THE Police is investigating the Uganda National Examinations Board (UNEB) over alleged leakage of examinations.
Police spokesman Edward Ochom yesterday said, “We cannot rule out the fact that people from UNEB could have given out the papers. Those were the examinations the students were supposed to sit for,” he said.
The probe follows the arrest of five people suspected to have been leaking examinations to students in various schools.
Among those arrested was Mawumu, a student of Light College Katikamu, who allegedly had History and Mathematics papers.
“Someone must have leaked the papers to him,” Ochom said, but would not tell if Mawumu was in custody or not.
The New Vision could, however, not confirm whether the papers were genuine.
Three of the suspects have since appeared at Kampala City Council Court on forgery charges.
Asked how widespread the problem was, Ochom said, “Some schools could have been involved.”
UNEB spokesperson Eva Konde said, “I cannot comment right now but those people should tell Police how they got the examination papers.”
In a related development, a man who has been forging Makarere University transcripts has been arrested. John Mawejje has a secretarial bureau in Wandegeya, a city suburb. Ochom said Mawejje had been on the Police’s most wanted list.
