Students to sit KCSE in police cells after robbing Nairobi resident property worth KSh330, 000


Two students will be forced to sit their Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) exam in police custody after they were arrested on Wednesday, November 8, for robbing a Nairobi resident of property estimated at KSh330, 000.

According to Nairobi Police Commander, Japheth Koome, the students from Soweto Baptist Secondary School in Kibera, were part of a four-member gang who had been terrorizing Kibera and Kilimani residents.

A civilian, Kevin Mwangi, 26, was arrested alongside the students, as another suspect – a student at Kangemi High School – managed to escape.

Koome says police raided a house that the four had rented in Kibera and found a MacBook laptop worth Ksh.250, 000, a HTC phone valued at Ksh.53, 000, an external hard drive estimated at Ksh.15, 000 and rubber shoes valued at Ksh.1, 500 among other items that they had allegedly robbed from a Kilimani resident at gunpoint last week.

Police are looking for the Kangemi High School student who escaped.
