The plot has thickened for Nairobi Senator Johnson Sakaja after the University of Nairobi confirmed that he has not yet graduated with a degree from the institution.
This is after the self claimed super Senator confirmed to have graduated with a degree in Actuarial Science, a course he studied between the year 2002 and 2007.
Speaking with the Nation was UoN communication director John Orindi who said that the Senator was admitted in 2003 but is yet to graduate.

“It is true Sakaja was admitted to the university and was pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Actuarial Science, studied from first year up to fourth year, but is yet to graduate,” Said John Orindi
The University is currently leading detectives in an ongoing investigation of the Senator on his credentials if they are valid or not. The investigation is still ongoing.
A petition has also been filed before the Independent Electoral and Boundary Commission(IEBC) to verify the information and bar the Senator from vying the gubernatorial seat of Nairobi.
The petition will also seek to verify if the Senator graduated with a Bachelor in Science from Uganda as claimed by Johnson Sakaja in his application. According a booklet from the University, Sakaja was not among the grandaunts in that year.
Sakaja now joins a list of Kenyans blocked and suspected to have forged their documents in order to vie for elective positions in the country.
Walter Mong’are well known as Nyambane who was vying for Presidency had his named cleared by IEBC only for the commission to revoke his clearance after establishing his certificates were not valid.
Businessman turned politician Jimi Wanjigi was also denied clearance by the commission after it was established that he was yet to graduate after presenting transcripts at the Bomas of Kenya.
