Uganda police have launched investigations into the validity of Nairobi senator Johnson Sakaja's Team University degree.
In a letter addressed to the Commission for University Education, the National Council for Higher Education (NCHE) Executive Director Mary Okwakol noted that they have halted investigations into Sakaja's degree following the decision by the Ugandan Inspector General of police to initiate a probe.
“NCHE commenced investigations in order to determine the authenticity of the Bachelor of Science in Management (External) degree awarded to Sakaja Johnson by Team University," the letter reads in parts.
"However, prior to completion of our investigation, the Inspectorate of Government (IG) has commenced investigations into the same matter, hence superseding our action.”
Sakaja's degree revoked
Sakaja's woes have continued deepening following the validity of his degree.
This is after the Commission for University Education (CUE) also revoked the recognition of his degree for the second time.
"Based on these findings and in compliance with the ongoing provisions of sections of The Universities Act, 2012, Part XI of The Universities Regulations 2014, The Universities Standards and Guidelines, 2014, and the Standards for recognition and Equation of qualifications and granted the disclaimer in the certificate of recognition issued, the Commission has come to the m inescapable decision to that the purported degree certificate of Bachelor of Science in Management (External) is ineligible for recognition," the letter read in parts," the letter reads in parts.
