DP Ruto's ally respond on controversial details on his academic and professional records as DCI officers close in

Kimilili MP Didmus Barasa has been forced to issue a statement after People Daily blew his cover, exposing the loopholes and the lies in his CV that he has peddled for years.


The piece titled titled Is Didmus Barasa ex-army captain or a masquerade? exposed the lawmaker as a serial liar after establishing that what the MP has been presenting is not actually true but are pure lies.

On the National Assembly’s official website, controversial Kimilili lawmaker Didmus Barasa is identified as a former Kenya Air Force captain, who served in the military for six years in what would pass as a very impressive curriculum vitae.


The publication established that he was not in military for six years as alleged and did not rise to the rank of Captain as the MP claims on LinkedIn, a social media platform used for professional networking where he identifies himself as “Capt Rtd Didmus Barasa, OGW”.

Sources at the DCI and EACC revealed that although Barasa served in the military, he never rose to the level of a captain as he proclaims. The sources further reveal that he left the military under dubious circumstances after being tried by the military court martial following his arrest.


EACC spokesman Yassin Amaro confirmed that “We are trying to ascertain the claims. There are lots of doubts over his title of captain that detectives are at the moment trying to establish if it is true that he served in the military in that rank.”


Also on focus were his work experience and academic journey that had contradictions and loopholes, leading one to the obvious conclussion that they were pure lies.

The embarrassing revelations saw the MP address a press conference in his constituency in which he downplayed the concerns stating that his academic credentials and work experience that are suspected to be fake have no relation to his leadership abilities.

“There is a newspaper that reported that I am not a professor and that I am not that learned. When I was looking for votes, did I say I am a learned fellow?” he posed.

“I competed against very learned fellows in the last elections but I trounced them all. I have done much more developments and built at least 16 schools,” he added.
