New twist as Court establishes Sudi did not travel to Turkey

The forgery case against Kapseret Member of Parliament Oscar Sudi has taken a new twist after the court established that the legislator is not out of the country as alleged.

The MP Thursday for the time did not show up in court with his lawyers claiming he’s undergoing treatment in Turkey.

Lawyers Thomas Ruto, Collins Kiprono and George Wajakoyah frantic efforts to obtain travel documents to prove that their client had indeed travelled flopped.

Wajakoyah who is also a presidential aspirant told the court his co-counsel was at the embassy securing the documents forcing the court to temporary adjourn.

When the hearing resumed, the team was only able to present a medical report whose authentication was in question. Lawyer Kiprono had a difficult time confirming whether Austin Okoth a signatory of the diagnosis was a doctor

Upon further interrogation by the visibly riled Anti-Corruption Court Chief Magistrate Felix Kombo, Sudi’s lawyers said the flight may have either been delayed or cancelled.

The hearing continues with the first witness taking to the stand.

The court Wednesday declined a petition by the defense to have the case pushed.
