A police officer leads away two of the 11 people arrested for alleged impersonation in the ongoing KCSE examinations at the at Milimani Ramasha Academy in Kisii Central.

And as the KCSE examinations entered the second day on Tuesday, Kisii lived up to its notorious reputation following the arrest of 11 people for posing as candidates.

Education officials and senior police officers from Kisii Central Station raided the Milimani Ramasha Academy early Tuesday morning and arrested the suspects for alleged impersonation.

An unknown number of other ‘candidates’ also managed to escape from the school in Kiogoro Division, Nyaribari Chache constituency.

Area DCI Martin Korongo and Kisii Central Sub County Police Commander Zachary Kimani led the raid that led to the arrest of the school’s deputy principal.

The school’s head is said to be on the run.
