An examination supervisor is still in hiding while three of his accomplices suspected of malpractices in the ongoing Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) were nabbed by police officers in Makueni County.

In a police report filed at Kalawa police station and seen by K24 Digital, the four were involved in examination malpractice at Ngungi mixed secondary school located in Mbooni East Sub-County.

The four; Kennedy Odhiambo the supervisor, Justus Wakamunyu the examination center manager, Joshua Makanga an invigilator, and Edwin Ogeto the security officer are said to have committed the crime on Thursday, March 17.

“Following early report on suspected KNEC examination malpractice reported at Ngugi Mixed Secondary School in Kalawa Mbooni East Sub-County vide my earlier briefs three of the suspects have been nabbed,” the report read in part.

“The supervisor namely Kennedy Odhiambo Okongo is still at large and being pursued by our officers,” it further added.

The three suspects were put in police custody and they are undergoing vigorous investigations before they are arraigned in court.

The national examination which commenced on Monday has been marred by several malpractices in at least six centres across the country despite Education CS George Magoha speaking tough on it.
