Meru Senator Mithika Linturi moved to court on Monday to challenge UoN’s decision to de-register him, just days to his graduation with a law degree.
The university revoked the degree after claims he presented fake papers of admission in 2014.
Linturi says trouble started when his political opponents swore they would do anything to ensure he was not on the ballot for the August 8 general election.
He mentioned former Meru Governor Peter Munya and politician Mugambi Imanyara and said EACC took over the political war.
The legislator’s lawyer Tom Ojienda said he was summoned by the anti-graft agency for investigations on May 30.
“EACC had conclusively investigated the allegations that Linturi’s self-declaration forms for 2013 elections, filed with IEBC, were falsified,” court papers state.
