A syndicate involved in the printing of fake government documents was busted by detectives yesterday in Eastleigh, Nairobi county.
Six suspects we arrested following the raid at an establishment on 1st avenue, 3rd street, where national identification cards, refugee registration documents, academic certificates and other documents were being processed illegally.
Acting on information received via our #FichuakwaDCI hotline, detectives from the Transnational Organized Crime Unit backed up by Cybercrime sleuths stormed the office and recovered a bunch of fake documents that had been illegally processed. Also recovered were computers used for the development of the fake papers.
Detectives have established that the syndicate is also involved in aiding the entry of aliens into the country, through processing of fake credentials for them. The suspects are currently being grilled by detectives at DCI headquarters, before being arraigned in court on Thursday.
The Directorate of Criminal Investigations cautions Kenyan’s engaged in this kind of trade that their actions pose a very serious threat to the public safety and security of their fellow Kenyans. Developing fake papers for unknown people whose intentions are unclear is not only illegal but immoral.
As we celebrate Mashujaa Day, we are reminded of our patriotic duty to join hands with our security forces, in guarding our nation jealousy against any form of evil, through providing information.

These was to earn someone a very lucrative NGO or A government job in somalia
Btw mbona mnafichanga sura za wengine zingine mnaexpose??? What’s the criteria of arriving to that decision?
The guy got excellent ways of earning through forgery which is illegal, but take a close look of his work, he got great potential of being a government printer if given opportunity to demonstrate his prowess, create job for Kenyans.
