Hassan Omar goes to court to demand IEBC produce Joho's academic papers
Joho is embroiled in another saga after the IEBC was told to...
Omar wants Joho's secondary school and university certificates be made available to court to have them scrutinised over allegations of forgery.
Through his lawyer Yusuf Abubakar, Omar challenged the legitimacy of Joho’s election based on his academic qualifications before Mombasa High Court Lady Justice Lydia Achode.
“We request a copy of degree certificate used by IEBC as academic qualification by the third respondent to contest the Mombasa gubernatorial election,” Abubakar requested.
Omar also wants access to the Kenya Integrated Election Management System (KIEMS) and Form 37A used to declare Joho as governor.
In March, the the Kenya National Examinations council revealed that Joho's Secondary school certificate is a forgery.
KNEC’s acting chief executive, Ms Mercy Gathigia Karogo, in a letter to the Director of Criminal Investigations Ndegwa Muhoro, said they had established that the “purported" copy of results slip presented to the council for authentication was obtained from a forged document.
Joho has been battling claims on the authenticity of his academic qualifications with several court cases being brought against him since his election as the Governor of Mombasa County.
