Eighteen police recruits charged with fraud

13 June 2013, 20:26 Wangui Joseph

A group of 18 police recruits who were training at Kenya Police College Kiganjo were on Wednesday arraigned in a Nyeri court facing charges of making documents without authority.

They were charged with making Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) certificates purporting them to be genuine and issued by Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC).

The court heard that on different dates and years between 2007 and 2013 at unknown places in Kenya, they made the documents which were intended to deceive or defraud.

The recruits were also charged with uttering false documents knowingly and fraudulently to the college corporals during recruitment.

However, they all denied the charges before acting Senior Resident Magistrate Christine Wekesa. The magistrate released them on a bond term of KES 200 000 each with a surety of similar amount or a cash bail of KES 100 000.

The accused persons have now been dismissed from the college by Kenya National Police Service; they had undergone training since November last year.

The magistrate slated the case to be mentioned on June 25 with hearings to proceed from July 16 and 25, 2013.
