Mass employment scandal hits Kenyan Parliament: Dozens suspected of using fake academic certificates

It has been alleged by sources to the Sunday Nation that two individuals have been identified by the human resources department as submitting fake papers.

However, other sources have suggested that the number may be as high as 50, with verification still ongoing. This scrutiny comes as a result of the mass employment of over 300 officers by the Parliamentary Service Commission (PSC) last year, including committee clerks, legal officers, secretaries, and accountants.

The PSC had included a requirement in the letter of offer that confirmation of employment would only occur following the verification of academic documents and performance appraisal. The exercise is expected to be concluded next week.

The repercussions for forging academic documents are severe, as it is a felony punishable by up to three years imprisonment.

This comes as the Kenya National Qualifications Authority director-general had previously told Parliament that about 30% of academic certificates in Kenya are either fake, falsified, or tampered with.

Misrepresentation of qualifications can result in instant dismissal, in addition to potential criminal charges. The PSC has not yet commented on the situation.
