Latest Details on Sakaja's Degree That Could Prevent Him From Vying For Nairobi Gubernatorial Seat

For the record second time,the Commission for University Education has revoked Sakaja's degree.In a letter addressed to the electoral body IEBC,the commission has written a letter detailing the evidence under which Sakaja's degree was not recognized.

The commission revealed that by the time Sakaja was graduating at the said time,the National Commission for Higher Education in Uganda had not accredited Team University to offer the degree in Bachelor not Science in Management.Also it revealed that Sakaja's degree was not offered by Team university since the only degree with a resemblance to that of Sakaja was Bachelor of Science in Manager while Sakaja's degree was referred to as Bachelor of Science in Management (external).The degrees are different.

Another reason was that while vying for the position of senator in Nairobi in 2017,Sakaja said he had not studied outside Kenya but had studied for a degree in Actuarial Science from the University of Nairobi.The commission confirmed from the University and found that Sakaja had not completed his degree in Actuarial Science from the University of Nairobi.

The commission has also detailed that there was no sufficient evidence from the National Commission for Higher Education in Uganda,Team university and from Sakaja to show that he studied the said degree.

Based on the facts above the commission has decided to revoke Sakaja's degree.The revocation makes Sakaja's ambitions of being Nairobi governor a mere gamble since he can not be allowed by the electoral body to vie without a degree from a recognised University in Kenya.
