More troubles for Sakaja as CUE demand more evidence

Does Sakaja qualify to be a Governor? - CUE asks

Nairobi gubernatorial hopeful Johnson Sakaja

Nairobi gubernatorial aspirant Johnson Sakaja has found himself in a deep mess after being summoned by the Commission for University Education (CUE) to provide proof for a degree that he claims he received from Ugandan university, Team.

According to CUE, the current senator of Nairobi county doesn’t not have the required academic qualifications to vie for governor under the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) ticket.

The revelation was made by CUE chair Professor Chacha Nyaigotti on Friday, June 17 when he revealed that the commission had already received complaints from voters in regards to the eligibility of his academic papers.

“The commission received complaints from members of the public and civil society casting doubts on the authenticity of the degree certificate submitted to CUE by Hon. Sakaja. The gravity of the matters raised, made the Commission to revoke its decision to recognize the degree qualification in Kenya pending further investigations in liaison with other relevant investigative agencies,” Prof Nyaigotti told the Nation Newspaper.

The embattled politician has now been summoned by CUE to provide evidence of his academic qualifications such as the admission letter from the university, student ID, transcripts, receipts of tuition fees paid as well as graduation photos and list of lecturers.

“Further, the Commission has invited Hon. Sakaja to attend a meeting on Monday, 20th June 2022 at 10.00 a.m. in order to provide further information that can aid in the investigations,” the CUE boss said.
