Kapsaret Member of Parliament Oscar Sudi suffered a huge blow after failing to stop his court case, where he is charged with forgery of his academic certificates in 2013 as he sought clearance from IEBC to run for the Kapsaret parliamentary seat. According to the ruling, the court of appeal judges cited lack of jurisdiction powers to order a magistrate's court to stop hearing the criminal case. The three judges Asike Makhandia, Wanjiru Karanja and William Ouko noted that the Mp was challenging the constitutionality of the charges but not the criminal case.[Photo courtesy]

The Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission argued that more than 14 witnesses had testified in the criminal case which was halfway heard and therefore making it difficult to stop the case. Sudi's lawyers have not commented on the ruling as they seem to have been sent back to the drawing board after they failed to stop the case for the second time following a ruling by High Court judge, Justice Hedwig Ong’udi.
