Commission for University Education has revoked the recognition of Senator Johnson Sakaja’s degree from Team University, Uganda says further investigations needed to verify its validity.
“The Commission for University Education has however received material information about the authenticity of the degree you presented from Team University that will require further investigation to ascertain the validity of the said degree certificate,” the letter stated.
CUE’s Chairperson Prof. Chacha Nyaigotti in a letter dated June 14 addressed to the Nairobi Senator further said, “Consequently, in accordance to the CUE Recognition Procedures, we hereby revoke the recognition of your degree – Bachelor of Science in Management (External) from the aforementioned university.”
Sakaja who is contesting for the Nairobi governorship in the August 9 polls claims to have graduated from the institution in October 2016.
The University commission maintains that the move to revoke his degree will allow its officers to investigate the validity of the degree on the back of increased scrutiny into his academic qualifications.
It is a requirement that anyone contesting for the seat of a Governor, President and their respective deputies must be holders of at least a bachelor’s degree.
