40 Job applicants snub probe into forgery and falsification of their academic documents

By Our Reporter

A total of 40 job applicants at Kasese District Local Government have snubbed a probe by the district service commission into forgery and falsification of academic documents.

The commission had invited 42 candidates to defend the authenticity of academic documents that they claimed to have gotten from various higher institutions of learning.

Clarence Bwambale the acting secretary to the District Service Commission says the persons whose documents were in question were mainly those who had applied for the positions of parish chief and town agent that the district recently advertised.

Bwambale says the intent of the commission sitting was to give a fair hearing to candidates whose documents had been denied by institutions they claimed to have studied.

According to Bwambale the institutions that have since participated in the verification exercise are African Ark College of Management Sciences, Liberty College of Management and Journalism Studies and Uganda Pentecostal University.

He adds, however, that the commission has also set aside tomorrow Friday to any applicant that was associated with forged documents to make their case adding that this is being done in the interest of natural justice to the accused persons.

He reveals that if any candidate doesn’t turn up to defend their documents will automatically forfeit their application to the next oral interviews even if they had passed the aptitude test before they are forwarded to the relevant authorities to answer to charges of forgery and falsification of documents. Bwambale appeals to the people of Kasese to desist from forging documents and urges them to utilize the schools within reach to further their studies.
