His paper got the attention of Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC) officials in Nairobi as they were preparing the exams for marking.

The magistrate on his case, Duncan Mtai, ruled that the boy should undergo a mental assessment before the hearing on Monday.  

The candidate who is facing treason charges is still in police custody.

Marking of the KCSE exam papers is expected to start on December 7 and end by December 18.
