5 teachers arrested after DCI storm school during ongoing exams

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.
