Kapseret MP Oscar Sudi has on Wednesday, October 27, broken his silence after reports about discrepancies in his academic credentials rocked social media.
Sudi claims that certain quarters are prosecuting his case in the court of public opinion instead of allowing the court process to take its due course.
The embattled lawmaker stated that he will align 50 witnesses to prove his case against the prosecution. He also took a swipe at select media houses for biasedly covering his story.
He claims that the media outlets are controlled by a shadowy organization hell-bent on assassinating his character.
“I have seen busybodies prosecuting my case in the court of public opinion. Why can’t they wait for the court process to takes it’s course?….When it’s my turn I will align over 50 witnesses on my side.
“We all know who owns Nation, Standard Digital , Citizen TV Kenya and The Star Kenya and even know those who control the KNEC. They should stop peddling lies around my case,” he posted.
During an appearance in court, a KNEC official claimed that Sudi did not register or sit for the 2006 KCSE examination at Highway Secondary School in Nairobi.
She confirmed to the trial court that the index number 401006/081 of the year 2006 in the forged KCSE certificate did not belong to Highway Secondary school but to Parklands Secondary School.
She also stated that the index number belonged to one Obaje Bob Onyango.
In a separate testimony about Sudi’s tertiary education credentials, the court was told that that the Kapseret MP’s Diploma certificate and admission number belong to two different people.
John Matsheshe, a former Head of Examinations at the Kenya Institute of Management (KIM) also 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.
