The exams materials were claimed to have  originated from a female teacher  in Galana secondary school whom detectives are investigating .

“We have come to this conclusion after detectives found the two to have received exam materials in their mobile phone from a Ganze secondary  teachers. We also believe that she is a friend to both of them. After doing thorough investigation we have realized that the lady officer have also circulated the same materials to other individuals. Our investigations are still ongoing and we hope to arrest more culprits” said Mr. Keter

Keter blamed asked parents, students and community at large not to panic over the cheat saying the two officers acted on their own as individuals and they will be charged as individuals in the court of law.

“Kilifi County haven’t received a single exam irregularity case since this exam kicked off a few weeks ago. we have laid down a well elaborated security.  Our officers escort exams all the way from Mombasa to police armories where they are stored before they are dispatched to exam centers. Our county exams haven’t been tampered with” said commissioner

Friday last week, 11 private KCSE candidates in kilifi township secondary school were arrested and later arraigned in court after KNEC officials from Nairobi accompanied by senior detectives invaded the school and found them with leaked exams material.

They were found with geography paper1 and a mobile phone containing the same paper.
