The prosecution teaming up with Immigration brought in Ahmed Muhammed Omar on a stranger than fiction charge of forgery, and was convicted on his own plea of “guilty.”

Omar was then ordered to pay a fine or spend three months in jail for the offence.

He was charged with presenting two forged death certificates on April 25 2017 to Immigration department at Nyayo house, Nairobi to facilitate a work permit.

Biological parents

The court heard that he is a Kenyan holder of Id no. 35558249 and committed the offence while applying for  Kenyan passport.

He pleaded guilty to presenting forged death certificates under the names of Mohamud Omar Hared and Halima Abdi Muhammed “purporting them to be genuine certificates of death belonging to his biological parents.”

After pleading guilty to the charge, the man was ordered to pay a fine of Ksh50,000.

Chief magistrate Francis Andayi gave the suspect 14 days to appeal the sentence.
