End Of The Road For Two Witty Nairobi Women Who Faked Academic Certificates To Get Top Jobs

Two Nairobi women have landed themselves in trouble after they were found guilty of forging academic certificates to gain employment.

Pauline Otieno and Lilian Ochieng, the suspects, were found guilty of having made fake procurement certificates from MKU and the Kenya Institute of Supplies Management (KISM) respectively to acquire employment at the Rural Electrification and Renewable Energy Corporation back in 2018.

Pauline was sentenced two and half years in jail or a fine Ksh 228,698 and Lilian three year jail term or a Ksh 271,901 fine.

In addition, the two have been ordered to refund all the salaries paid to them over the period they had been employed.

According to EACC, the two women were working in the named firm as casual labourers for eight years before opting to fake the academic certificates in order to get the top jobs once they were advertised.

Things however went South for them when their colleague spilled the beans on how they acquired the certificates making the police to launch a probe on them. We hope that justice will soon be served so that such an incident doesn't reoccur in the future.
