A dramatic bizarre incident was witnessed on Wednesday, April 8, at Karigu-ini Mixed Secondary School in Lari Sub County, Kiambu County after Christopher Njoroge Ng’ang’a, a form four student taking part in the ongoing Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (K.C.S.E) exams, engaged police officers and teachers in a heated brawl.
The drama unfolded after K.C.S.E supervisor Mr. Gilbert Kilonzo Munyao approached the student, who was also not wearing a face mask, to frisk him shortly before the commencement of Christian Religious Education (C.R.E) paper 1 examination.
Reporting about the incident, Lennah Laurence, one of the police officers who were deployed at the center to provide security during the exam period, said she was forced to intervene after seeing the male student’s persistent refusal to cooperate with the supervisor.
Despite the intervention, Laurence added that her efforts were halted after he remained adamant, even going ahead to confront her physically and verbally. This forced the other officer, who heard the students shouting abusive words, to intervene.
When the officer intervened, detecting that he is going to be overpowered and maybe arrested, Christopher dashed out of the examination room, picked a stone and hit the windscreen of the police land cruiser. He then vanished into the neighborhood, missing the C.R.E exam.
“When the other police officer came to intervene, the said student ran out of the exam room, picked a stone and hit the windscreen of a police land cruiser. The said student then varnished in the neighborhood without writting C.R.E paper 1 exams… restored to normalcy and the other students continued with exams. Case PUI,” read a report shared on The Kenya Police Facebook account.
Teachers, police officers and invigilators later calmed the situation and allowed the rest of the students to proceed with their exam as earlier scheduled.
