 5 Teachers Arrested Over Exam Irregularities

Detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) detained five  teachers from a school in Migori County on Wednesday due to anomalies  found in the exams being administered for the Kenya Certificate of Secondary  Education (KCSE). The detectives launched the investigation when the five teachers from St. Mary’s  Mabera Girls’ Secondary School in Kuria West, Migori County, were charged with  a number of inconsistencies.

Detectives found thirty cell phones during the sting that they believed were being  used to cheat on tests. The phones were seized while more research was  conducted. The phones that have been found will be utilized as evidence against the suspects  in court, according to DCI Richard Cheruiyot of Suna East Sub County.

Before the law runs its inevitable course, the suspects were taken to the Migori  Police Station after their arrest. Charles Onyari, the principal of Nyambaria High School, was suspended by the  Teachers Service Commission (TSC) as a KCSE center manager due to  irregularities in exams, and this suspension came just hours before his arrest.

The Nyambaria Boys High School in Nyamira County, which scored a mean score  of 10.89 to win the 2022 KCSE exam, made the case more intriguing. Similar to this, six persons were detained and charged with selling forged Kenya  KCSE exam papers on Monday. The DCI announced the arrest of the six people who were allegedly running  multiple Telegram accounts and selling phony KCSE papers. Two college students from Thika and a twenty-year-old social media administrator were among those detained.

“In the ongoing crackdown on perpetrators, six social media admins for various Telegram sites involved in examination malpractices in the ongoing KCSE national examinations have been arrested,” the DCI said in a statement.
