Officials of the Kenya National Examination Council (Knec) made a surprise visit to the school and found exam rooms unmanned by invigilators and security officers.

They got suspicious after they noticed two candidates in one of the exam rooms sitting close to each other and appeared to be comparing notes while the Kiswahili Paper 3 exam was in progress.

One candidate then threw a booklet out of a window.

A Knec official, who declined to give her name, said she had briefed Knec chairman George Magoha about the incident.

“You will forgive me, since I’m not authorised to speak to the media. You can contact Prof Magoha who has the information,” said the official.
