Forgery case against MP Oscar Sudi to be heard physically in September


The Anti-Corruption Court has ruled that the forgery case against Kapseret Member of Parliament Oscar Sudi will be heard physically on 15th September 2021.

Trial Magistrate Felix Kombo directed that the accused be present in court during the hearing.

The MP is charged with nine counts of forgery for allegedly presenting forged academic papers to the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission to be cleared to vie for his seat in 2013.

The court heard that the MP, with the intent to deceive, forged a diploma certificate in business management, purporting that it had been issued by the Kenya Institute of Management (KIM).

The lawmaker is also charged with forging a KCSE certificate from Highway High school and several other counts of giving false information to an IEBC officer and lying to the electoral body and the EACC.
