Police recruit charged with forgery
11 March 2013, 16:51
A young man on Monday denied forgery and altering of document charges at a Nyeri court before Chief Magistrate Wilbroadah Juma.
Badir Yassin Mohammed was charged that on February 7, 2013 at Kenya Police College Kiganjo with intent to deceive he forged a Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) certificate.
He was purporting it to be a genuine certificate issued by Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC).
The accused person was also impeached of altering and issuing a false document. The court heard that Badir knowingly altered the KCSE certificate and issued it to Corporal Peter Kinyua purporting it to be genuine.
Yassin joined the disciplined force during the recent police recruitment that took place early November last year.
His training was cut short after the college officers knew he had used cornered methods to join the force.
He was however released on a bond term of KES 100 000 and a surety of similar amount.
The case was slated to proceed on March 15, 2013.
