According to the anti-graft agency, salaries paid to public servants using fake academic papers are being sought after for recovery.
In order to obtain their positions or advance to senior positions, too many public employees, according to the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission, have falsified academic papers.
However, it is actively looking into unidentified people and will demand that they return any money they have taken from the public.
As some politicians compete to get on the ballot in the general election next month, the issue of fake academic papers has been in the news for weeks.
Higher education institutions have already raised awareness of the issue of academic paper fraud in the nation as a means of getting a job or a promotion.
For instance, 169 undergraduate degrees obtained by students who registered in a college with its headquarters in Eldoret were detected as fake last month by Kisumu-based Great Lakes University (GLUK).
