Covid 19 Pandemic led to the students wasting a lot of time at home for eight unexpected months.Little did the form four students know that they would spend this time doing nothing at home leaving some of them desperate in life for failing to complete their studies.Futhermore,they didn't know that they would sit for their 2020 exams in 2021.
Some students have shown uncouth behaviours during the administration of the ongoing KCSE exams.The behaviour of the Anestar Bahati Boys Secondary School candidates is still fresh in the memories of many after they stormed their neighbouring Anestar Precious Girls secondary school for unknown reasons.Unfortunately,70 students will face charges after the exams.
A KCSE student from Moi Kapcherop in Elgeyo Marakwet County has been arrested alongside other three candidates due to exam malpractice.The student turned violent and attacked the police officer who caught her cheating with the 'mwakenya' short notes as it is commonly known by the students.This prompted a thorough search at the dormitories that yielded several mobile phones,'mwakenyas' notes coupled with other exam materials that contribute to exam malpractices.
As reported by the Standard,this incident led to the arrests of the centre manager,the supervisor and the eight invigilators who were purported to have aided the cheatings.
The Elgeyo Marakwet County Commissioner Dr Omar Ahmed said that the arrested students will complete their exams in police watch.This happens when the students are almost finishing their 2020 KCSE exams.The teachers have been called upon by their employer to observe high integrity during the examination period.
