The Commission for University Education (CUE) has said it will investigate 118 PhD degrees issued by the Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture at their recent graduation ceremony on June 21, 2019.
The institution came under fire from the public after it emerged that 118 students graduated with PhDs.
The issue of authenticity of the degrees came into play, with some stating that the university cannot issue that number of PhDs, yet there’s no notable innovation it has done.
It also emerged that one professor had supervised more than 10 PhD students in the School of Entrepreneurship, Procurement and Management against CUE requirement of three students per a lecturer.
Responding to the outburst on social media, JKUAT responded by asserting that they followed due process and all degrees issued were meritoriously earned.
