Police officer arrested with KCSE candidate in lodging

Reports reaching Pulselive.co.ke say that the Police Officer was arrested by detectives, and he will be arraigned in court.

According to Citizen Digital, Trans Mara Deputy County Commissioner Mohammed Noor confirmed that the officer identified as Patrick Mwendo booked a room at a local bar, where he planned to spend the night with the candidate from Sankale Secondary School.

High number of candidates with pregnancies

This comes even as the government is faced with the challenge of a high number of candidates with pregnancies across the country.

At the beginning of KCSE last week, Narok County reported more than 30 candidates did not sit for their exams due to early pregnancies.

This added to the over 60 cases reported in the same county after 31 others failed to take their Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) exams.

According to government, more than 250 girls have missed their national exams due to pregnancies this year.
