The Cabinet Secretary for education doctor Maghoha has reported today that 35 exam Officers have also been arrested and 53 phones have been confiscated due to the cheating.
The KCSE examination resume are set to be released at may 10 as the examination marking commenced after the exam.
The CS has also said that those students who were involved in cheating will be forgiven while the invigilators will be punished.
He also specified that those who were caught with mobile phones will have their marks returned but will have some of their marks deducted.
The schools that had opened their papers earlier than the expected time will also have to explain to the authorities.
The results this year are expected to be lower than last year's because of the possible moderation due to exam cheating.
