Dennis Okari is back. His investigative series were a must watch before he left for the BBC, and he has stepped up his game upon returning to NTV.
On Sunday night, he brought us ‘Certificates of Doom’, some brilliant investigative work exposing how easy it is to get fake university documents,
He centered his investigation around Nairobi Aviation College. An undercover ‘student’ was able to enroll for an Engineering course despite explaining to the front office lady that he is a Std 6 dropout who can barely read or write.
Such a course requires a minimum grade of C in KCSE, and this is a guy who did not even seat for KCPE. Another undercover ‘student’ was able to bribe a lecturer into receiving a certificate for only Sh4000.
A few lecturers also admitted to doing a shoddy job.
Though I believe Dennis should not have solely focused on Nairobi Aviation, it was an eye opener. It will also be interesting to watch what happens next from the government and employers. More interesting in that some journalists at Nation Media are actually graduates of Nairobi Aviation.
Here’s the video.
