Another Jubilee member has been called out for presenting fake certificates for nomination – Starehe MP Maina Kamanda allegedy forged his papers, and glaring grammatical errors are noticeable – His opponents leaked the document and are planning on writing to the IEBC too about his candidature
The months leading up to an election is do or die for an aspirant, not the election day, which is why detractors are doing their best to discredit their opponents.
Four years ago in October 2013, Starehe Member of Parliament Maina Kamanda was investigated for providing forged documents with his nomination papers. An investigation conducted by the Directorate of Criminal Investigations upon the request of the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions Keriako Tobiko was opened after members of Amani Kariakor-Pangani group lodged a complaint.
Apparently, Kamanda was accused of forging his O-level certificate, said to be issued by the East African Education Council in 1974 yet he never went past primary school education.
According to Nairobi News, Kamanda did not respond to the allegations seven months after winning the seat, but in 2017, accusations of forgery have been brought forth again five months to the August 8 election.
A leaked document by a source from Kamanda’s inner circle who opts to remain anonymous reveals his documents could have been, indeed, forged and presented for nominations. According to the source, Kamanda, who is planning to defend his seat, will face an uphill task as his opponents joined hands to challenge the authenticity of his papers in a court of law.tml
