On Sunday morning Kenyans woke up to media reports that Nairobi County Senator, Johnson Sakaja, never graduated from University of Nairobi despite him being admitted to the university in 2003 and claiming to be an Actuarial Science graduate.

In a couple of interviews, Johnson Sakaja consistently claimed to be a graduate of University of Nairobi.

In another interview with Nyashinski, a veteran musician, the Nairobi business man cum politician said that he has never schooled outside the country.

“I have never left Kenya in terms of education. I joined University of Nairobi in 2003 and at that time I was also working as an audit clerk.”

Close confidants of the Nairobi Senator who sought anonymity told Unreported Ke that Johnson Sakaja was picked from the university in 2007 by the Kibaki Tena team and never went back to complete his studies.

He later joined The National Alliance Party where he was the secretary general before expressing his interest for the Nairobi Senatorial Seat in 2017.

While running for Nairobi Senate Seat, Sakaja presented University of Nairobi transcripts though not compulsory.

On Wednesday last, he presented papers from Teams University Uganda indicating that he graduated from the university in 2016. He indicated that he Studied in Teams University from 2012 to 2016 when the university was not offering that degree through distance learning.

Coincidentally, Immigration Department report indicated that through the entire time, Sakaja only travelled to Uganda once raising questions on when he attended the classes.

Despite him having a certificate from the university, Sakaja is also missing from the 2016 graduation booklet of Teams University.

The revelations by Sunday Nation and other local news outlets might bring to an end Sakaja candidature for Nairobi Top Seat.
