Name of The Governor to Be Arrested by EACC Following Alleged Fake Academic Credentials

During the pre-election period, there have reportedly been instances of politicians providing fraudulent academic credentials in order to appear on the ballot. People thought that politicians like Johnson Sakaja and Cleophas Mala had fake academic credentials, but their credentials were later confirmed.

The Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) has announced its intention to arrest a sitting governor days after the election period. Mr. Twalib Mbarak, the head of the EACC, says that the governor has both a fake university degree and a diploma he got with the goal of getting the IEBC to clear his name.

Following an investigation, the EACC determined that both the governor's degree and diploma certifications were forged, making him subject to criminal prosecution.

TV47 has revealed the name of the governor to be arrested, but the majority of media outlets have stayed silent. The news source said that the EACC would arrest Jeremiah Lumurukai, who is the governor of Turkana.
