How Bomet Graduate's Certificates were Stolen, Used to Secure Top County Job for Another Person

The family of Winnie Chepkemoi is calling on the Directorate of Criminal Investigations to launch an inquiry into a case where they claim their daughter's ( Winnie Chepkemoi ) Diploma Certificate in Business Administration was stollen and used to secure a top county job for a person with the same name.

Her mother who is a retired teacher says that her neighbor and a former student approached her asking about he daughter's education. "I told him that he studied Business Administration. He then said that a lot of jobs were available in the County Government for people with such qualifications," says Chepkemoi's mother.

The neighbor asked for the certificates then volunteered to link Chepkemoi to a county job in Bomet. "After two weeks, he returned the original certificates not knowing that he had photocopied them," says the Winnie's mother.

The family later later learnt that the man gave the certificates to his cousin who happened to share the same name with their daughter. She went on and used the certificate to get a well paying job in the county government of Bomet.

Winnie Chepkemoi ( 2 ) who is being accused of stealing the certificates has a different story. She says she bought the certificates at three hundred thousand shillings. "The family has decided to accuse me of stealing the certificate since I failed to pay them the remaining amount of money," she said. When contacted, Bomet County Governor admitted that three such cases have been reported in the county and investigations are underway.
