2 KCSE candidates sentenced for 1 year over theft by a Thika Court.

Two Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) candidates from Heights Academy in Thika have been sentenced to one year probation after being found guilty of stealing contrary to section 268 as read with section 275 of the penal code.

The two minors, Bor Peter Dut, a Sudanese and his Kenyan counterpart Michael Njenga Munene are reported to have stolen an Infinix Note 5 valued at Sh 18,000 from Eunice Wanjiku, a KCSE invigilator and a Techno N65 valued at Sh 10,000 from Hassan Gabow, a police officer respectively.

The court heard that the two committed the alleged crime on 6th of November while doing their exam papers.

Peter and Njenga returned the stolen items which were also produced in court as evidence.

The suspects who appeared before the Thika Resident Magistrate N.M Kyanya Nyamori were positively identified by their fellow students before they were arrested from their hideouts by police and arraigned in court.

While they pleaded guilty to the charges and begged for forgiveness, the court sentenced them to one-year probation without any option of a fine.

“The probation officers report prepared, the subject is put on one year probation,” said Nyamori.

In the same school, an invigilator was charged in court for tampering with examination papers before the start of Chemistry paper exams.
