UoN senate revokes Senator Mithika Linturi’s Law Degree

- in Education, News

The University of Nairobi (UoN) on Thursday revoked Meru Senator Mithika Linturi’s Law Degree on claims that he presented fake papers to the institution.

Back in June, the High Court blocked the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) from investigating the Jubilee Senator.

EACC had ordered for the probe of the then Igembe South MP, further requesting him to record a statement over claims of forging his academic papers at the Integrity Center, Nairobi.

EACC investigations had established that the candidate is not a graduate of the University of Nairobi and that he falsified declaration form to IEBC in 2013.

Based on this, the anti-graft body had even wanted Linturi barred from contesting in the August polls.
