Students of Ambira Boys High Schools who were arrested over allegation of exam cheating will remain in custody for seven more days.
Appearing before Ukwala Resident Magistrate Gladys Adhiambo, the eight students did not take plea as the prosecution asked for seven more days to complete their investigations.
The boys who recorded themselves after completing the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) could be heard confessing at how well they cheated.
Also in the video, the eight could be heard insulting Education CS Amina Mohammed and Interior CS Fred Matiang’i.
The video which was shared widely across the social media caught the attention of the president who strongly condemned the act promising necessary actions.
Allegations of exam cheating come at a time when the government had done all things necessary to make sure that it remains something of the past.
Candidates, teachers and parents were all warned to face the law if they are found guilty of the offence.
Speaking at Rangala Girls, KNEC Chairman George Magoha warned the students of Ambira Boys that action will be taken if they are found guilty of cheating.
He also condemned parents for failing to raise their children with good morals that are the cause of such actions.
