A Cameroonian couple posing as medical doctors has today been charged with using forged diplomatic passports at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA).

Arnold Sahdeu Fosting and Honorine Djueche appeared at the Milimani Law Courts on Tuesday, November 17, where they were charged with being in possession of forged Cameroonian passports while attempting to exit Kenya to Italy via Doha.

They were also charged with being unlawfully present in the country after the invalidation of their visa over the alleged forged passport.

Through their lawyer, Gregg Ndege, the couple pleaded guilty to knowingly using forged documents but pleaded for leniency.

Nairobi Chief Magistrate Martha Mutuku slapped the duo with Sh40,000 fine each or in default to serve six months in prison.

If they pay the court fine or serve jail term in default, the couple will be repatriated back to Cameroon.
