The degree from Uganda that Johnson Sakaja allegedly used for IEBC clearance

by Amos Khaemba

On Tuesday, June 7, Nairobi Senator Johnson Sakaja was cleared by the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) to contest for the Nairobi gubernatorial seat.

His clearance brought to end speculation surrounding the academic qualifications of the United Democratic Alliance politician.

There was high speculation that the youthful politician will not be cleared by IEBC over claims that he possesses fake academic papers.

Now a degree certificate issued by a university in the neighboring country that Sakaja is presumed to have used to get IEBC cleared has surfaced on social media.

On Thursday, June 9, blogger Robert Alai shared documents including a degree certificate from a University in Uganda by the name Team University.

The certificate indicates that Sakaja graduated in 2016 with a Bachelor of Science in Management(External).

Alai also attached a letter from Commission for University Education(CUE) in which Sakaja’s degree was certified as being legitimate.

“I hereby confirm that Team University is a recognized institution in Uganda. The qualification awarded by the said institution is also recognized in Uganda mad by convention in Kenya” Commission for University Education said while recognizing Sakaja’s degree.

A search by Kivumbi.co.ke indicates that Team University is located in Kampala strangely the course on the purportedly Sakaja’s certificate is not offered by the institution.

The controversial blogger who is also vying for the Kileleshwa MCA seat called for the disbandment of CUE for accepting forged academic papers.

“Fraudsters. Sakaja knows that never attended this university but he used it to get IEBC clearance. CUE must be disbanded.” Alai said in a Facebook post.

Last week Kivumbi.co.ke reported that Sakaja dismissed a letter that was circulating online claiming that he did not graduate from the University of Nairobi as propaganda being advanced by his competitors.

“Do I look like someone who has not gone to school? Ignore the propaganda being peddled around. I have more academic credentials than what they are looking for,” said the lawmaker in an exclusive interview with TUKO.co.ke.
