Nairobi Senator Johnson Sakaja's fake degree saga. Court stops CUE move

The determination of the Commission for University Education (CUE) to remove the accreditation of Nairobi Senator Johnson Sakaja's degree has been put on hold by the High Court.

Justice Jarius Ngaah, in a court ruling, directed the Commission to keep Sakaja's degree genuine till further notice.

Sakaja's admissions, which were filed alongside his affidavit, were proved as factual, according to Justice Ngaah.

The order also prevents the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) from striking the Senator's name from the list of approved gubernatorial candidates for the Nairobi county seat.

"An Order of Certiorari to remove into this Honorable Court and quash the decision of the Commission for University Education made on June 14, 2022, revoking the 'recognition' of the applicant's degree from Team University, Kampala, Uganda. 

"An Order of Mandamus compelling the respondent herein to maintain the validity of the applicant's degree pending further directions by the Honorable Court," the Judge ordered. 

 "Having considered the statement filed alongside the application together with the affidavit verifying the facts and the exhibits thereto, I hereby certify the application urgent." 

"Considering the material before the court, I am also satisfied that the applicant has made out a case for grant of leave to file a substantive motion for judicial review orders of certiorari, mandamus and prohibition. Accordingly, leave is granted in terms of prayer 2 of the chamber," the Judge ruled.
