Employees Found With Fake Academic Papers Will Henceforth Be Required to Repay Salary For Period Worked

The Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) has expressed concern about the employment of individuals using fraudulent academic documents.

Bishop David Oginde, the chairman of EACC, addressed the matter in Kisumu on Monday, emphasizing that the prevalence of fake certificates is undermining the progress achieved in the education sector.

Bishop Oginde cautioned individuals in Kenya who secure employment through counterfeit credentials, stating that legal consequences will follow, including the requirement to repay monthly salaries, forfeit assets, and return resources earned during the period of employment.

“We will have to recover all the money you got through that process, even if you worked 20 years, we will want all the money you earned during that time,” Bishop Oginde said.

Regarding land grabbing, the EACC chair noted a disturbingly high rate of reported incidents and affirmed that the commission is actively monitoring the situation.

He mentioned that measures have been implemented to put an end to this issue.

Bishop Oginde made these remarks following a courtesy call on Kisumu Governor Anyang Nyong’o.

He highlighted that in Kisumu, the EACC is collaborating closely with the county government to facilitate the lawful reversal of public land that has been unlawfully taken through a legal process.

“We want to see a situation where Kenyans own property that is rightfully theirs,” added Oginde.
