A top human resource manager at a state agency has been presented to court over charges of forging academic certificates.
Irene Chesang of Kenya Rural Electrification Authority was accused of forging a bachelor’s degree from United States International University (USIU).
She was presented before Milimani Anti-Corruption Chief Magistrate Douglas Ogoti but did not plead to the charges as she was directed to plead to the charges next week after she became emotional before the charges were read to her.
Chesang is accused that on an unknown date and place, with intent to deceive, she made a bachelor of science in International business administration degree certificate, purporting it to be genuine issued to her by USIU on June 17, 2000 a fact she knew was false.
She further faces charges of forging a form four certificate from Solian Girls High School purporting it to be a genuine certificate issued by the Kenya National Examination Council. She claimed she got a B-, yet she knew it was false.
She is also facing charges of forging exemption letter dated June 29, 2008 purporting it to be genuine issued by Kenya Accountant and Secretaries National examination board.
The HR manager is also accused of uttering fake transcripts from UISU purporting them to be genuine.
She will be back to court on Tuesday.
