An arrest warrant has been issued for Nairobi Senator Johnson Sakaja after the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) announced that he was a suspect in an international criminal syndicate. This news came at the same time that the scandal involving his “fake” degree brought in authorities from Uganda.

On Thursday evening, the head of the DCI, George Kinoti, made the statement that Mr. Sakaja and officials of Team University in Uganda, from which the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) candidate for the race for governor of Nairobi claims to have obtained a degree, are suspects in an international organized crime syndicate.

We will not surrender our capital city to frauds. We will involve all international agencies in investigating and prosecuting anyone involved in academic fraud

Kinoti told Nation

The dramatic escalation of a row over Mr. Sakaja’s eligibility to run for governor of Nairobi appears to have followed the intervention of the Ugandan Education minister, Janet Museveni. Ms. Museveni reportedly sent government officials to seek evidence of Mr. Sakaja’s time at the institution, which led to the dramatic escalation of the row.
