Eastleigh: Six suspects arrested for printing fake gov’t documents

In Summary

  • DCI says, “Developing fake papers for unknown people whose intentions are unclear is not only illegal but immoral.”
  • The suspects are currently being grilled at DCI headquarters, before being arraigned in court on Thursday.

Six suspects were on Tuesday night arrested in Eastleigh, Nairobi County, for printing fake government documents.

The six, believed to be part of a criminal syndicate involved in the illegal business, were arrested following a raid by DCI detectives on First Avenue and 3rd Avenue.

The sleuths, acting on intelligence received from the public, raided the office and recovered a bunch of fake documents that had been processed illegally. Among the documents included national identification cards, refugee registration documents, and academic certificates.

Also recovered were computers used for the development of the fake papers.

Some of the fake documents recovered by DCI detectives when they raided an office in Eastleigh, Nairobi County.

“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,” says the DCI.

The suspects are currently being grilled at DCI headquarters, before being arraigned in court on Thursday.

The DCI is cautioning Kenyans against engaging in this kind of trade, adding that “their actions pose a very serious threat to the public safety and security of 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 jealously against any form of evil, through providing information,” concludes the DCI.
