Detectives investigating Mombasa Governor Ali Hassan Joho’s alleged fake academic certificates have found overwhelming evidence that can sustain prosecution against him.
Sources at the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) told the People Daily that the investigating team led by an Assistant Inspector General of Police Samuel Nyabengi has “gathered overwhelming evidence against the governor over claims that he forged a Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) form four examination.
From the investigations conducted so far, it has emerged that Joho was involved in forging the Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC) signature after which he presented the documents to University of Nairobi (UoN), seeking admission.
It said that Joho abandoned plans for admission to UoN after the univsreity insisted that he must attend classes daily and instead applied for admission to Kampala International University where he is believed to have presented similar certificates that are believed to have been forged.
But it is also emerging that once the documents became a subject of investigations, a team at the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) led by John Kariuki, currently the head of who was head of investigations at DCI, who cleared him over the Kampala saga.
Similarly, investigations have established that Joho was later admitted to Gretsa University on the strength of papers from Kampala university.
It has also emerged that in 2003, an unidentified person, a Mr omondi hacked into UoN’s data system, hacked a file and made some documents in Joho’s name.
