Police in Turkana County, Tuesday, arrested 63 Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) candidates in two Examinations Centres and one invigilator in Kakuma for engaging in exam malpractices.
County Police Commander, Samuel Ndanyi, said 25 candidates from Somali Bantu Secondary School and 38 from Greenlight Secondary Schools were later released on free bond and one invigilator will be released on Cash Bail as investigations continue.
Ndanyi said all of them will appear before court later to answer to charges of exam malpractices and negligence of duty.
He said police are investigating unusual activities in the two schools in Kakuma Refugee Camp.
“Sub-county Security Committee who were on routine KCSE examination check-up in Kakuma Refugee Camp noticed unusual activities,” he said.
All the mobile phones were scrutinized and money kept as exhibits.
Ndayi said the suspects were allowed to sit the next paper as the investigation continued.
A County Security Team and Ministry of Examination officials are currently on the ground investigating the incidences.
