Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) has handed embattled Nairobi County gubernatorial aspirant, Johnson Sakaja a major win after its latest move on letter regarding the legislator's candidature.
IEBC has made a move to dismiss letter by Commission of University Education dated 30th June 2022, that was revoking Sakaja degree qualification.
ISBC has made a nove to dismiss the letter by CUE on grounds that revocation order can only be made by court for action on aspirants.
In a letter to the IEBC chairman Wafula Chebukati, CUE said it reached the decision after Uganda’s Team University and Sakaja failed to produce necessary evidence showing that he persued a degree at the institution at the close of the investigation.
The senator got another reprieve on June 22 after the Commission for University Education withdrew a letter that had revoked the degree.
IEBC's Dispute Resolution Committee (DRC) had cleared Sakaja to contest for the governor seat on June 19, 2022.
