A director of St. Mary’s Secondary School in Mbale City is cooling off at Mbale Central Police Station for allegedly issuing fake UNEB results to former students.
According to Rogers Taitika, the Elgon region police spokesperson, they arrested Owino over the weekend for issuing students with fabricated results of the Uganda Certificate of Education (UCE) and Uganda Advanced Certificate of Education (UACE).
Owino was arrested following a tip-off from a concerned parent who claimed Owino had asked for sh1 million in exchange for genuine results.
Taitika says that the police are actively searching for the other two school directors involved in the case.
The 2022 UCE and UACE results for the school are said to have been withheld by the Uganda National Examinations Board (UNEB) due to the school’s alleged failure to pay the required examination fees.
The suspect is still detained at Mbale central police station .
