In recent weeks, Kenyan gubernatorial candidate Johnson Sakaja has faced a storm of criticism over his academic credentials.
Sakaja claims to be the best candidate for the top job in Nairobi County, claiming to have graduated from Uganda’s Team University.
“Among other qualifications and accolades, I hold a Bachelor of Science in Management degree from Team University in Uganda, for which I satisfied all of the conditions,” he claims, refuting the complainants’ false claims.
