118 PHD’s awarded in JKUAT 33rd graduation has been revoked by the Cs. Education after the CUE finds a lot of normalities involved in the process of awarding the certificates.
A report that was submitted to CS. Magoha indicates that the PHD students did not have supervisors to monitor their work effectively. It is also noted satellite campuses lacked resources to facilitate them to acquire the PHD’s.
Out of 118 PHD students, only 112 names were gazette in the graduation list, hence the quest of how 6 students were conferred yet they were not in the graduation list. This is one of the irregularities found in the report.
It’s now a matter of time as scrutiny will be undertaken upon every PHD holder to access whether they qualified or they will be forced to redo their research again. A big blow will be suffered by those who even graduated in the years 2014 since the CUE will review their works .
