MP Oscar Sudi did not sit for KCSE, witness disputes certificate

In Summary

  • MP Oscar Sudi has been accused of forging his diploma certificate from Kenya Institute of Management and KCSE certificate.
  • KNEC Secretary claims Sudi did not register or sit for exams at the school he allegedly registered in.

As the debate on academic qualifications for politicians gets louder, Kapseret MP Oscar Sudi could be in trouble for forging academic documents.

It appears that Sudi did not sit for the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) examination in 2006 as earlier purported.

During a Tuesday court hearing before Magistrate Felix Kombo, Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC) Secretary Nabiki ene Kashu claimed Sudi neither registered for examinations at Highway Secondary School in Nairobi, nor did he sit for them.

The legislator has been in court for allegedly forging a diploma certificate acquired from Kenya Institute of Management. Furthermore, the court has been looking into his KCSE documents, which Sudi purports were issued by KNEC.

“In the letter, we were asked to authenticate whether such a candidate sat his KCSE in the year 2006 at Highway Secondary School in Nairobi in November and awarded certificate serial number 3381074 under index 401006/081,” Kashu told the court.

Sudi’s Index Number

Their records apparently showed that Highway Secondary School was non-existent among those registered for KCSE in 2006, contrary to the MP’s certificate.

Serial number 401006 used reportedly belonged to Parklands Secondary School and not Highway Secondary School whose code is 401005.

Additionally, that the index number 401006/081 belonged to Obaje Bob Onyango, who was registered and sat for his KCSE at Parklands Secondary School.

“We also established that a candidate by the name Sudi did not appear in the 2006 Knec database for either Parklands Secondary School or Highway Secondary School,” Kashu added.

The witness who has been working at KNEC for the past 19 years, maintained that candidates cannot share index numbers.

“There is no possibility of two schools sharing a code number during a given examination.

“The purported copy of certificates presented to Knec for authentication purposes is obtained from a forged document,” The Star quotes her.
