In most of his interviews, Sakaja often claimed that he graduated with a degree in actuarial science from the University of Nairobi.
But in what appeared that Sakaja has never graduated from a Kenyan university, UoN in reference insisted that Sakaja was still a student and that he had not completed his course.
In an interview with Spice FM on Friday, July 1, the Nairobi gubernatorial candidate Johnson Sakaja admitted that he never completed his degree due to a lack of school fees.
The controversial politician revealed that he only has a few units remaining in his course to finish his degree course.
“I studied actuarial science at UoN for four years but did not graduate for lack of fees. It was a difficult process. By the time I could go back, I was too embarrassed to go back to class,” he said.
The United Democratic Alliance (UDA) politician further said he acquired another degree certificate but he was planning on going back to UoN to complete the remaining units.
It was not immediately established how Sakaja lacked fees to complete his degree certificate but raised money that helped him acquire another degree at the same time he allegedly bought his first Mercedez Benz.
The new development comes just a day after the Commission for University Education (CUE) revoked senator Sakaja’s degree certificate.
In a letter to Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) chairman, Wafula Chebukati CUE said it had not received any evidence from Teams University of Sakaja studied in Uganda.
“The Commission has come to the inescapable decision that the purported degree certificate of Bachelor of Science in Management is ineligible for recognition,” CUE said
