Eight students of Ambira High School who were arrested for alleging they had stolen the KCSE examination have been released.
They were freed on Monday by an Ukwala court for lack of evidence.
The judge told the students with identity cards to leave them at Ugunja police station. Those who did not have IDs were asked to leave their parents’ or guardian’s phone numbers.
The prosecutor said even though the students had been released, investigations on alleged exam cheating will continue.
The students were arrested on Monday last week after appearing in a video boasting about how they stole the examination.
