Sakaja to wait until Friday to know his fate on degree validity

BY CORRESPONDENT,NAIROBI,4TH JULY 2022-UDA Nairobi gubernatorial candidate Johnson Sakaja will know his fate on Friday when the court makes a ruling on the dispute surrounding his academic qualifications.

In his submission, Sakaja dismissed the petitioner as a hired distractor out to derail his ambition.

Sakaja has asked the court not to admit as evidence, the latest letter by the Commission for University Education (CUE), to IEBC revoking recognition of Sakaja’s degree certificate.

Last week the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) dismissed the decision by the Commission for University Education to revoke the recognition of Sakaja’s university degree certificate.

On Thursday (CUE) through its chair cancelled recognition of Sakaja’s degree certificate from Uganda’s Team University claiming by the time the senator obtained the degree, the university was not offering the course externally beyond its borders.

But the electoral commission chair Wafula Chebukati in a swift rejoinder has dismissed CUE, indicating that the degree saga was dealt with by the commission’s Dispute Resolution Tribunal.

According to Chebukati, the only way to reverse Sakaja’s clearance is by overturning the decision of the tribunal through a court order.
