Police recruit charged with forgery

26 July 2013, 11:26 Wangui Joseph

A police recruit was on Thursday arraigned in a Nyeri court charged with using forged academic documents to gain admission to a police college.

The court heard that Nemwel Nyagaka Kibagendi knowingly presented a forged Kenya Certificate of Secondary Examination (KCSE) certificate to Kiganjo police training college during admission.

He is alleged to have committed the offence on February 20, 2013 at the college that is located in Nyeri County purporting himself to be Dennis Nyaore Ombwongi.

The prosecution, Inspector Eunice Maingi, alleged that the accused presented the forged academic documents to a recruitment officer, Martin Fwamba, at the college purporting them to be genuine and belonging to him.

He however denied the charges before Chief Magistrate Wilbrodah Juma and was released on a bond of KES 200 000.

The hearing of the case was set for August 22 after the magistrate declined the recruit's request to be released on a cash bail.

She said that most accused persons who had been released on cash bail ended up escaping and never turned up in court again.
