed he was not guilty. The court released him on Sh500,000 cash bail or Sh1 million bond.
The case will now be heard on March 28th.
The Economics student was apprehended in early March by undercover sleuths from the Kenya National Examination Council’s (KNEC) monitoring and surveillance unit.

“A few scrupulous people have over the last five years devised a new dirty trick of opening examination packages a few minutes before the start time, in what we call the “early exposure”.” CS Magoha said.
The cartels in question, according to the CS, were photographing the exam with mobile phones before sneaking out the questions and passing them on to a hired group, who would then tackle the questions and send the answers back to the examination center.
