Supervisor reveals how she caught student cheating in KCSE 2018

A candidate was on Thursday apprehended after being caught with leakage in the ongoing Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education exams.

According to police, Abshir Mohamed of Saad Secondary School, was nabbed with a Chemistry paper and an answer booklet in the exam.

The question paper, together with the answers, were contained in a phone he had managed to sneak into the examination room.

Further analysis of the phone revealed that Mohamed had current materials for English Paper three.

The authorities also found out that the 22-year-old student was part of a WhatsApp group that had 70 participants which was used to distribute the leakages.

The phone, however, belonged to Abshir Abdi Amin, based on the name registered to the sim card.

Nancy Murithi, who is the centre supervisor, explained that she reacted after she noticed how uncomfortable and shaky Mohamed was while writing his paper.

She approached the student and impounded the device which he had sneaked into the centre in his private parts.

The student was taken to the Pangani Police Station in Nairobi and was arraigned in court on Friday (9/11/18).

Elsewhere at the Oloolaiser High School, 19 students were arrested after going on strike on Thursday night.

The students recorded statements at Ngong Police Station and are set to be charged after the examinations.
