MCA arrested for forging degree during 2017 election
Manyatta B ward MCA, Pamela Akinyi, has been arrested by EACC officials on allegations of forgery.
Reports reaching us show that the MCA is accused of having used forged academic documents to submit to the IEBC during registration for 2017 General Elections.
The document is believed to be KCA University’s letter of completion, normally given to students who have completed their final year of studies and are awaiting graduation.
“After the 2017 General Elections, the Commission received a report that the MCA had forged her documents prompting EACC to conduct investigations. After submitting our investigation reports, we received consent from the DPP to arrest and charge her. Ms Pamela Akinyi is being charged for these offenses under the LIA 2012 and the Penal Code. She will take plea at the Kakamega Anti-Corruption Court tomorrow (Thursday)” EACC stated.
EACC stated that there is a second suspect on the run who assisted the MCA in forging the documents.
The MCA was first elected in 2013 and now she is on her second term.
