This comes following public debate and court petitions filed against the two seeking to bar them from vying for the respective seats on the basis that the degree certificates they presented to the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) were not genuine.

IG Mutyambai wants the DCI to establish genuineness of these documents and establish whether, or not, there was indeed any crime committed.

“The National Police Service (NPS) has taken cognizance of the ongoing debate in the public domain on allegations touching on the genuineness of university academic certificates and supporting documentation presented to IEBC for clearance by some aspirants for political seats in the forthcoming General Elections,” read a statement by spokesperson Bruno Shioso.

“Owing to the constitutional and legal mandate bestowed upon it, the NPS has commenced criminal investigations into the genuineness of the certificates presented for clearance to the IEBC by two political aspirants, namely Hon Johnson Sakaja and Hon Wavinya Ndeti, both gubernatorial aspirants for Nairobi and Machakos counties respectively, and determine if any offense has been committed.”

Shioso further added: “Consequently, the Inspector General of the NPS has directed the Director, Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) to conduct speedy investigations into such authenticity and genuineness of all the certificates, testimonials, and respective documentation presented to IEBC for clearance by the two aforesaid aspirants to logical conclusion.”
