Netizens Poke Fun at Sakaja as Pressure Mounts on His Academic Credentials

Johnson Sakaja

Nairobi Senator Johnson Sakaja has been put on the spot as Kenyans on Twitter continue to poke fun at him over his dubious academic credentials.

In the recent past, inconsistencies concerning Sakaja’s academic credentials emerged and a complaint challenging his Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) clearance was filed.

However, in his defense, Sakaja claimed that he attended and graduated from Team University in Uganda.

He argued that the university left put his name on the graduation list.

“That among other qualifications and awards of excellence, I hold a Bachelor of Science in Management degree conferred upon me by Team University in Uganda, having satisfied the requirements for the award,” Sakaja said.

At the same time, St Lawrence University which is linked to the Senator denied the same arguing that Sakaja was never admitted, registered, assessed or conferred any academic award by the university.

The university denied the claims days after University of Nairobi and Teams University issued their statements.

In a letter to the High Commissioner Kenya, the university distanced itself from the forgery allegations and threatened to take legal actions.
