Child impersonated in UCE exam room caught by mother | Rare Techy
To the question of whether parents can see their love for their child taking the test for them, the answer is: Yes, they can.
This was proved by a parent who was arrested for entering the examination room while attempting to sit the Uganda Certificate of Education (UCE) examination for their child.
Uganda National Examinations Board (UNEB) spokesperson Jennifer Kalule disclosed on Monday that the parent has been dragged to court over the matter.
Kalule, who did not give the woman’s name, said she was trapped at Kawembe Standard Secondary School.
According to Kalule, impersonation is the number one cause of examination malpractice cases related to UCE and Primary Leave examinations.
Other misdemeanor cases registered include aiding or abetting candidates to crack exams.
“We are warning against indulging in examination irregularities. Anyone found guilty will be dealt with according to the provisions of the UNEB Act 2021,” Kalule said.
She was speaking to journalists at the joint security weekly briefing at the Uganda Police Force headquarters in Nagor, Kampala.
Kalule said he had so far received two convictions at the Nabweru Magistrate’s Court for two separate cases of impersonation in previous UCE examinations.
As many as eight other cases related to impersonation and aiding or abetting examination malpractice are pending before the court.
