JINJA, UGANDA: Two Senior Four candidates have been arrested in Jinja city after they were allegedly found having carnal knowledge with each other in a guest house.

The unnamed students are part of the students to be briefed tomorrow ahead of their Uganda Certificate of Education (UCE) exams that kick off next Monday.

According to Kiira Region Police Spokesman Mr James Mubi, the management of the unnamed school has been summoned along with managers of the guest house and the parents of the two students (a male young adult and a female minor) to explain the incident.

“We have summoned school management, guest house managers and parents. Cautioned all of them,” said Mr. Mubi.

The two students have also been cautioned and released to sit for their examinations which start on Monday, October 17 next week.

In a related development, Uganda National Examinations Board (UNEB) has warned all schools and candidates against malpractice ahead Uganda Certificate of Education (UCE) Examinations which will officially start on Friday October 14, 2022 with the briefing of candidates.

Addressing journalists at the Uganda Media Center on Thursday, Dan N Odongo, the UNEB Executive Secretary, said during the Friday students’ briefing session, candidates must be made aware of the instructions contained in the timetable and the Rules and Regulations on examination conduct.

Odongo noted that head teachers must explain clearly to the candidates the consequences of their not adhering to these rules and regulations, and of cheating in the examination.

He revealed that UNEB found out that cases of irregularities and malpractice by candidates quite often arise from candidates receiving inadequate or no briefing at all.

He revealed that the Board is partnering with various security agencies as well as contracted professionals and Heads of Centres in the conduct of this examination.

“The Board will deploy 1,595 security officers, 1,611 scouts and 22,214 supervisors and invigilators. While high levels of integrity are expected from those we are working with, UNEB strongly warns against involvement in any form of examination malpractice. Anyone found culpable will be dealt with in accordance with the provisions of the UNEB Act 2021, which will be in force from this examination onwards; and the penalties are quite stiff,”
