Police Go After Cop Caught on CCTV Stealing Money From Teachers During KCSE

  • A police officer is on the run after being captured on Monday, December 5, by Closed-circuit television (CCTV) while stealing from Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) invigilators.

    The officer who stole from teachers at Kimulot High School in Konoin constituency in Bomet County ran away after getting wind of the ongoing investigations.

    Speaking to Kenyans.co.ke on Tuesday, December 6, National Police Service Spokesperson Dr Resila Onyango revealed that investigations are underway to establish the facts around the matter.

    “Necessary processes are indeed underway to ensure that justice is served,” Resila confirmed.

    The Administration Police officer had been posted to the school to man the ongoing KCSE by invigilators.

    In the video that has since gone viral, the officer employed a stealth tactic as he strode into the room that was almost empty at the time.

    He immediately began ransacking the bags that were left on the bench by the invigilators.

    “The matter is before internal disciplinary mechanisms by the Administration Police Service since it appears that the officer is from the AP wing,” Resila revealed.

    It is reported that police headquarters took action after local police administrators failed to act on the matter.

    “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 revealed.

    Bomet County Police Commandant Mathews Mangira divulged that three victims have since recorded statements after finding out the cash they had in their handbags was missing.

    “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” added Mangira.

    A team of police officers has been dispatched to track the rogue officer and bring him to justice.

    However, the amount of money the officers took from the teachers has not been made public yet.

    Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC) banned invigilators from carrying any items into the exam rooms including phones.

    KNEC requires invigilators to leave all their belongings in a safe room, in a bid to curb exam malpractices.
