Warning to universities 'selling' degrees to politicians

Kenyan Education Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i wants universities selling degrees to politicians de-registered. He said the government is planning a major shake-up in higher education, including a crackdown on private universities, from next year, writes Lewis Nyaundi for The Star.

The University of Nairobi recently revoked Meru Senator Mithika Linturi's law degree for using fake admission papers during his enrolment. Linturi has moved to court to challenge the matter.

"I am happy now that councils have begun to bite and strip people of their degrees. We would like to see more universities do that together with the Commission for University Education and the Education Ministry. We will take away their letters of interim authority," Matiang’i said during a recent graduation ceremony.
