A Nairobi court on Monday increased the cash bail for Kapseret MP Oscar Sudi by Sh200,000 to Sh500,000 after he skipped a court session in April in a criminal case he is accused of forging academic papers.

Milimani Anti-Corruption Court Magistrate Felix Kombo ordered the MP to add an extra 200,000 shillings after the judicial officer dismissed his reason for skipping court.

The Kapseret MP was on the list of 20 political aspirants red carded by the Kenya National Commission on Human Rights (KNCHR) as candidates who are not fit to run for public office in the coming August 8, 2017 polls on account that he presented  forged academic documents before the IEBC to vie in the previous General Election.

The court ruled that the legislator was busy campaigning for his re-election as Kapseret MP instead of appearing in court.

Mr Sudi is accused of  presenting forged KCSE certificate from Highway High School and a Diploma in Business Management from Kenya Institute of Management to the IEBC to be cleared to run in the 2013 polls.
