‘Pilot’ who has been flying Kenyans for 8 years with forged papers

A man who has been working as a pilot for the last eight years was early this year charged for forging his academic papers. Ahmad Nassir Dirie Olow was charged with making a false KCSE certificate for the 2007 national exam and passing it as being from the Kenya National Examination Council.

According to the police report, Olow presented the false document to Lt. Col. Amin Ali, the head of training at Ninety Nines Flying School in Wilson Airport on July 30, 2011.

The court heard that Olow also uttered the certificate to Sergeant Cyrus Ikade on January 6, 2021, at the Anti-Terrorist Police Unit headquarters at Upper Hill, Nairobi.

The forged KCSE certificate showed that he got a strong B+ (Plus), while in reality he never got that grade. After making the forgery, he enrolled to a Kenyan aviation college, on the strength of the KCSE certificate and upon graduation, he received a certificate to show that he was qualified to fly a plane. Over the past eight years, Olow has been practicing this trade.
