Ten people, among them eight teachers who are linked to missing examination materials in Narok North have been arrested.

Narok police boss Thomas Ngeiywa said the eight teachers and two police officers are set to be arraigned.

“We have arrested all people who were in the police vehicle at the time of the incident. They are persons of interest in this case,” he said.

Olenamuka Primary School head teacher, Ann Kirui, Wednesday found some materials missing after she picked up the papers from the Olokurto container around 4am.

She was being escorted by police officers.

Ngeiywa said the missing papers were for Kiswahili, Insha and Science.

“It was around 4am when eight head teachers picked up their papers. They were being escorted by the police in one vehicle. Two teachers alighted and that is when one teacher realised she didn’t have her materials,” said Ngeiywa.

However, the affected candidates started their examinations at 10.10am, according to County Education Officer James Nyaga.

Ms Kirui, who was helping in the investigations is being held by the police. The officers said they were looking for the missing examination materials.
