PS Gordon Kihalangwa briefs journalists in Kajiado at 5am on October 30.
The arrest took place as the Form Four students were preparing to sleep and the police on duty handed the suspect to DCI.
Kajiado Central Deputy County Commissioner, Charles Wambugu, said the suspect is still with DCI and the student he was going to be handed the documents will also be required to record a statement.
“The suspect told the police he was handed the documents to deliver to the candidate. We will leave no stone unturned in this offence because the police must track down the person who handed the papers to the watchman,” said Wambugu on the phone.
Wambugu said the watchman was arrested at 10pm and the girl in question will record a statement as soon as she is through with all the exams.
“We do not want to instill fear or interrupt her concentration as the exams are still ongoing,” said Wambugu.
Meanwhile, Kajiado County Commissioner David Kipkemei on Monday night rescued a Class 8 pupil hours after she had been married off in Mailwa area of Matapato South Ward.
Kipkemei said the pupil, who was expected to be part of rehearsals at Mailwa Primary School examination centre on Monday was conspicuously missing.
“When we received a tip-off from the neighbours of her/ parents, I led my security men to the house of the man who had supposedly married the 14 year old girl but he escaped before the arrest,” said Kipkemei on phone.
He said the police also moved to the parents of the girl but they had also escaped security dragnet.
“I am happy to report that we managed to secure her and she is now sitting her Class 8 examination at the school. She is a pupil at Sere Primary School,” said the CC.
Earlier in the day, Immigration PS Gordon Kihalangwa officiated the opening of the examination papers in Kajiado and assured those doing examination that their centres are properly secured.
