Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC) letter indicates that the form four certificate that Robert Githongo currently has is forged.
Gatundu South Constituency Development Fund (CDF) chairman Robert Githongo's political ambitions are hanging in the balance following reports that his secondary school certificate is fake.
Mr Githongo will not therefore vie for the Kiamwangi ward seat after the Kenya National Examinations Council (Knec) declared his Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) document was not genuine.
The CDF boss, who is also a pastor, is being investigated for allegedly using the forged certificate to enrol for a diploma course at Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology (JKUAT).
The revelation is an indictment against the cleric's integrity as he has been managing public funds in President Uhuru Kenyatta's rural constituency.
Githongo, a pastor with African Independent Pentecostal Church of Africa (AIPCA), has been the CDF chairman since 2013 and intends to vie for the Kiamwangi seat on a Jubilee ticket. He was expected to participate in the party primaries next month.
