, KISII, Kenya, Nov 9 – A university student is due in court in Kisii after he was arrested while sitting the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) exams at Nyansankia Secondary School.
The suspect is said to have been doing the exams since Monday this week for a candidate who registered but did not show up.
He will be arraigned at the Ogembo Law Courts.
The arrest comes as two suspects alleged to be key masterminds in exam leakages in the ongoing exercise were detained by police who were working together with the Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC).
According to Education Cabinet Secretary Amina Mohamed, the two were nabbed during a multi-agency operation between the Kenya National Examinations Council and the police.
She stated that the suspects were responsible for irregularities over the last two years.
She further warned teachers who will be involved in the early exposure of exams that they will be arrested and prosecuted.
