EMMANUEL MWENERA in ARUSHA Daily News; Wednesday,June 18, 2008 @18:03 Police in Arusha region are holding a woman for allegedly providing fake birth and academic certificates to 13 youth who applied for the recently advertised employment opportunities in the police. Speaking to journalists today, Arusha Regional Police Commander, Mr Basilio Matei, said the suspect, Elizabeth Mcharu (39), was arrested after the recruited youth named her as the person who allegedly prepared their certificates. He named the youth as Onesmo Fredrick (21), Seleman Jirion (20), Tadeus Keto (25), Charles Komba (22), Isack Mgeni(20), Mustafa Abdul, alias Munga (20), Dominick Emmanuel (20), Moses Siame (20), Deogratius Silvanus (20), Baraka Simon (21) and Hamis Hasan (22). Mr Matei said 11 suspects were in police custody, while two others managed to escape and police were hunting for them. The RPC said one of the forged certificates carried an invalid serial number S.0428/58 and Certificate Number 148933 dated March 28, 1991 showing the candidate received his secondary education from Mpechi Secondary School while it was not true. The woman declared that she was innocent as some people had misused her shop irresponsibly to prepare the fake papers. Police are still interrogating her. Meanwhile, one of the passengers who were injured in an accident that occurred along the Arusha-Moshi highway last week near Nduruma River has died. The RPC named the deceased as Joseph Msuya (54).
