EACC Sermons Chuka University VC After Allegations of Scoring Es in His A-levels
During the 7-hour grilling in the EACC offices in Isiolo, it emerged that most of his documents were not certified and he was unable to produce the original invitation letter to Russia.
Instead, he produced a copy of the letter which EACC suspect was forged, after a complainant produced the original letter that was not in Njoka’s name.
“The detectives are looking at the possibility of the copy he presented being a fake as they hold a complainant who had approached them has the original and what Njoka has is what he stole from him, and went to study with,” says a source.
Even as EACC looks into the matter, it has also emerged that Patrice Lumumba People’s Friendship University is yet to give a position on the matter.
The professor has now been directed to provide the original he used to go to Russia and the letter of scholarship he got from the Ministry of Education.
