Kabogo Given 10 Days To Prove He Didn't Forge Documents In Waititu's Case.

Kiambu Governor William Kabogo has been given upto Friday next week to prove that he did not forge the academic papers he tabled in court purportedly belonging to Kabete MP Ferdinand Waititu. This was after he was unable to produce the documents yesterday in a Nairobi court as earlier directed.

Kabogo had applied for more time to produce certification for the documents after the court heard that the exams body successfully verified that he used forged KNEC results to question Waititu’s academic qualifications.

In the court papers, Clifford Ndung’u Waititu, the Kabete MP did not register or sit Certificate of Primary Education (CPE) examination in the year 1975 at Mbagathi Primary School as alleged by Kabogo. KNEC further alleged that in its data base for the year 1975, the CPE code produced by Kabogo belonged to Chemasingi Primary School in Bomet County.

On his part, Waititu argued that the court had no jurisdiction to entertain the case as it raised no constitutional issues. He said the agency with powers to authenticate his academic papers was the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC).

Waititu accused Kabogo of forging the papers and had filed in court a document from KNEC verifying that he did not sit for his CPE in 1975 at Mbagathi Primary school as alleged by Kabogo.
According to the document, the CPE examination code for the said primary school in 1975 was 41004 and not 52019 which belonged to Chemasingi Primary School. He has also clarified that he sat for his CPE in 1977 at Munro Primary School.

Waititu further filed KNEC certificates showing that he sat for his KJSE and O levels at Ruiru and Dagoretti High School respectively.

Before he joined Punjab University in 1985, Waititu contended that obtained an A level certificate from the Kenya Polytechnic where he studied for about two years.

Kabogo has until May 10 to file his response to Waititu’s claims.
