Nairobi Senator Johnson Sakaja has maintained he has a valid degree from Teams University in Uganda.
In response to four complaints, Sakaja says he graduated from the Ugandan University on October 16, 2016.
"Complainants' wild allegations to the effect that l did not graduate from Team University are factually hollow and unfounded. For nefarious goals, the complainants have fraudulently omitted relevant pages in the graduation booklet that bear my graduation credentials," the senator states in a replying affidavit filed before the IEBC committee.
Moreover, Sakaja now claims that the name cited by one of the complainants does not belong to him clarifying that his name is Sakaja Johnson Arthur, not Sakaja Koskei Johnson.
"I have never been known, identified or addressed by a name Sakaja Koskei Johnson in any manner whoever associated to in one of the complainants herein," says Sakaja.
"The person referred to in the suit is not myself by any means or imaginary stretch. The person cited as Sakaja Koskei Johnson in the suit is a complete stranger to the election for the position of Governor Nairobi City County in the August general elections," he states.
Sakaja also states that his qualifications and academic papers are not in doubt having been affirmed through a lawful process.
He says he has been cleared legally by IEBC.
