“Ten recruits who used fake academic documents to be enlisted as Police Constables in the National Police Service (NPS) have been arrested while undergoing training and their courses terminated with immediate effect.

This was after the region’s premier police training institution, the National Police College Main Campus-Kiganjo, conducted due diligence on the authenticity of the recruits’ academic documents and discovered the high level forgery.

A report forwarded to the college by the Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC) declared their Kenya Certificate of Secondary School Education documents presented by the recruits as forged.

Investigations into their forged certificates indicated that some subject grades and mean grades had been deliberately altered to match the needed minimum requirements for joining the service.” Said DCI

The ten, namely Mochama Opiyo Clive, Muithi John Kitavi, Natembea M. Kelvin, Nyapola Felix Angatia, Mwaulid Galgalo Bide, Gobra Grindguest, Ndambuki Irene Nzisa, Felix Kipkoech Langat, Kabatha Paul Kimani and John Crispus Amisi have since been arrested and their training halted.

“They are currently cooling their heels at Kiganjo police station pending arraignment for forgery and other relevant charges.” Said DCI
