Johnson Sakaja, the senator from Nairobi, has admitted that he did not complete his studies at the University of Nairobi due to a lack of funds.

Sakaja claimed in an interview with Spice FM on Friday morning that he dropped out of the University of Nairobi because he couldn't afford the tuition and needed to focus on other things.

"There is a document being shared that shows it was the issue of fees. There were a few units I did not complete but the ceremony of graduation is not what confers the knowledge to you," he said.


He noted that he would eventually go back to UoN to finish his studies in the near future.

"By the time I was able to afford the fee, I was too embarrassed and shy to go back to class. But that is something I will be able to go back and finish. About two or three units. There is no law that says you must bring a degree from UoN."

The UDA governor candidate for Nairobi, at the same time, defended his Team University degree, saying the document is legit.


He termed the ongoing probe on his degree as a political witch hunt which he said he will deal with in the same way.

CUE on Thursday revoked Sakaja's degree for the second time.
