BY JOAN WANJIKU,NAIROBI,18TH MAY 2018-Meru Senator Mithika Linturi has  gotten reprieve  after the high court on Friday  ordered Nairobi university to  award him his law degree and reinstate him as a postgraduate student.This means that the Meru senator has won  a legal battle pitting him  against the University of Nairobi which had de-registered  him as a law student.

He was deregistered last year following allegations that he used fake academic papers to get admitted for the degree course.

While delivering the ruling  Judge John Mativo  said actions by the university of deregistering and discontinuing the senator from the programme and studies at the law school and stopping him from participating from in the graduation ceremony held in December last year are “unconstitutional, illegal, unreasonable, irrational and procedurally unfair”.
