A KCPE exam official who attempted to reveal information on the just finished national examinations in Turkana County was apprehended and is currently in jail.
Rift Valley Regional Commissioner Mohammed Maalim confirmed the incident on Friday and claimed the employee, a Center manager, was apprehended after attempting to take images of the exam papers and share them with a candidate in Nairobi.
Only one out of 8,343 locations had a manager try to take a photo of the English paper and email it to a candidate in Nairobi. The Center manager was quickly apprehended by us, and he is being held by DCI officers, the officer stated.
Officials were forewarned by the regional commissioner to avoid cheating on exams because doing so would result in their being subject to the full weight of the law.
When mitihani kwa sababu hautaweza kufaulu, “Mtu asijaribu kwenda upande huo na kudanganya,” he remarked.
Speaking before the beginning of the KCSE exams, Maalim emphasized that the process would be smooth and devoid of errors, noting that the government had increased security to prevent any fraud.
Additionally, he stated that some schools in Nakuru County had been connected to allegations of taking part in KCSE violations. To prevent jeopardizing investigations, he chose not to divulge the aforementioned schools.
“According to intelligence assessments, there may be certain schools planning to cheat on exams in the Rift Valley region. Every center manager will be escorted by two police officers, and we are on high alert, he stated.
I won’t disclose the school, he said, in order to avoid interfering with the investigation. We are looking into the matter. You will be arrested, lose your job, and become a guest of the state. Kama kuna Yule anajaribu ama ako na ndoto kama hiyo, tafadhali usidhubutu.
