Owing to the new developments, Sudi’s defense team urged Chief Magistrate Thomas Nzyuki to grant them more time as they write to Chief Justice Martha Koome requesting her to allow the matter be concluded to finality by Magistrate Kombo.
They said it would only be prudent to have the matter concluded by Kombo as the investigating officer is finalizing his evidence.
Sudi has been charged with forging his academic certificates and presenting a false declaration to the IEBC officials while seeking clearance from the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission and the Ethics and Anticorruption Commission to contest in the 2013 general elections.
He is also accused of making a false declaration under oath through a self-declaration form to IEBC at Barng’etuny Plaza in Eldoret in 2015. This is contrary to section 46 of the Leadership and Integrity Act.
