NAIROBI, (CAJ News) – SOME 11 students and six teachers have appeared in court on allegations of cheating during the crisis-marred Kenya National Schools Examination.

It is alleged the teachers, who were supervisors and invigilators Tenges Boys’ High School in the western Baringo Central, leaked a history paper to the students.

Samson Temu, principal magistrate at Kabarnet law courts, said the conduct of the scholars and teachers was in violation of the Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC) Act 29 of 2012.

The teachers and students have each secured bail to the tune of Sh50 000 (R6 600).

Temu has adjourned the case to December 19.

Meanwhile, two other students have been arraigned at the same court after a primary schoolboy (15) allegedly impersonated another (14) to write a science examination on his behalf.

Magistrate Nerolyne Idagwa has slapped the two minors with impersonation.

Cheating has marred the national examinations.

Last month, a teacher in Nyamira, also in western Kenya, appeared in court for illegal possession of exam papers.

Two other candidates were taken to court after smuggling mobile phones into examination rooms.

About ten cases of examination fraud have been reported in courts since exams began in November.
