Suit quizzing Joho’s university degree to start on Monday

By By WILLIS OKETCH | September 2nd 2013


A case in which the validity of Mombasa Governor Hassan Ali Joho’s university degree is being challenged is set to start on Monday.

Joho’s accuser Silas Make Otuke  has filed papers in court alleging that he had evidence that the Governor neither enrolled at Kampala University nor graduated with a degree and hence he is not qualified to be Governor.

The lawyers of both parties have said they are ready for the start of the case when Otuke embarks on a second attempt to bar Joho from this office this year.

Enough evidence

On the eve of the March 4 elections, Janet Mbete tried to bar Joho from seeking the post alleging that he had no degree but lost the bid.

But Joho’s lawyers led by Mr William Mogaka says they have enough evidence to prove their client attended Kampala University despite  claims  to the contrary.

Otuke filed a suit last week  seeking orders to have Joho’ election as Mombasa Governor be revoked, claiming there is no evidence the governor was a student at the university.

In  a rejoinder, Kampala University  has claimed Joho was a student at the institution and that his degree in Business Administration is genuine.

The university has also accused Otuke of tarnishing the name of the institution.
