Kenyans Surprised By IEBC Candidate Who Studied For PhD In Six Months Only

IEBC selection panel led by Chairperson Dr Elizabeth Muli at KICC, Nairobi. 

Kenyans were surprised to hear that one of the candidates for commissioner job in IEBC did a PhD in only six months time. The revelation came when Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) panel led by Chairperson Dr Elizabeth Muli wanted to know how Salim Ndemo graduated with a PhD six months after getting his masters.

The panel also wanted to know if the degree was even real since they could not find the university. A search online showed that the university is registered in British Virgin Islands and does not seem to have a physical location. British Virgin Islands is known as tax haven for companies that do not want to remit tax revenues or is avoiding scrutiny from federal agents.

To the amazement of the panel, Ndemo said that actually he had never set foot on the said university. He said that for the six months, he studied online. About the university being registered on Virgin Islands, he said when he enrolled it was based on Delaware. That it was moved came as a surprise to him and he heard about it for the first time from the interviewing panel. He also divulged that when he enrolled the university told him they were applying for accreditation, that they never got it is unfortunate according to Ndemo.
