Nairobi Senator Johnson Sakaja’s degree from Team University in Uganda has been canceled by the Commission for University Education.
The Commission received relevant information about the legitimacy of the Bachelor of Science in Management degree, according to a letter dated June 14, 2022.
According to the commission, the degree will be scrutinized further to determine its authenticity.
The commission had written to the senator on June 6 to confirm the certificate’s recognition.
The authenticity of Sakaja’s Team University degree has been called into question, with four complainants alleging that it was forged.
Sakaja was allowed by the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) on June 7 to run for Nairobi governor on a UDA ticket.
Dennis Wahome, one of the complainants, asserts in an affidavit to the IEBC that Sakaja never attended or graduated from Team University.
He said that Sakaja’s Team University Bachelor of Science in Management degree was printed on May 29, 2022.
Sakaja never graduated from the university on October 21, 2016, as he claimed, according to Wahome, because his name does not appear on the university’s graduation list.
