CUE comes to the defense of MP Simba Arati, says his degree is genuine

BY JOAN WANJIKU,NAIROBI,16TH JUNE,2022-The Commission for University Education has certified Dagoretti North MP Simba Arati’s Degree and Masters certificates.

While responding to a complaint brought before the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission Dispute Resolution Committee, CUE validated the Kisii Gubernatorial Candidate’s academic documents issued by the Jaramogi Oginga Odinga University of Science and Technology.

The move prompted the Committee to withdraw the complaints filed by two petitioners, Moses Ayieko Ntabo and Wesley Obwang’i, who had challenged his nomination to contest a governor’s position claiming that he has no degree.

The decision came hours after Arati launched opposition against complaint raised by the two.

“The complainants are simply on a fishing expedition and they have deliberately failed to join the relevant academic institutions in as far as they are questioning the validity of the academic certificates awarded to the Respondent,” law firm representing Arati, Nyandieka and Advocates told the Committee

the law firm added that “the complaint lacks legal basis, is frivolous, vexatious and is made in abuse of the process of the court/committee,”

Arati further says that the complaint was filed with a motive of crippling his campaigns.
