Kanini Kega: Sakaja is my friend, I can confirm he dropped out of University in 2008

by Amos Khaemba

The University of Nairobi recently confirmed that Nairobi gubernatorial candidate on a UDA ticket Johnson Sakaja was indeed their student.

According to the institution’s records, the youthful politician was yet to graduate as he had to complete his studies.

Sakaja has been under intense pressure from many quotas even some challenging him to at least reveal the identity of his classmates.

Speaking on Kameme TV on Wednesday, June 15, Kieni MP Kanini Kega claimed that the incumbent Nairobi senator dropped out of campus in 2007.

Kega claims to have been a close friend to Sakaja since their campus days and alleged that the Nairobi gubernatorial candidate dropped out of school to join the Vijana na Kibaki lobby group during the 2007 General Election.

“I want to confirm for the record that Sakaja has been my friend for a long time, and I know that he dropped out of campus in 2007. I was with him in 2007 when he dropped. I had graduated myself but he had not. He dropped out to join Vijana na Kibaki,” Kanini said.

According to the Kieni MP a close ally of President Uhuru Kenyatta, Sakaja has never gone back to University to finish his education.

“My friend Sakaja… Do the honorable thing and seek forgiveness.” Kanini said in a Facebook post.

Sakaja, a close associate of the Kenya Kwanza alliance presidential flag bearer William Ruto, is facing a petition where his academic papers are being questioned.

According to the petition before the IEBC Dispute Resolution Committee, Sakaja is accused of using a forged degree certificate from the Team University of Uganda.

But Nairobi senator has defended his academic papers saying his tribulations are politically motivated and that the government is determined to frustrate his gubernatorial ambition.

“President Uhuru Kenyatta and the entire State machinery have gone on an intimidation spree against institutions locally and in Uganda to revoke the recognition of my qualifications in a bid to stop me from [becoming] the Governor of Nairobi,” Sakaja said in a Facebook post.
