Graduates From UoN Awarded 15 Million For Acquiring Useless Degrees

Students who acquired 'useless' degrees will be compensated by the High court. The amount of money aligned for the compensation is 15 million.

Going by the reports, the money will be divided among students who did engineering courses. But failed to secure employment after nine years.

According to justice James Kamau, 75 percent of students from TUK, who studied in 2009 to 2011, sued the institution. According to the students, the degree certificates they acquired are invalid.

These means they aren't recognised by the Engineers Board of Kenya, EBK. As a result, the affected students can get jobs via their certificates.

Note, the affected students joined TUK via UoN. At that time, TUK was known as Kenya Polytechnic but it was a constituent collage of the UoN. The TUK was officially made an University in 2011.

According to James Kamau, students who were referred to TUK, in 2009 and 2011, by the UoN were suppose to get their degrees under the UoN. Therefore, Justice Kamau wants the names of the affected students to be forwarded to UoN.

These will enable the students get legit degree certificates. Apart from that, Kamau has find the two institution guilty of violating the students' expectations.

These means, the 15 million compensation will come from their pockets. Otherwise share with us your thoughts on the comment section.
