At least 16 people have gone missing at an examination centre in Kisii County where they were to sit for their papers, a day after 11 others were arrested for impersonation.

The centre had 103 registered candidates from various schools.

On Tuesday, 11 people who posed as candidates, among them unemployed trained teachers, were arrested. The proprietor Charles Osoro was also arrested.
