Kapseret MP Oscar Sudi come out to hit back at critics who have been attacking for allegedly lucking credible academic papers.

Taking to his social media, Sudi asked his critics to stop focusing on his academic papers and should focus on the major issues.

He challenged those with higher academic qualifications to ask themselves how their papers are helping them in life.

"I see a lot busybodies bragging over their Degrees. They claim that I didn't go to school and the authenticity of certificates are questionable. My friend look at yourself first, see if you have a plan with your life.

"Ask yourself what the academic papers you have have helped you with. Have the papers help you put food on the table for your kids or even educate them?" Sudi asked.

Sudi further asked critics to go easy on his case as it is before the court right now. He said that at the moment, it is the time for the government to put claims before the court and when his time comes, he will defend himself.

"Every court has its way of doing things, at the moment its is focusing on the issues from the government's side. I am yet to defend myself as the case still has a long way to go," Sudi said.

Sudi's statement comes a day after a witness told the court that his academic papers were forged.

John Matsheshe, a former Head of Examinations at the Kenya Institute of Management (KIM) told the Anti Corruption Court that the Kapsaret MP was never their student and that the Diploma certificate in question belongs to Elkanah K. Kimutai, a former student of the institute. 

While testifying in the ongoing hearing of the forgery case, he further revealed that an admission number captured in a copy of the certificate presented to the Ethics and Anti Corruption Commission belonged to a woman who was a student at the institution in 2005. 

“The admission number NRB/20879 belongs to Scholastica Achieng Odhiambo of Diploma in Management of NGOs .The student was registered in 2005,” John said.

Despite the allegations, Sudi has maintained that he will prove that the allegations are not true. He further revealed that whether the good deem his academic papers to be valid or not, he will continue serving his people and will vie in the next general elections.
