University Commission withdraws letter revoking Sakaja degree

The Commission for University Education (CUE) chairman Chacha Nyaigoti Chacha has withdrawn a letter that had revoked Nairobi governor candidate Johnson Sakaja’s degree.

Sakaja acquired his degree from Team University.

Chacha says the commission will give further directions once the investigations are concluded.

“That the respondent wishes to confirm to the honorable court that the substratum of this suit being the letter dated June 14, 2022, for which review is sought is hereby withdrawn pending further investigations by the respondent,” reads a letter from CUE chairman.

This comes hardly a week after CUE said it did not recognize the Senator’s degree from the Uganda-based university.

After a long battle at the IEBC tribunal over his degree qualification which is a prerequisite for gubernatorial aspirant, Sakaja was cleared to contest for the seat Sunday.

He will battle it out with Jubilee’s Polycarp Igathe, who according to the recent opinion poll by Trends and Insights Africa (TIFA), trails Sakaja of UDA at 41% and 24% respectively.
