A Form Four student who was sitting his exam at a school in Nairobi has been arrested after a teacher caught him with a smartphone which had answers to the paper he was taking.

The Saad Secondary School student was at the time taking his Chemistry paper two when a supervisor noticed the student was suspiciously uneasy.

The centre supervisor Nancy Murithi approached the desk and saw the student with the said mobile phone whose number was registered under a different name and confiscated it.

She then handed it to the police and reported the matter to the sub county director of education.

According to the police, the student identified as 22-year-old Abshir Mohamed was arrested and booked at Pangani Police Station.

Upon inspection of the mobile phone, police found out that the Sim Card was registered under Mr Abshir Abdi Amin.

The phone had the current examinations materials for English Paper III and Chemistry Paper II, both questions and answers.

Police also found out that there was a WhatsApp group that had 70 other participants.

The student had sneaked the mobile phone into the exam room concealed in his private parts. He will be arraigned on Friday. 

His arrest comes after police revealed that a former MCA, alongside head of an NGO, colluded with teachers and students to get test materials in advance, either for filling up answers or for photocopying so that students could have time to ‘revise’. ​

Teachers, secretaries and clerks would also not be allowed in examination centres.
