Nairobi Senator Johnson Sakaja will now know his fate on Sunday 19th June.

This comes after IEBC Disputes and Resolution Committee dismissed a letter from the Commission for University Education (CUE) revoking Sakaja’s Team University degree.

CUE on Wednesday revoked the recognition of Sakaja’s degree stating that degree will further be investigated to ascertain its validity.

The cases

The commission said that it had received information and material about the authenticity of the degree that he presented.

“Consequently, in accordance with the CUE recognition procedures, we hereby revoke the recognition of your degree, Bachelor of Science in Management from the aforementioned university,” wrote CUE Chairman Chacha Nyaigotti.

The Nairobi Senator later filed a case before the High Court challenging revocation of his degree from the Ugandan University.

Sakaja argued that the revocation of his degree was done unfairly and was politically instigated.

Three out of four filed cases against Sakaja have since been thrown out by the IEBC.

Elizabeth Nzisa, Evans Kaita and Alex Abere wanted the Committee to revoke Sakaja’s clearance to contest in the Nairobi gubernatorial race for lack of requisite academic qualifications.
