The legislator is charged with forging his academic certificates and submitting a false declaration to IEBC during the 2013 general election.

A similar case against an employee of the Rural Electrification and Renewable Energy Corporation (REREC) will be heard in the same court on Wednesday.

Javason Kimemia Maina faces several charges including forging a KCSE certificate from Kimuri Secondary School to secure a job at the agency.

“He is charged with fraudulent acquisition of public funds, forgery, and uttering false documents. Allegations relate to forgery of documents to obtain employment” said EACC on X.

This comes amid a heightened crackdown on public servants who acquired their positions using fake certificates.

Other cases include that of former Geothermal Development Company (GDC) Managing Director Silas Masinde and eight others whose hearing is slated for Friday, April 5. They are charged with willful failure to comply with the Law relating to procurement.

“The allegations relate to irregular procurement at GDC emanating from rig move services tender that was awarded at Kes42.7 million per move” the EACC schedule reads.

It will be preceded by an EACC recovery suit coming up for mention on Thursday against Estama Investments Ltd and 13 others. The company is at the centre of the Ministry of Health’s mobile clinics scandal.

EACC is seeking to recover Ksh800 million illegally paid to the defendants through an award of an overvalued tender of the supply of 100 portable medical clinics to the Ministry of Health.
