A Kenyan MP who is accused of forging his academic papers did not sit his final year exams at the secondary school he claims to have attended, an ex-teacher has told a court. The MP, Oscar Sudi, had said that he sat the exams at Highway Secondary School in 2006.
But the school’s former principal said the index number Mr Sudi said was his belonged to another student, adding the MP did not register or sit the examination at the school. The MP has been charged with forging a diploma certificate and a secondary school certificate. He denies the charges and is out on bail.
According to Kenya’s Standard newspaper, the alleged forgeries date back to when he was seeking clearance for election in 2013 when the law required parliamentary aspirants to show proof of post-secondary school education.
The hearing of the case continues.
