Governor Ayacko Discloses HR Audit Findings: 290 Migori County Employees with Fake Credentials

The County Government of Migori has disclosed a portion of a Human Resources audit overseen by Governor Ochilo Ayacko.

Governor Ayacko, on Thursday, May 16, shared that the county had approximately 290 employees possessing irregular or counterfeit academic certificates.

Various certificates scrutinized include the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE), the Certificate of Primary Education (CPE), the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE), and the Kenya Certificate of Education (KCE).

He stressed that the identities of the implicated employees would not be revealed until a thorough investigation is conducted to prevent legal action.

Ayacko clarified that the findings would be submitted to the board on Friday for further examination.

“As per the report, a total of 290 county employees lack the necessary academic qualifications,” he declared.

The Governor also disclosed that the mentioned certificates were forwarded to the Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC), which verified that 93 documents were fraudulent, while the rest required additional scrutiny.

He mentioned that subsequent audits would encompass tertiary academic records to identify employees circumventing the system to secure employment.

Significantly, the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) has alerted government officials and employees holding counterfeit academic credentials.

In February, the Public Service Commission (PSC) expressed concerns that individuals with fake certificates were resigning to evade arrest by EACC. Some employees possessing these documents also sought early retirement.

In March, EACC CEO Twalib Mbarak instructed an immediate cessation of salary disbursements to any civil servant with falsified papers. This directive followed the PSC’s report indicating government bodies with the highest instances of counterfeit documents.

“To this effect, the Commission advises that all accounting/authorized officers refrain from processing benefits,” he mandated.
