A teacher from Tulwopng’etuny Primary School where Kapseret Member of Parliament Oscar Sudi allegedly went to school has told the Anti-Corruption court that Sudi was a student at the school but under a different name.

Simon Cherop had testified before but was recalled by the defense for cross-examination.

According to Cherop, he taught Oscar Sudi for two years in class six and seven.

Cherop told trial magistrate Felix Kombo that a pupil was admitted in the school in 1995 by the name Kipchumba Kipletich. 

“It is still Sudi, just change of name,” the teacher testified. 

The teacher added that the officer who recorded his statement was interested in confirming that Oscar Sudi was not a pupil at the said school even though he had told him that he was a student.

“I was called by the headmaster to come and meet three people but I can not recall their names apart from one,” Cherop said.


An admission book No.770 was used to confirm that the MP attended the said school.

However, the teacher said Sudi did not complete his studies at the said school. He said that after class seven, he does not know where Sudi went nor the secondary school he attended.
