Khalwale Trolled For Comparing Sudi, Joho Academic Papers


Former Kakamega Senator Boni Khalwale has been criticized by some TBEN after he alleged Kasparet MP Oscar Sudi’s academic papers were at issue simply because he is a supporter of the Vice President William Ruto.

Speaking in an interview on Thursday, October 28, Khalwale compared Sudi to Mombasa Governor Hassan Ali Joho, denouncing that the latter had not been subjected to such a public trial.

In addition, Khalwale claimed that there were many governors, currently in office, who did not hold the minimum requirement of a bachelor’s degree.

“We all know the courts made a statement on education or lack of education by Mombasa Governor Joho. He has never been subjected to this kind of trial in the court of public opinion. It’s a waste of time, ”Khalwale said.

The former senator then named some leaders who have been to Parliament but never graduated.

“I don’t think an MP or an MCA needs a degree because his role is to supervise, what he needs is to know how to read and write,” he continued.

His feelings were not well received by a section of TBEN who argued that the issue in question was that Sudi had falsified academic documents.

“The problem is not having a diploma. The problem here is having false papers. Counterfeiting is a crime in Kenya,” said one internet user.

“Do not stand up for mediocrity. Forgery of academic documents should be declared a criminal offense,” added another.

The Kenya Institute of Management (KIM) contested a diploma certificate allegedly acquired by Sudi in 2005 from the institution.

Breaking his silence on the issue, Sudi on Wednesday, October 27, convicted those pursuing his case in the public opinion tribunal and urged them to wait for the judicial process to take its course.

“When it is my turn, I will produce more than 50 witnesses on my side,” he said.

He blamed the media fraternity for stoking the flames over the allegations and claimed they were peddling lies around his case.
