Senator Linturi wins case against UoN

Meru Senator Mithika Linturi has won a legal battle against the University of Nairobi which deregister him as a law student.

He was deregistered last year following allegations that he used fake academic papers to get admitted for the degree course.

The High Court on Friday ordered the university to award the senator his law degree and reinstate him as a postgraduate student.

The court said actions by the university of deregistering and discontinuing the senator from the programme and studies at the law school and stopping him from participating from in the graduation ceremony held in December last year are “unconstitutional, illegal, unreasonable, irrational and procedurally unfair”.
