EACC Exposes MP With Fake Education Certificates

A Member of Parliament has found himself on the wrong side of the law with the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission after a report revealed that he had lied to contest in the 2013 General Election.

According to EACC, Kapseret  MP Oscar Sudi presented fake certificates to the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission when he was seeking nomination to vie for the seat.

The Commission noted that Mr Sudi’s Diploma Certificate in Business Management and Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education certificate were forged.

The legislator is also accused of lying under oath to both the anti-graft body and the IEBC. “The MP uttered the said forged documents to IEBC and EACC with intentions to deceive the two commissions,” the report indicated.

The lawmaker’s alleged craftiness came to light in 2015 when EACC received information prompting it to initiate investigations.

EACC filed a case against Sudi to the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) to have him charged for providing false information and making a false statuary declaration contrary to the Constitution.

The DPP has accepted the recommendation by the commission.
