2017 Statement that may come back to haunt Sakaja
Nairobi Senator Johnson Sakaja’s statement in 2017 that he graduated from the University of Nairobi may come back to haunt him.
This will include an ongoing investigation into allegations of violations facing them.
Sakaja said he has a degree, which officials of the Directorate of Criminal Investigations and the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission may have obtained during the ongoing investigation.
The statement was made on his self-proclaimed forms submitted to the EACC.
“He will be resurrected. That could be dangerous at the moment, ”said an official familiar with the plans.
DCI sued June 20 for forgery.
It is the same day he must give proof to the Commission on Universities (CUE) that he is a graduate.
Sakaja claims to have obtained a Bachelor of Science in Management (Foreign Affairs) from Team University in Uganda.
Director of Public Prosecutions Noordin Haji ordered police to investigate the allegations and others.
Chief Crime Chief Kuria Obadiah told the senator to report to DCI at 2pm Monday night. This happened a day after Sakaja arrived at DCI headquarters, but was fired by detectives.
“I am investigating allegations of forgery contrary to Article 345 of the Penal Code and I have reason to believe that you, Sakaja, have information that may assist me in my investigation,” said a letter from DCI sent to the senator.
He was asked to submit a letter of application he sent to Team University, a letter of subscription and payment of tuition fees.
He must also submit a letter of approval from the President of the Senate indicating that he has been approved to travel to Uganda for his studies or any other activities.
The DPP called on the police to address allegations and complaints about undergraduate degree graduates on social media and usually for investigation.
