In connection with the ongoing Kenya Certificate of Secondary School (KCSE) exams, a police officer is being investigated after it was claimed that he was captured on camera reportedly stealing at a school in Bomet county.
The police officer, who was a member of a group of officers assigned to staff exam centers in the county, is accused of robbing Kimulot High School in the Konoin constituency's female invigilators on Monday, December 5.
CCTV cameras placed in the room where the teachers kept their baggage in accordance with the exam requirements captured the occurrence.
The armed cop can be seen entering the room and sitting adjacent to where the teachers had stored their personal belongings in the widely circulated video that was posted on social media.
He can be seen raiding the handbags and taking what appears to be cash. He puts the things in his pockets and puts the purses back where they were before leaving.
Mangira said, "One of the victims stated that she lost 100 shillings, another lost 900, and the other 300 shillings, which prompted them to speak with the school administration to study the CCTV camera."
After discovering that their money had vanished, the teachers complained to the school administration, which resulted in the removal of the room's CCTV footage.
The officer will face appropriate punishment, according to the police, if found guilty.
"We have sent county headquarters officers to the area to confirm the information that is currently in the public domain. A senior police officer at the Bomet County headquarters stated, "We are seeking to confirm whether or not the incident occurred in the school so that necessary action can be taken.
