Kapseret Member of Parliament Oscar Sudi now says it will take over 300 years for individuals with degrees and masters to accomplish what he has been able to achieve with his purported ‘little education’.
The MP is facing a criminal case for allegedly faking academic papers that he used for his nomination to vie for the seat in the 2013 general elections.
Prosecution witnesses who have testified in the case this week told the court that Sudi’s secondary and college certificates were forged – revelations that have seen a number of Kenyans mock the vocal legislator.
But even as Kenyans have a field day trolling the MP who is serving his second term, he now says he is satisfied with his reasoning ability, usually referred to as Intelligence Quotient (IQ).
In a short video shared on his official Facebook page, Sudi said he has been able to accomplish a lot, and asked those concerned about his case to focus on themselves.
“I saw many people saying they have papers, degrees, but I want to tell you, my IQ is enough. Where I have come from, where I am and where I’m going, it will take those with degrees and masters 300 years,” he noted adding that “so don’t bother about me, focus on yourselves. This is not a Kapseret or a community problem, it is my problem.”
Sudi also expressed confidence that he will be on the ballot in the 2022 general elections despite the ongoing case against him, firing a warning shot at individuals hoping to take advantage of the case to vie for the Kapseret Parliamentary seat.
“Those saying I won’t be on the ballot, I want to assure you, I will be in the ballot, I’ll prove you wrong. This case is not even halfway, we are still on the prosecution side,” he noted.
The criminal case against Sudi started around 2015 and the MP wants Kenyans to stop making conclusions, but instead allow the court to conclude the matter.
It is only recently that he said once his turn comes, he will line up at least 50 witnesses to testify in his favor.
