Former Highway Secondary School principal Patrick Maritim on Thursday testified against Cape Town MP Oscar Sudi, saying the legislature had not written the KCSE exams at the school in 2006 as he claimed.
In a case where a lawyer is accused of forging test papers, Maritim told the court that the 2006 registration record did not reflect Sudi's registered name as a student there.
"According to the records, Sudi did not write the KCSE exams ... Oscar Sudi's name does not appear anywhere," said Maritim.
Although the Member of Parliament passed a second consecutive term that he was unwell but the case remained the case.
On Wednesday, the court was told that Sudi was absent and had traveled to Turkey for medical treatment, but Magistrate Felix Kombo ordered his lawyers to testify
However, the court ruled that the evidence presented by the legislature in support of the case did not reflect the details of the Turkish hospital where Sudi was being treated.
Lawyers on Thursday told the court that Sudi was indeed in Eldoret as he allegedly missed the flight.
Sudi faces charges of fraudulent Diploma Certificate in Business Management obtained from Kenya Institute of Management (KIM) and KCSE certificate for allegedly failing exams at Highway Secondary School in Nairobi.3983
