KNEC: Oscar Sudi Forged His KCSE Certificate, Never Sat for Knec Exams

A Nairobi court on Tuesday heard that Kapsaret Member of Parliament Oscar Sudi never sat for his Kenya Certificate of Secondary Exams (KCSE).

The MP gave an authentication certificate showing that he sat for the test in 2006, at Highway Secondary School in Nairobi. That would suggest he was age 25 at that point.

Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC) head assessments secretary Nabiki ene Kashu, told justice Felix Kombo that Sudi was not enrolled with the body for that test.

The MP is being accused of producing a diploma certificate from Kenya Institute of Management, however apparently his KCSE certificate isn’t veritable either, as there would be no other more noteworthy power to verify it yet KNEC, who are the issuers.

As indicated by Kashu, KNEC got a letter from the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission on September 17, 2015, requesting it to check the scholarly accreditations of the legislator.

“In the letter, we were asked to authenticate whether such a candidate sat his KCSE in the year 2006 at Highway Secondary School in Nairobi in November and awarded certificate serial number 3381074 under index 401006/081,” he said.

After checking, they couldn’t find Sudi’s name on their data base, and his implied index prefix didn’t belong to Highway Secondary School.

The index number given by Sudi belonged Obaje Bob Onyango, who sat the 2006 KCSE tests at Parklands Secondary School.

“There is no possibility of two schools sharing a code number during a given examination. Similarly, there is no possibility of two candidates sharing an index number,”

“The purported copy of certificates presented to Knec for authentication purposes is obtained from a forged document,” the witness concluded.
