According to IEBC, the commission will follow precedent and it's clear they cannot rule contrary to what they ruled on others previously. According to the Commission, Sakaja's degree certificate fully stands unless High Court of Kenya overturned such.

Sakaja's degree troubles have continued to increase with the government of Kenya through EACC and DCI threatening to stop him. Sakaja has however stood to his guns making it clear he will fight all the way until he wins the seat of Governor in Nairobi county.

At the moment, it's clear Sakaja's decision not to be on the ballot can only be overruled by court and not any other individual. Efforts to stop Sakaja from being on the ballot are therefore at the moment heavily futile.
