Blatant Inoorero varsity desperations after fake degree drama
By Henry Kuttingham
After media reports that Inoorero University, owned by Tetu Member of Parliament FT. Nyammo, was offering’ non-existent’ law degrees, the administration is desperately up in arms in redeeming the already tainted image of the institution.
In a full page advert last week in one of the local dailies the private university claimed that the Bachelor of law degrees was presented to and approved by the Commission of Higher Education (CHE) and that they had been advised that the same had been forwarded to the Council for Legal Education (C LE) for accreditation saying stints that the law degrees offered were flawed was not true.
Mid Last week a section of students at the Parklands based institution were still demanding answers from the administration for lying to them that they are authorized to offer Bachelor of Law degrees and going ahead to deceitfully offer it even after the institutions’ bid to get out of the matter through newspaper advertorials seemed to have hit a dead end.
One of the students, Lucy Wangari who spoke to the media said that she learnt that the university was offering the course via a newspaper advert.
Lucy said that upon applying for the course, she received an acceptance letter and joined the institution a few months ago. However after one semester, the Bachelor of Law student amongst others found out that the university is only accredited to offer law diplomas.
It was reported that the students went ahead to confront the administration but were promised that their credits would be transferred to Mount Kenya University despite the fact that MKU do not accept credit transfers from Inoorero according to our sources.
The students claimed that they had paid school fees amounting to over Ksh.70, 000 and yet were not sure whether they were still going to further their studies after allegedly being conned by the institution that is struggling to garner reputation amongst private colleges and universities in Kenya today after changing status from the ineffective Kenya School of Professional Studies (KSPS) in 2009 to another money minting debaucher dubbed Inoorero later on.
Our efforts to get in touch with the vice chancellor’s office over the matter were fruitless since our phone calls went unanswered and texts never replied.
