Egerton students pocket millions from fake KNEC exams leakage on WhatsApp, Telegram

Four University Students from Egerton University in Nakuru have been arrested by KNEC and DCI officials after their fraudulent activities on social media platforms WhatsApp and Telegram were brought to light.

The students allegedly claimed to be selling leaked KNEC national exam papers to parents through WhatsApp and Telegram groups, barely a month before the start of the national exams.

The four students are Kevin Anunda, Francis Manyara, Bravin Osano and the final one has been concealed as he turned state witness in the case against his partners. They are expected to be arraigned at the Milimani Law Courts today morning.

The students will be charged with three counts; lying to the public, publication of false documents and being in possession of numerous ID cards, ATM cards and SIM cards that do not belong to them.

Allegedly, the students operated 15 different groups span across social media platforms, where they claimed to be selling leaked papers for between Sh. 5,000 and Sh. 35,000 each. One group as reported had more than 2,500 members.

KNEC and DCI sleuths have retrieved the money collected, said to be well over Sh. 4 million deposited in two different bank accounts. The money is with the DCI and is frozen at the moment.

KNEC boss David Njeng’ere refuted claims of any exam leaks for the upcoming finals, warning parents and guardians against being duped since exam papers are in safe custody.

“In moments of anxiety, students can easily be cheated. The public needs to be aware that nobody has access to examination papers and anyone purporting to do so is a con. Every candidate will get access to the papers at the same time on the examination day,” he said.

The national exams are slated to commence on 28th November with the KCPE written ppers and conclude on 1st December 2022. Thereafter, the KCSE exams will begin on 1st December and end on 23rd December 2022.
