Recruits Detained For Using Forged Certificates During Police Recruitment

In Kiganjo, Nyeri County, ten National Police College recruits were detained for fabricating Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) certificates.

The ten police recruits were arrested on Wednesday for allegedly using forged KCSE certificates to gain admission to the force three months ago.

The suspects' documents were sent to the Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC) for verification where they were found to be fake.

The trainees were arrested and detained at the Kiganjo Police Station for forgery.

“The recruits were arrested after the college administration forwarded the certificates to Knec for verification and authentication,” a National Police Service report said.

“All the certificates, some subject grades and all mean grades have been altered. [The suspects] were all booked at the station and placed in custody pending investigation to face relevant forgery charges in court,” the police said.

The ten trainees who lost their positions on grounds of forgery were among the 5,000 recruited in March.

The Nyeri Central Directorate of Criminal Investigations is investigating the matter.
