The investigations agency want Evans Nyaoka Rambeka to return KSh 3,162,452 salary he received for three years while working as a ward administrator for Kisii county.
The Eliud Wabukala led agency argued that Rambeka secured the job using forged testimonials, including his Diploma in Human Resource Management from the Kenya Institute of Management.
However, Rambeka, though his lawyer Danstan Omari, dismissed EACC’s application insisting that he did not forge his academic papers, TV47 reported.

He told Justice Esther Maina that he was not to blame for getting the job without academic qualifications.
“If the employer decided to employ me without academic qualifications, I am not to blame,” said Rambeka.
Omari told the court that when Rambeka sought employment, he did not have any academic qualifications but was considered for the job.
The lawyer asked the court to let the vocal lawmaker rest to enable him to recover from the virus.
In October 2021, an official from the Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC) told a Nairobi court that Sudi’s name was not in the records of students who sat for the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) in 2006.
Testifying before Chief Magistrate Felix Kombo in a case where the lawmaker was accused of forging his KCSE certificate, the KNEC official identified as Nabiki Kashu said Sudi’s certificate was from a non-existent school.
