Nairobi - Kenya National Examination Council CEO, Paul Wasanga, says 20 university students have been arrested for helping secondary candidates cheat in the ongoing KCSE exams.
According to Wasanga, the university students got extract questions from some supervisors and teachers who opened the exams, photocopied and resealed the package and sent them to the candidates, Daily Nation reports.
He said the students are from the University of Nairobi, Egerton University, Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology, Eldoret University, Mt Kenya University and Kabianga University.
Last month, four students in Mombasa were charged with cheating offences in the examinations.
They were found at the Chandaria Hall, which was the exam venue, with the English Paper 2 materials and a mobile phone.
They denied the charges and were released on bond of KES 50 000 or an alternative cash bail of KES 30 000 each until December 6 when their case will be heard.
