Kapseret member of parliament Oscar Sudi is a man under siege and may go down anytime if his fake academic certificates case goes through.
According to Chief magistrate Felix Kombo, the case is set to be heard on October 26th 2021 since it has dragged on for almost four years.
“I’m under pressure to conclude these cases which have been pending for over four years,” said the judge.
As a result, chief magistrate Felix Kombo ruled that the case will be determined for five days beginning from October 26th, October 27th, October 28th, November 16th, and November 17th 2021.
Apparently, Oscar Sudi who is a very close ally of deputy president William Samoei Ruto is facing several charges of forgery and uttering a fake document.
Nairobinews reported that the magistrate fixed the fresh dates after the case again failed to take off following the indisposition of Keter’s lawyer Thomas Ruto.
“Allowing the plea to take a fresh date, Kombo noted that Ruto has been attending court all through and he should be indulged since he is unwell.” Quoted Nairobinews.
However, the Kapseret member of parliament Oscar Sudi denied the offenses while blaming his political detractors.
He was accused of forging a number of documents amongst them, a Business Management Diploma Certificate from the Kenya Institute of Management (KIM), a School leaving certificate of Highway High School, which include forging a Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE).
These charges may just complicate Sudi’s political life at a time when he is planning to contest for the third term in 2022. Shall the Kapseret legislator go down then the second in command will have lost one of those ardent political soldiers.
In the meantime, the legislator who is serving his second term denied the charges and was released on bond.
