''Wamekua Wakinitesa Peke Yangu'' Sudi Speaks On Leaders With Questionable Degree

Oscar Sudi, a member of Parliament for Kapseret, has commented on rumors that multiple politicians are being investigated for the veracity of their academic works. On Saturday, the lawmaker complained to authorities about being "harassed" over his academic credentials, even though he is far from the only prominent figure with dubious diplomas.

Sudi, appearing joking, remarked that the academic paper issue has revealed that many leaders are just like him. During the same gathering, Sudi once again defended himself by declaring, "I'm learned." He addressed a gathering of more than 500 Abaluhya community members at his residence in the Kapseret constituency.

The MP has been embroiled in a court struggle over his KCSE qualification. According to rumors, Sudi attended Highway secondary school and took the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education exams. However, in court, Sudi's former principal, Patrick Maritim, testified that Sudi had never attended Highway.

In May, Maritim corroborated the statement made by a Kenya National Examinations Council employee that Sudi did not register for or take the 2006 exam. While he was principal, Sudi's name did not appear in the school's official records, he informed magistrate Felix Kombo. Maritim stated Sudi’s name did not appear in the register and index 81, which Sudi allegedly fabricated, belonged to Nicholas Otieno.

“The KCSE certificate is generally obtained through Knec. The student will then come and sign that it has been collected. And from the records, it does not reflect Sudi sat for KCSE at Highway Secondary School,” the witness added. In this case, Sudi had been charged with forging a diploma certificate in Business Management from the Kenya Institute of Management.
