Police Officer Manning KCSE Exams Caught On CCTV Stealing Money

The officer had been assigned to provide security at the Kimulot Secondary School in Bomet County following the ongoing KCSE exams.

“We have dispatched officers from the county headquarters to the ground to verify the information that is now in the public domain. We are trying to verify whether or not the incident occurred in the school so that appropriate action can be taken,” a senior police officer at the Bomet County headquarters told the Nation.

According to the county police commandant Mathews Mangira, the officer allegedly went into a room where the invigilators were storing their stuff, including phones and other valuables, and ransacked the bags,

In returning to the rooms, the victims learned that the cash in their handbags was missing and they recorded statements on the matter.

"One of the victims reported that she lost a hundred shillings, another lost nine hundred, while the other three hundred shillings, which prompted them to consult with the school administration to review the CCTV camera" said Mangira.

From the CCTV footage, the police officer can be seen entering the room, while dressed in full uniform and carrying what appears to be an AK-47 gun.

The officer is then seen sitting on a sofa between some purses, and searching each purse one at a time before leaving the room.

The video further shows the officer withdrawing what appears to be money from the bags and placing it in the side pockets of his pants.

Mangira stated that the investigators are reviewing the footage to help produce distinct visuals that can be useful when putting together the case against the accused.

In order to prevent cheating, the Knec forbids invigilators from bringing any objects into the classrooms, including phones, during exam time.
