"Kimeumana" High Court Shocks Troubled Oscar Sudi Over His Plea

Oscar Sudi lost bid to halt his prosecution over Allegedly forging academic certificates. According the Standard, the court yesterday dismissed the Kapseret member of Parliament's plea. The high court released a statement stating that it had no power to order the chief magistrate’s court to halt hearing the criminal offence.

The lawyers noted that the MP does not seem to challenge the criminal allegations but was aggrieved concerning the constitutional charges.

“The said criminal proceedings are not the subject of the appeal before this court. It is discernible from the notice of appeal dated August 10, 2017, as well as the draft memorandum of appeal annexed to the motion, that the subject of the appeal is the High Court’s judgment dated July 24, 2017, which dismissed the applicant’s constitutional petition. As such, we have no jurisdiction to stay the criminal proceedings in the chief magistrate’s court,” they ruled

The ruling spills bad news for Kapseret MP as he will have to bear the consequences of his actions.
