The Public Service Commission on Tuesday revealed the most common types of forgeries on academic certificates by officers.
Alteration of KCSE mean grades emerged as the most common type of forgery.
Forged KCSE certificates were also listed as a common type of forgery where–alleged candidates did not sit for exams but produced certificates required for appointment/employment.
There were also fake certificates where submitted certificates were disowned altogether by the alleged issuing learning institutions.
"Alleged candidates confirmed as not ever registered in the institutions alleged to have issued certificates," read the report.
The revelations were made by PSC chairperson Anthony Muchiri during a media briefing.
Present at the briefing were EACC chairperson David Oginde, CEO Twalib Mbarak and DCI boss Mohamed Amin.
Going further, another type of forgery listed was whereby the certificate number of the submitted certificate does not belong to the alleged owner.
Faked names on the certificate in question, where the culprit's name is different from the real owners of the produced certificates are also listed.
"Alleged candidates established to have never sat the alleged examination or registered as candidates," read the report.
Some bachelors degree certificates second division (lower) were also found to have been altered to reflect the Second Division (upper).
PSC recommended that all cases should be referred to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations for prosecution and recovery of money and assets gained from the fraudulent positions.
The commission also wants all persons of interest to be denied any form of benefits including pensions, allowances or leave.
The report has been handed over to DCI and the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission for further action.
