A police recruit was on Monday arrested in Naivasha, Nakuru county after he allegedly used a pen to alter his Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) from straight E’s to straight B’s.
According to reports filed at the Nakuru’s Naivasha ward, the 24 year old suspect by the name John Mwangi completed his KCSE in 2019 but decided to interfere with his marks in order to earn high grades.
A keen look at the certificate reveals that John Mwangi scored straight E’s as follows: English E, Kiswahili E, Chemistry E, Mathematics E, Biology E, CRE E and Business E. As a result, the police recruit scored a Mean Grade of E.
However, John Mwangi could not stomach his pathetic grades and decided to be creative by altering the grades in a bid to portray himself in a better light, which saw him earn decent grades reflecting B- in CRE, B in Mathematics, B+ in English and B- in Kiswahili.
“He altered the certificate by use of a pen. He was arrested and placed in a cell waiting to be arraigned after completion of investigations,” read part of the police report.
