Three charged with a multi-million KSCE exam “leakage” fraud.

Three people have been detained by detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) in connection with a dubious test leaks scheme.

The three individuals who were charged on Monday are all Egerton University students, according to a police report from that day.

According to detectives, the three are accused of receiving millions of shillings via Telegram groups from parents and KCSE candidates under the pretense that they would sell them exam supplies for upcoming national examinations.

The three have been detained so far, according to the DCI report, and are located at the university’s main campus in Njoro, Nakuru County. “Detectives connected to the Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC) commenced investigations into the scam last week,” the report from DCI states.

According to reports, the detectives lured the syndicate’s leader, Kelvin Anunda Mogaka, alias Prof Lenchodas, 24, a fourth-year Bachelor of Science in Education student, into a trap on Thursday night and followed him to his home in Njoro, Nakuru County.

The primary suspect was shown in several images that cops posted on Twitter living luxuriously in Njoro and constructing a simple country house.

Detectives think that the main suspect, Mogaka, used two Telegram channels, each with over 13,000 subscribers, to extort millions of shillings from innocent bystanders.

Detectives acquainted with the case claim that during the raid at the suspect’s home, a stockpile of SIM cards and identity cards that the suspect had used to open fictitious MPESA and bank accounts where the received money would be put were seized.

According to the police report, “approximately Sh2 Million was detected by the detectives who also revealed that the suspect also operated a similar account at the Kisii KCB branch in one such account at Equity bank Kisii branch belonging to his brother who is a teacher in Mogongo Girls Secondary School.”

“Members were admonished to closely follow the method to save time in the Telegram groups, which featured instructions on how money would be made. One of the messages in the Telegram group stated, “Avoid many tales, all papers are available “It adds.

Detectives were informed by the suspect’s family that Mogaka had earlier assured him that he had won a bet and would be sending him money to build him a house at their residence in Mosocho, Nyamira County.

The detectives established that the fourth-year student was indeed building a “small house” in the hamlet when they went to the farmhouse in Nyamusi.

The suspects were freed on a bail of Ksh. 1 million or Ksh. 500,000 with the same surety.
