“The Commission for University Education has, however, received material information about the authenticity of the degree you presented from Team University that will require further investigation to ascertain the validity of the said degree certificate. Consequently, in accordance to the CUE recognition procedures, we hereby revoke the recognition of your degree – Bachelor of Science in Management (External) from the aforementioned university,” the letter read in part.

Initially, the commission said that it has received information from the Ugandan government stating that he graduated from Teams University and that the degree certificate is genuine.
