The Uganda National Examinations Board is investigating reports that 20 people bought Primary Leaving Examination papers ahead of this year’s final exams slated to kick off in November this year. UNEB has clarified that the papers that were bought were fake since they have not yet printed this year’s final examinations and what the suspects were selling were actually copies of the district mock examinations.
Police yesterday arrested five people over the sale of the exams in Mubende district. According to James Taryatemba, the manager of examinations at the Uganda National Examination Board (UNEB), the four men and one woman were using social media and text messages to sell the materials at the cost of one million shillings per subject.
Police said that the suspects who include primary school teachers, and a nurse will all be charged with forgery and computer misuse since they were using electronic media.
