Confirming the incident was Eldoret South police boss Wilson Abduba who said that the hunt is on for ten more suspects involved in the ring.

The arrest comes a month after Education CS Amina Mohammed said that there are cartels that are pocketing millions of shillings from printing fake papers.

A stern warning was also sent to anyone who will be caught engaging in the illegal business.Parents were not spared either as they were pointed out as promoters of the trade as they pay for their children to get such papers.

At the same time, there is an audit underway in North Rift where employees are suspected to be holding fake certificates.
