Student arrested bribing for fake birth certificate

06 November 2013, 18:35 Wilshere

Nakuru - A form three Ugandan girl was on Wednesday morning arrested by the assistant chief of Langa Langa estate in Nakuru as she attempted to acquire a fake birth certificate.

According to the assistant chief, George Nga’nga, the girl visited his office seeking a letter to allow her to obtain the birth certificate from Nakuru County births and deaths registration office in the town.

Nga’nga said that he discovered the girl was lying to him after she attempted to bribe the chief, and that’s when she was arrested and taken to Bondeni police station.

He further said that the school girl has been attending school at Bishop Muraithi Secondary School at Langa Langa estate for the last one week before she was discovered.

While defending herself during the arrest, the young girl told the assistant chief that she was an orphan living with a friend at race track estate.

However, the Principal of Muraithi school, Franklin Mwangi, distanced himself from the student saying she was attending only tuition classes at the school.

Mwangi said that the school administration had requested the girl to provide her past school certificates to the head teacher before the end of last week in order to continue taking classes there, which she has not yet provided so far.

“Initially, this girl wanted to join our school but she claimed her aunt was going to bring the papers before the end of the week and that’s why I allowed her to attend the classes while we wait for her credentials,” he said.
