Gatundu North Member of Parliament Francis Kigo Njenga has warned Mombasa Governor Ali Hassan Joho against interfering with institutions mandated to probe academic qualifications of aspirants vying for various political positions.
He has thereby recommended possible prosecution of all hopefuls including Joho whose academic qualifications are questionable.
This comes after Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC) unearthed that the 1992 KCSE result slip belonging to Joho was a forgery.
Joho was thereby summoned by police to record a statement on his academic certificates after the examination body wrote to director of criminal investigation disowning Joho papers.
Kigo said a thorough probe and possible prosecution of all hopefuls with forgery documents should be done to ensure that aspirants were Matiang’i compliant. He told examination and criminal investigation departments to fight intimidation from quack leaders.
‘Like you did to Joho, please investigate and possibly prosecute all hopefuls whose academic papers are questionable. Joho is a drop in the ocean; there are so many aspirants hiding behind shells,’ he said.
Speaking after launching construction of Kanyoni-Kiriko road in Gatundu North on Monday, Kigo wondered how Joho was admitted to university after the shocking revelations cited he had a D- in his KCSE exams.
‘How could someone be admitted for a degree program having scored a D-? This is strange if related to the current behaviors from the governor really signifies how unqualified Joho is. I urge KNEC and other investigative departments to conduct an in-depth investigation of all aspiring leaders,’ said Kigo.
‘Could this be the reason Joho has been behaving so strange lately maybe to defend his authenticity?’ asked Kigo.
The shocking revelations leave Joho in an indefinable position because it could nullify his two Ugandan and Greatsa University disputed degrees thereby exposing him to criminal charges.
