His clearance came amid speculations that the vocal legislator possesses a fake Degree certificate.
While it was expected that his clearance would bring to an end the debate about Sakaja’s academic qualifications, the move opened a new chapter in regard to Sakaja’s educational history.
Sakaja who is eying the Nairobi gubernatorial seat in the forthcoming elections came under criticism after a video of him struggling to name some of his University classmates emerged.
Sakaja who was speaking to Inoro TV on Sunday, June 11, insisted that he is a graduate of the University of Nairobi (UoN) but he does not recall those he studied with in the same class.
When asked to name some of his university classmates, the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) politician said the majority of the people he schooled with at the said institution were not famous.
Sakaja further claimed that most of his university lessons were done virtually through online courses.
“Classmates wangu labda hutawajua kwa sababu hii rika yangu watu wengi hawajajulikana. Nimesoma chuo kikuu cha Nairobi na masomo yangu mengi yalikuwa ya online (You may not know most of my classmates because most of them are not famous. I studied at the University of Nairobi and most of my studies were online),” Sakaja said.
He said he could only remember one Dan Mwangi, a journalist at the Daily Nation who he claimed that they schooled together at the Lenana National School.
“Lakini watu kama Dan Mwangi wa kitio cha Nation Media nilisoma nao shule ya upili ya lenana hapa Nairobi, (But people like Dan Mwangi of Nation Media station I studied with them here at the Lenana High School here in Nairobi),” he added.
