A Kiambu teacher who was arrested Thursday on allegations of circulating national examination papers has pleaded not guilty after he was arraigned in Nairobi on Monday.
Appearing before Senior Principal Magistrate Benard Ochoi, Nicholas Ngumbau was accused of opening 10 accounts on WhatsApp and Telegram, where he was reportedly selling KPCE examination papers at Ksh.1,500 and Ksh.2,000 for papers that allegedly came with a marking scheme.
The court ordered Ngumbau to deposit a cash bail of Ksh.100,000 and provide one contact person or an alternative Ksh.200,000 bond with two sureties.
The teacher was arrested last Thursday in the Gikambura area in Kiambu after detectives infiltrated his groups posing as students seeking to purchase the examination papers.
The case will be mentioned on November 13.
