KNEC OFFICIAL CHARGED
A Knec official yesterday was released on a Sh500,000 bond after he pleaded not guilty to leaking the KCSE chemistry exam.
Dennis Were is the first official from the Coast region to be arrested over exam cheating this year.
Were allegedly opened the bag containing the chemistry exam, instead of the mathematics case, revealing the contents.
Other officials present reportedly alerted CID officers and they arrested Were.
Were allegedly disclosed the contents of chemistry Paper One on Monday at Migadini Complex High School in Changamwe.
Were was also charged with neglecting his duties as a Knec official, violating the Examination Board Act.
There were more than 5,000 cheating cases 2015. This year, Education CS Fred Matiang’i issued strict guidelines. Students were banned from carrying clipboards and geometry sets to exams.
Were was also charged with neglecting his duties as a Knec official.
