politicians who have fake academic papers and college certificates are facing a difficult time which would end their political professions as CS Magoha makes a serious step against them. The Education Cabinet Secretary, Professor George Magoha has started quest for these politicians who are also looking for elective seats in different positions in the August General Elections.
The Education CS has written to AG Kihara Kariuki seeking for intervention and direction in making a move against those politicians with fake certificates.
Last week, a parliamentary board said that it was illegal for the Kenya National Qualification Authority (KNQA) to verify the scholarly papers belonging to politicians. However the Ministry of Education has made a move to keep up with the role of KNQA to verify their certificates.
The Kenya National Qualification Authority (KNQA) has been exceptionally keen in controling curbing and use of fake papers in the new past.
In February last year, KNQA issued a report disclosing that very many Kenyans have fake academic papers and certificates. The Director-General of Kenya National Qualification Authority Dr Juma Mukhwana said that the number of fake academic certificates continues to increase especially as the country heads to the general elections. This is because it has emerged that many politicians who are seeking elective seats are allegedly using fake certificates.
A number of politicians have been accused of possessing fake academic papers and Magoha’s action threatens their political career. According to reports, these politicians include;
1. Taita Governor, Granton Samboja.
2. Wiper Party’s Agnes Kavindu.
3. Wajir Governor, Mohamed Abdi.
4. Former Kiambu governor, Ferdinand Waititu
5. Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho
6. Former Kiambu governor William Kabogo.
7. Kapseret MP Oscar Sudi.
