, NAIROBI, Kenya, Nov 4 – Two Administration Police officers are admitted to hospital after they shot at each other while guarding the just concluded Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) exams in Bomet.
The two were deployed to guard a container with KCPE examinations at the Sub County Commissioner’s office when they opened fire on each other after an argument.
Both were armed with G3 rifles and are now admitted to the Tenwek Mission Hospital.
According to police, an investigation has been launched to establish the cause of the incident in which they are likely to face charges once out of hospital.
The examinations came to an end on Thursday with Education Cabinet Secretary saying special measures have been put in place to ensure the marking is above board.
He said the process must be done the right way to promote credibility and fairness.
Matiang’i indicated that no examination leakages have occurred, attributing the outcome to the new system of administering exams.
He said that examination materials, which were stored in containers, were not tampered with and all facilitators such as head teachers and supervisors were ethical.
