The Commission for University Education (CUE) has withdrawn the letter revoking recognition of Nairobi Senator Johnson Sakaja's degree from Team University pending further investigations.

This comes after Sakaja filed a contempt of court case against CUE Chairman Prof. Chacha Nyaigoti-Chacha for alleged violation of court orders.

In documents filed in court, Sakaja claimed that Prof. Chacha had shown "contempt, disregard and disobedience of court orders" that temporarily suspended CUE's revocation of recognition of his degree by addressing through the media on Friday, June 17.

"On the even date, 17th June, 2022 at 7:00 p.m, the Contemnor herein one PROF. CHACHA NYAIGOTI-CHACHA who is the Chairman of the Board of the Respondent, went live on all major National Televisions and other media fora wherein he issued a press statement whose contents were a mockery and contemptuous of the Court’s orders earlier served upon the Respondent," reads court documents.

"THAT later, on 20th June, 2022 at around 5:00 p.m. the Contemnor again released a signed press statement to all media houses , wherein he ostensibly made reference to the Applicant, the orders of status quo ante , and the court process in general."

In a response to the case filed by Sakaja, CUE now says that the application by the Senator has been overtaken by events adding that there is no basis for the court to exercise its jurisdiction over the said matter.

"The respondent wishes to confirm to the court that the substrum of this suit being the 14 June 2022 from which review is sought is hereby withdrawn pending further investigations by the respondents -CUE which investigations are ongoing,"reads court papers.
