DALC SCAM: TALKING ROUGH TO STUDENTS WHO QUESTION

We have highlighted the nature of DALC's scam and in detail explained how DALC prints certificates and pretends that these have been awarded by prestigious UK institutions based in CAMBRIDGE and OXFORD. Usually, these certifiactes have numerous mistakes such as:

  • Uniquely Kenyan spelling mistakes such as WANGUI instead of WAMBUI and ONDIEK instead of ONDIEKI. Only a Kenyan would make such spelling mistakes. For obvious reasons.
  • Wrong modules. The transcripts do almost always have a wrong tabulation of done modules and remaining modules.

OBORAH has been under much more scrutiny and we know of dozens of students who are trying to get their certificates and leave DALC before the house of cards collapses. Instead of perfecting his art (forgery) quietly. He has come out breathing fire in the latest notice.

I read it and marveled at the professor's foolishness. Highlighted in red are my favourite parts. I pity DALC students if the are told of for making noise about printing errors on certificates.


Title: MISTAKES ON UK DOCUMENTS

Some mistakes do occur on transcripts, certificates, IDs or Adm Letters.

These range from spelling mistakes related to names, modules etc or course/modules mismatch, etc.

There are also mistakes related to computer software while processing and moderating marks locally and international. This has resulted in alteration of marks previously received and made your transcript to change.

Software's blind programming mistakes are normal esp when we are using an online system which is re-programmed all the time for perfection.

These are normal as the UK bodies often outsource their printing and such mistakes can occur.

If such or related mistakes have occured on your UK documents, just photocopy and write at the back of the copy, the nature of the mistake and send it to your CM or directly to The Administrator at Westlands Campus for corrections to be forwarded to UK.

We will not tolerate students who talk ugly on simple matters of this nature which are mere human originated.

WARNING Isles International University

Isles International University

Please be advised that Isles International University is not an accredited institution operating in St. Kitts or Nevis. Further, there are no programmes of Isles International University accredited by the St. Christopher and Nevis Accreditation Board.


Another one of DALC ASSOCIATES has been busted. So what does Oborah say about this? WHY OH WHY is DALC always connected with institutions that are not properly accredited?

BEWARE!!

DALC SCAM: THE WARNING SIGNS YOU MAY HAVE OVERLOOKED part 3

Despite the obvious warning signs that should by now flashing red all over. Some people ignore their other sense and eventually get tricked by the DALC tricksters who masquerade as Customer Care Executives. He does not take it lightly when his staffs fail to recruit another Kenyan into the DALC fraud factory.

When you speak to the DALC staff, they all start by saying: DALC EDUCATION is a CAMBRIDGE/OXFORD learning center, (suitably failing to disclose which Cambridge/oxford). They then go to the merits of the DALC system which are massive and dwarf other institutions. You will then sit through a presentation that is so out of the ordinary it has you curious and warned at the same time.

OUTLANDISHNESS

DALC Education makes dozens of peculiar claims. Some of this will prick your ear as being too good to be true. Just like the pata potea who promises to double your $100,000 on the spot. But, you sit and listen as they pour more strange drivel into your ears.

Chequered Cambridge history, legendary institutions, 22nd century education, practical education, exemptions, experience recognitions, upgrading, fast track education and UK standards are some of the concepts that will be pile driven into you. The exaggerated nature of these claims has put many people off and saved careers, time and money. But alas, not all people have learned that when the deal is too good, then it aint good.

That is why we have pata potea and other short cons still in business even when their methods are well known by most 14 year olds.

OUTLANDISH CLAIMS THAT YOU MIGHT OVERLOOK AT DALC

  • Fast-track: DALC promises to help you acquire a degree in 18 months. That is not something I made up, it is a claim from an institution that has gotten a clean bill from the questionable Commission of Higher education. According to DALC EDUCATION, if you join the college with a mean grade of B plain (which has nowadays been stretched downwards all the way to C+ for love of money) they will send you to their second year. As a brilliant student, you will whizz through that in 9 months upon which they will send you to the final year. After a grueling 9 months, all that will remain is a thesis to a “major” university that DALC expects you to complete in a short 3 months. Total time spent 18 months!

  • UK everything: Walk to any DALC centre and believe it or not, the only thing they will do locally is teach you. Everything else comes from the UK. This is of course a similar tactic to that used by filthy backstreet counterfeiters who stick a tiny British flag on low quality electrical fittings which they sell expensively. Everybody knows that UK is home to the best electrical fittings….and Universities. So DALC sticks a British flag to their fraud by claiming that the admission letters, student badges, transcripts and certificates come from the UK. As if that was not enough, they claim that exams are marked in the UK and lecturers are also approved by the UK where the graduations are also held. All the above UK claims are lies. Try and verify with any UK government agency and see. As you will realize later, all those fancy “UK” logos are worthless on your “UK” certificate when you get to the real United Kingdom!

  • Credit for life experience: If you have worked for years and want a degree, do not go to other universities as they tend to be too rigid. Simply walk to DALC with you CV and they will grant exemptions for your efforts. DALC does not verify these claims, if they did, they would lose lots of potential customers and that is not a good thing. So, to keep all of us happy DALC EDUCATION pretends to send your (unverified) CV to the quality assurance commission (QAC_UK) which will subsequently award you credits for your experience. No tests, no questions. We recently saw Hersi of Sarova on TV explaining how the credit for experience system works at DALC.

 

  • 22nd Century: We have heard Humphrey Oborah, Hardeep Sandhu and Joachim Hans Kempe make these claims. During the last episodes of the class, Oborah kept talking about 22nd Century technology, thinking, system, education, bla bla bla. Anybody who believes these claims deserves to be laughed at because DALC are taking you money in this century and you are getting 22nd Century education. Where are you going to us it? This is a cheap trick to make you think that the only reason that DALC is weird is because it is light years ahead of the rest.

  • BioMedical Education: DALC touts their career forecasting system as prescription to all the career problems afflicting people in Africa. They can foretell the career of your young son or daughter 20 years in advance. They call this the bio-medical education but curiously, “ Bio Medical education is usually a medical seven year program leading to Bachelor of Science (B.S.) and Doctor of Medicine (M.D.) degrees”. We reckon Humphrey Oborah likes the sound of Biomedical Education and decided to stick with it even when it obviously means something else.

In closing, DALC Education has thrived on making unusual and very exaggerated statements on its abilities, connections and systems. These claims are used to lure unknowing Kenyans into the DALC net where ordinary courses are hyped , given strange labels and technology used to bamboozle people into thinking they are truly getting world class education.

DALC SCAM: THE WARNING SIGNS YOU MAY HAVE OVERLOOKED part 2

DALC SCAM: THE WARNING SIGNS YOU MAY HAVE OVERLOOKED part 1

No doubt that many people have been swindled by DALC and many more will be thanks to the never-ending support from KTN. A channel that is always supporting DALC. In retrospect, many people have looked back and wondered how on earth did I even walk into this con anyway? In the end, you feel wasted and regretful that your time and money had to go to DALC.

We are familiar with the whole DALC SCAM and here are some if the warning signs you may have overlooked on your way to getting conned.

CAMBRIDGE/OXFORD

These two are the world’s most prestigious universities and the first time you come across DALC, it is on a signboard that boldly has CAMBRIDGE/OXFORD and DALC somewhere in small print. In short, the whole thing looks like you are getting into a CAMBRIDGE/OXFORD CENTRE.

When you walk into the DALC offices, somebody hands you a CAMBRIDGE/OXFORD prospectus with some knightly logos and pictures of strange white people juxtaposed across some real CAMBRIDGE/OXFORD buildings. It feels real.

At this point, you are probably suspicious of this CAMBRIDGE/OXFORD thing because the deal is too good.

WARNING SIGNS YOU OVERLOOK
  • The overuse of the CAMBRIDGE/OXFORD theme in DALC. Have a look at the website, prospectus, newspaper adverts, TV infomercials etc and see that DALC liberally pastes these two names anywhere it can and makes it look as if they are partnering with some prestigious institutions.
  • CAMBRIDGE and OXFORD are competitors back home. They have a rivalry spanning centuries in sport, academics and debate. Why then are these two working under the DALC banner. They are both big enough to live independently and as far as I know, CAMBRIDGE and OXFORD are like OMO and ARIEL. And how did DALC get to collaborate with the two top most recognized universities? How comes DALC is not a KEELE/SUSSEX learning centre?
  • Why does DALC use so many images of white people in its promotional literature yet it is recruiting from Africans? The answer is obvious here; DALC wants you to make that link for yourself. Fool you into thinking you are getting into a proper international college.

If you questioned DALC carefully on the above issues, you would not end up losing money because the DALC PLOT will unravel right there.


As we now know, DALC misleads people using pictures such as:

  • Images CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY facilities, yet DALC claim to be partnering with CAMBRIDGE ASSOCIATION OF MANAGERS.

  • Pictures of OXFORD UNIVERSITY’S buildings yet the OXFORD ASSOCIATION OF MANAGERS that DALC collaborates with no longer exist. Plus it is not affiliated to OXFORD UNIVERSITY in any way.

  • Well known UK dons whose pictures DALC publishes in its brochures. This happens fraudulently as the people shown in the prospectus are not even aware of the use of their pictures. Recently, a Prof. Max Blythe was shocked to see his picture and signature on the DALC EDUCATION prospectus.

  • Obama. In the last episode of the CLASS, they flashed a picture of Obama(among other things). What exactly does that have to do with DALC or Education anyway?

Look out for more…

DALC SCAM: ANOTHER KENYAN JOINS KISUMU CENTRE


Students have been without a tutor for close to one month now but worry not. Another (unfortunate) Kenyan will now hastily dispense knowledge at Kisumu’s DALC centre. As usual the students have been told that they will be compensated for all the hours they have spent out of class. One thing for sure is that the classes will not start on 17th, Oborah will come and give a talk and convince you to wait till the beginning of the month.

SEE BELOW
Date Posted: 2009-08-10
Title: KISUMU REPLACEMENT FOR RUTH
MUNGAO

A replacement for the above will arrive 17th August 2009.

Classes lost will be recovered by taking more days/hours as usual.

In the meatime, students should attend other lessons/modules and work on
their projects.

Thanks for your patience.


PROF. HUMPHREY
P.O. OBORAH
HEAD OF MISSIONS, DALC EDUCATION
EAST AND CENTRAL AFRICAN
REGION


In the meantime, we welcome the replacement into the world of DALC. We hope that he/she leaves when they realize that what is happening at DALC is a hoax (if they still did not know). Here are some pointers from DALC tutors who have walked that road before:

In a short while, you will realize that DALC is a hoax because:

• The students projects are sent to UK for remarking yet the students receive Cambridge transcripts with exactly the same marks as you (the lecturer) awarded after the “UK” remarking.

• Nobody fails at DALC, if you are too strict. They call Oborah on you and you get fired. He says, “do not fail people!”

• Plagiarism is the norm, so don’t bother. The syllabus you are going to use is plagiarized anyway and students are never penalized for “dubbing” projects. Ask Jay Bhanderi.

• If you are too tired to mark, just award the marks hurriedly and no one will ever find out. You think Oborah reads all that stuff?

• You can make an extra coin by writing projects for students. You might frown at this but it will help you get through the tough days as the salary comes on the 11th of the month. After all, you are gonna mark those projects anyway.

• You will read this blog and other sites that doubt DALC’s authenticity.

• You will be ordered to teach things you did not study. If you studied business, expect to teach Public Relations, Project Management, International relations etc. Furthermore, you will teach postgraduate diploma students even though your qualifications are insufficient to do so.

• You will realize that at DALC its all about the profit, nothing else. Not standards or quality. All these are pretensions that are well hidden from outsiders.


Have a fruitful stay at DALC and ask about your predecessors. Why did they leave?

KTN KTN Supporting the DALC fraud factory as Kenyans lose money

KTN- Propping the DALC fraud factory as Kenyans lose money.

Money is everything! Well that is according to DALC EDUCATION'S kingpin Humphrey Oborah. We give it to him for operating one of the longest running cons in Kenya that has ensnared senior political figures in the country. DALC remains Oborah's money machine and he just loves the neat tricks where he pretends to be a professor and goes on TV to give Educational insights that should see Africa scale the heights that South Korea has. He loves to give that example by the way, he says the reason South K0rea have gotten where they are is because they have identified talented people.

Let me remind you that at DALC EDUCATION, you will go to class where a lowly motivated tutor will whizz you through an entire unit in as little as 4 hours. (That is how short it takes to complete a subject at DALC. Some tutors we know will prefer to do it all in one sitting. So that the subject that other institutions teach for a semester is completed in 4 hours. 240 minutes later and BOOM! You are an expert in Project assessment and evaluation.

This ensures that his wage bill is kept to a minimum as the tutors are paid by the hour.

So back to KTN- (your always entertaining, always informative and in this case always promoting DALC channel). The CLASS is a show where Oborah masquerades as an educational expert of repute who is licensed to thrill with advice to Africa, its citizens and governments. He does this from his imaginary pedestal aka Prof.Dr.EDU where he has his name occupying ¼ of the KTN screen with the title PROF. in bold. ..Or did I imagine that?

FOR EXAMPLE:


KTN- (your always entertaining, always informative and in this case always promoting DALC channel) advertised that the class would be covering the issue of tuition. Now that’s a genuine issue right there that needs tackling so KTN throws clips of Ongeri juxtaposed against school children, uniforms, books etc on the screen to highlight the evils of the Holiday tuition. That is a genuine issue to that point they call on the Fake Prof.Oborah to come and discuss the issue. What the heck does a Prof. of WIDU knows about education in the first place? Curse.

Just when you begin to think it’s an educational show, they bring in a con artist/tax evader the height of a giraffe. So, Oborah, steps in and weaves his jargoned nonsense around the issue using all sorts of spaghetti clichés we have heard before. Nothing concrete, after all this show is all foam and no beer. In no time, he speaks about brain neurons, spare capacity, talents, cognitive functions, low salaries etc without connecting them to the tuition menace.

The aim here is to befuddle you the viewer and leave you thinking that he is a real professor . A man of the books. But alas, in a flash, it’s all DALC.

He reverts to his usual DALC gimmicks that always involve him speaking about:
· Gifts and Talent testing
· Academic prescriptions
· 22nd (all the way to 25th) Century Education
· Practical Education
· UK, UK, UK
· Careers Forecasting
·
By this time, the ignorant masses will have forgotten what the main agenda was especially when he shows a successful DALC student who has gone out to achieve enormously (a degree). By then the holiday tuition is forgotten as the show closes with all of DALCS addresses on the screen.

Now, the fool that propping the CLASS at the KTN (the always entertaining, always informative and in this case always promoting DALC channel) would want us to believe that they have never noticed this. Someone forward him this post without the last paragraph. (Or replace fool with a politer word)

And somebody stop that Prof. with his fake English accent. It is totally killing me!

DALC EDUCATION's HIRING POLICY

DALC EDUCATION'S hiring policy is pretty unusual for an "international" organisation of its stature. If you get what I mean. Oborah still holds the reigns to pretty much everything and needs to because DALC is a secretive thing. It has serious flaws by design and is fraudulent in its operations. As a result, Humphrey Oborah prefers inbred staff.
What does that mean?
Well, you see. These days, everybody at DALC (almost) has been a student of DALC. Oborah says this is because he believes in his students' talents and gifts and trusts them to run DALC much better than outsiders. So tutors, administrators and librarians are ex or ongoing DALC students who can be trusted to keep the secrets. Further more, they are part of the system and therefore will never try to go against DALC EDUCATION.
This inbreeding would raise eyebrows at any institution moreso an academic one. DALC does not need outside interference, it has become like a cult. An educational cult whose adherents are taught not to trust any other systems but DALC Education. When they fail to gain acceptance to proper universities in Kenya and beyond. Oborah enrolls his students in "shady" unaccredited mills that give you a degree in a month or so. Well, depending on how much money you have. When these degrees are turned down by Kenyan employers, Oborah tells his students that the degrees are meant for big thinkers. People who will start their own businesses, entrepreneurs because the Kenya labour market is backward.
Why this inbreeding?
  • Most DALC students would not fit anywhere else due to their low grades. Remember, DALC will take you with an E as long as you claim that you were sick during your exams. Therefore, most DALC students will not easily get employed elsewhere.

  • DALC students are having a hard time securing employement in Kenya right now. Human Resources Managers do browse the internet and the number of sites exposing the DALC scam in Kenya exceeds 10 as we speak. Who would hire you? Therefore, more students are desperate.

  • To ease the pressure from parents who had hopes and aspirations that their children would get a proper UK degree and jobs at the world bank as Humphrey Oborah promises. He usually goes like "recently, a student of mine was headhunted by the world bank as a result of his practical projects, as we speak, barclays bank are looking to hire 32 students from DALC because of our very high UK standards". (Do not laugh, he has told people that many times). When these people cannot get jobs, Oborah hires them to ease the pressure from parents and students alike.

  • The DEGREE ILLUSION at DALC should be completed when you clear your diploma and are sent to a UK university to upgrade your qualifications. The problem is that it doesn't happen and some people really pressurise the man to get them a UK university as promised. He cannot deliver, if he did, there would be a list of people on his website who have successfully gone to proper UK universities from KEnya through DALC. Again to ease off that pressure, he hires that student and tells them that they are better than those useless degree holders from Kenya's public varsities.
If you are a DALC alumni who fancies a chance to become an inbred conman, DALC is hiring. Not just now, but throughout as Oborah needs to hire a fresh lot of students so that DALC seems like a reputable college whose graduates get jobs (in the same college). Once hired, you will be taught to lie and fired later on for non performance.
Have a look at the recent memo and good luck. You must be a DALC student for obvious reasons. It seems that DALC cannot attract outsiders anymore. APPLY NOW??

DALC NOW PLANS TO GO UPCOUNTRY

Early in 2008, DALC EDUCATION went on an expansion spree that resulted in centres all over the RiftValley in Kitale, Kericho and Nakuru. Oborah said that this was intentioned to bring CAMBRIDGE & OXFORD qualifications closer to the people. This was a consistent theme whenever Oborah and DAVY Koech went to open a new centre. He was doing it for the poor, ignored rural masses. He even lowered the school fees and gave discounts and offers. (DIPOMA MILLS OFTEN GIVE DISCOUNTS TO LURE YOU INTO JOINING) He threw everuthing at it and went about the new campuses with lots of zeal.

Most of the upcountry folks were dazzled that this prof. who spoke in a strange English-accent had suddenly realised how important they were. He said the governemnt was not doing enough so he was taking it upon himself to take Kenya's education a step higher. People fell for his lines and usual career forecasting-practical education nonsensense. Visit Kericho, Nakuru and Kitale and find unknowing Kenyans who will proudly tell you that they are studying at a "Cambridge& Oxford" campus .

Well, Oborah had no intention to help Kenyans. It has never been his plan to help anybody. The whole point was to help himself to your money while giving you a worthless DIPLOMA in the process. You see, NAIROBI,KISUMU and MOMBASA were no longer yielding as much as they used as more people were getting wind of DALC's dubious nature and staying away.

It is also a fact that people in these big towns are bound to spent lots of time online and will get to read about DALC SCANDALS on some online forum and then email the same information to a friend or two. In short, Oborah was looking at other revenue streams and realised that UPCOUNTRY was untapped.

It is much easier to convince the farmers in Kitale and Nakuru that their children are getting quality education through DALC even though they are going to take courses like Wireless Communications without an ounce of equipment.

This year, things got worse for Humphrey as the whispers grew louder and turned into shouts. People are openly questioning DALC EDUCATION ALTERNATIVE EDUCATION. You see, DALC is like alternative medicine. They may have people who claim to have been healed but overall, there are thousands who feel cheated and misled on the whole thing. As a result, Oborah is now looking for greener pastures. KITALE, KERICH AND NAKURU are no longer attractive as the bad news (also known as the TRUTH) has already reached the people.
People who were promised degrees have finished their diplomas and Oborah is now elusive whenever they ask about the degree. Kenyans who paid their monies but pulled out immediately are still chasing their refunds to this day. Those who attended one of those DALC talks Oborah arranged to clear the air were left with more questions than answers especially when he plainly refused to answer questions on DALC's credibility. Choosing to belittle those who questioned him as if they were complete idiots. He said,

"If you do not understand DALC system, then you are still in the past. You need to modernise your thinking about Education."

KISII, KAKAMEGA , MERU , GARISSA and SOUTH COAST are next. Oborah is working to open branches in these places where he can trick a few more Kenyans before the law catches up with him. He will make a few more millions before the DALC SCANDALS catch on in the new areas. By the time people realise that they will not be getting proper degrees and that their papers are not recognised elswhere, Humphrey Oborah will be laughing all the way to the bank.
Soon, CAMBRIDGE & OXFORD students will be walking the streets of Kakamega where they will proudly show off their UK qualifications to unsuspecting villagers as proof of how well learned they are. In the meantime, we suspect that Oborah's pockets will be well lined in the process.

We have it that he is not interested in big towns where people might ask all sorts of questions. If you did not know , DALC hates questions. If you ask too many, Oborah calls you a troublemaker and might throw in idiot for effect. He wants to open new branches where he can go about the business of dishing diplomas in tranquil.

WARN your upcountry folks people. Tell them that the real Cambridge & Oxford would never open a campus in Garissa or Kisii. They know very well that all that glitters is not gold. So they should think twice when a "UK" education centre opens up near them.

DALC SCAM: DALC USES UK DON'S PICTURE WITHOUT HIS KNOWLEDGE

DALC EDUCATION is a total hoax. I don't how many things about DALC are true but the lies keep showing everywhere you look. Take alook at this scan from DALC's prospectus.

http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_jdDLiMqdyV8/SYR896To9UI/AAAAAAAAABM/hEU1yUkiUmM/s1600-h/dadu_html_349ff797.png

That page appears in one of the DALC prospectus and shows a Professor Max Blythe welcoming you into OXIM and wishing you success in your career. THE DOCUMENT even bears a signature thats supposed to convince you that MAX BLYHTE totally endorses OXIM-DALC courses. Guess what, Prof. Max Blythe did not know of his (alleged) association with DALC until he stumbled into this blog. The perplexed Blythe said,
"I presented graduates with degree diplomas at a convocation in
Oxford in October 2006, which was the full extent of my brief connection with
OXIM, as I resigned rather soon afterwards for reasons you will appreciate. My
connections with OXIM were fully severed then
.

In the same letter, Prof. Blythe adds,

"No, I did not know that DALC claimed an association with me of any kind. The inclusion of a photograph of me and my signature in its prospectus is preposterous. I have never been contacted by DALC, never had a connection of any kind with this Organisation, and consequently the use of my name and signature in its prospectus is not authorised. "

So clearly, DALC thought that Blythe wouldn't find out and that you would believe the whole UK-Education thing is legit because they got pictures of white men in the prospectus. Has the CHE ever checked that out? Or are they as gullible as the Kenyans they are supposed to protect. More is going to follow.

This is another one of Oborah's lies that adds to a long list including.

  1. CAM& OXIM Accredited in the UK
  2. QAC is an accreditation body
  3. Oborah is a Cambridge scholar
  4. Oborah is DFID scholarship receipient
  5. Oborah went ot the UK on a DAAD scholarship
  6. Oborah is a DR.
  7. Oborah is a Prof
  8. Oborah pays taxes
  9. Oborah can predict careers
  10. Oborah worked at the world gift talent center
  11. IIU and EBS Are accredited in the UK

DALC SCAM: OBORAH HIRES A NEW ASSISTANT

Humphrey Oborah, DALC's head of mission has announced changes. Finally, he has found (read conned) another Kenyan to slave for a couple of months for him and raise the expectations. Take note that he is always making these sorts of announcements as the staff turnover at DALC is sky high.

 

Mr. Eric Opondo may be convinced that he is working for a worthy institution but he will realize the truth in his own time (like we all did). He will find that time spent at DALC is useless in your CV if you want to build a career but in the meantime; Oborah will use him and abuse him like an old pair of ill fitting shoes. Mr. Opondo Eric, you might not know but in the last ten months, your position has moved from Mike to Frank to Milcah and now you. That gives you an idea of how quickly people get tired of DALC?

 

Does this man have any experience in forgery (of signatures and logos) because we think Oborah needs one? Can he falsify the TAX RETURNS because DALC does not pay taxes? Is he able to make employee statutory deductions en route to NHIF and NSSF? Can he confidently lie to students with a straight face and tell them that the UK "examiners" are busy marking their papers?

 

If he can, then he is Oborah's soul mate not to mention tribes' man. Don't tell me Oborah did not consider that. He loves people he can trust (his secrets are too many) and lighten his load. We bet he took you out and blew lots of money to impress you. Once he has you hooked, he will abuse you.  You will remember this word. ABUSE.

Title: NEW APPOINTMENTS

Mr. Eric Opondo has been appointed the new Finance and Admin Manager.

Eric has immense experience in finance and administration having worked at Standard Chartered Bank, Barclays and American Insurance Group, all spanning over 13 years.

The position of Head of Missions will go alongside the holder as the institution re-structures for the new role it is expected to play.



PROF. HUMPHREY P.O. OBORAH
HEAD OF MISSIONS, DALC EDUCATION
EAST AND CENTRAL AFRICAN REGION

NOW Mr. OPONDO, read the one below. Almost one year ago the same thing happened. So do not feel all that important. Only one person remains in the list below, Patrick Makanga and the only reason he is in there is because nobody else will hire him. Not even Faith Kinyae, she says he is Oborah's employee.

The rest all left, resigned and not fired for xyz reasons that your boss imagines. Have a happy time soiling your nice CV with the DALC experience. Perhaps you could use a couple of con tricks in the future.

Remember even the pyramid schemes had well trained and competent managers.

PROF. DR. HUMPHREY OBORAH
HEAD OF MISSIONS

Mr. Opondo had better be very cautious when dealing with Oborah. I couldn't help admire his tight cv but tell me somebody:

  • ·         Why go to DALC if you have such an impressive CV? You could find a bigger company to work for instead.
  • ·         Isn't going to DALC a backward step for Opondo if he has worked at established global companies such as Stanchart and AIG?
  • ·         Why would a guy of his stature work at DALC?
  • ·         He is an MBA who is pursuing a PhD, very unusual. People like him do not pursue academic careers. I smell a lie here. Which university has he enrolled at?


iS THE HIRING OF ERIC OPONDO ANOTHER TRICK?

DALC SCAM: THE BIGGEST BACKSTREET COLLEGE IN KENYA

I always been fascinated with stories about backstreet colleges and how they
con innocent Kenyans!! I had very little knowledge that there is one bigger
than such 30 of them.

DALC college is not a college but a Money Minting Machine.

Here are the Facts.

1. The owner of the College is a Self acclaimed Professor! Prof. O. This guy
is a former Teacher at Brookhouse school and has no PhD or No scholarly
Publications to claim such a title that will always see on KTN TV. How does
he become a Professor then?

2. DALC college teaches everything and after it gets a potential
student, It simplies hires a tarmacking Graduate and assigns her /him the
Student to teach. according to the Principal, any graduate is able to
Think outside the box and should use the Internet to develop his/her
syllabus. Imagine Medicine and Surgery, Engineering is also taught their!!

3. Curriculum, while there is criticism, about 8-4-4 curriculum, Dalc
college has no Developed curriculum for Teaching any subject and thinks
the Inernet has all those!! While Universitities have Senate that Develops
and Reviews curriculum as KIE does for schools and colleges, Dalc has none
and Prof. O. thinks he has a monopoly of knowledge to do that alone.

4. Dalc confers Degrees, awards diploma and issues Certificate without a
legal Charter and will always claim collaborations but with who?

5. When one watches the " Prof. " on KTN defend his Logics, one wonders
which education Philosophy does this gentleman subscribe to!!

If there are Students from DALC on this Forum, they can critique the
statement and Prove the words. I can defend the said fact if The principal
of Dalc calls me to prove my allegations!! Even if he has the Orthodox
Blessings of Commission for Higher education, the Law will catch up with
him!! Remember TRACK IT. Its now history.

DALC SCAM: THE LIES ARE IN DALC's PROSPECTUS

DALC'S (Digital Advisory and Learning Centre) LIES IN THEIR WORDS AND PICTURES

You will find the lies all over DALC's (Digital Advisory and Learning Centre) literature. It doesn't matter what to the people who print these lies that they have given all the evidence of their congame on prospectus. Let us look at the yellow prospectus BELOW.

THE COVER

This prospectus is printed on heavy glossy paper and is definitely quality in execution but falls flat face-in the mud when put under some scrutiny.

CAMBRIDGE


  • This page has a picture of Dr Michael Gagne who is the alleged Vice President of CAM even though he is a Malaysia based executive coach of Canadian extraction. So there is absolutely nothing English or Cambridge about him. Take note of this phrase, "Cambridge Association of Managers decided to offer diploma programmes especially to overseas students." So the prestigious CAM is not interested in passing their expertise to the English but prefers to work with those outside UK especially Africa and Asia. Not the European Union or North America but 3rd world countries where laws are bent and it is not so easy to verify facts. Convenient.


OXFORD



  • The page introduces Oxford Association of Managers and goes on to say that the like legendary academic giant is teaching internationally accepted qualification overseas. This is stretching the truth by a mile as OXIM is a diploma mill established at around 2002 with absolutely zero facilities, no faculty and no real accreditation.

THE FAKE BOOK


  • Oborah likes to pull this book out when asked about the recognition of the CAM/OXIM courses. So a book recognizes the courses or what? Let me ask you to put a little common sense into play here. If I published a directory of schools and listed some questionable institutions alongside the genuine ones, would that make the fake ones genuine? This is the most tired explanation as the same book advertises Irish International University courses on it inside cover.


HOW MANY COURSES DOES OXIM OFFER?

  • According to the phony book that Oborah uses to vilify your perception of education, OXIM should offer Graduate Diploma in Management and Postgraduate Diploma in management. That's a pretty brief profile considering there are Actuarial Science, Legal studies, environmental studies, international trade, pre medicals, pre engineering students in DALC (Digital Advisory and Learning Centre) holding OXIM admission letters. In a nutshell, Oborah uses the OXIM letterhead to start courses (whose content he copy/pastes from genuine universities websites) that even the fake OXIM doesn't list.


A PICTURE IS WORTH


  • Smile at the Camera and snap. CAM/OXIM through DALC (Digital Advisory and Learning Centre) have identified Kenyans of repute and awarded them sham awards such as "Chartered Fellow" and then use the photographs of the same to net more Kenyans. It creates an impression that DALC (Digital Advisory and Learning Centre) is associated with these people and is a reputable organization. Is there a West Bromwich Association of Managers (WBAM) that is willing to give an ignorant politician an award?

CRAZIEST ADMISSION POLICY

Laughable that the Institution's Admission policy says clearly that it cares for those who were "rudely" kicked out of Public universities, lacked school fees or were sick during exams. How does DALC (Digital Advisory and Learning Centre) know that you performed poorly because of sickness? Isn't this a foolish way of saying that DALC doesn't care about your O level grades (you can claim illness, lack of fees or hurting your finger on the exam day anyway) and will admit anyone. Show me any institution with such an audacious admission policy and I'll show you a diploma mill.


WHAT QUALITY?

The lies in this page:

  • A centre is inspected by Cambridge to ensure mission and vision is adhered to. ( How do you measure that?)

  • Majority of teachers' posses Masters and Doctorate Degree (How many genuine PhD holders would work at DALC?)

  • Teachers resumes are sent to UK for approval (How comes guys get hired on the spot?)

  • Curriculum is reviewed annually (Ok. Try and remember that.)

  • Cambridge and Oxford experts visit twice per year (Yeah?)

  • No plagiarism (This coming from a man who has copy/pasted dozens of prospectus from genuine universities is imaginative)

  • Final certificates come from CAM/OXIM (Word on the street is that they are printed in Nairobi's Industrial area)

THE SCAMMERS


This is a picture of the International scammers plus a few innocent Kenyans of repute tricked to pose in this picture.


From left, Nick Redding (Australian who was introduced as Cambridge Director), Edwin Varo (Malysian trainer introduced as a Professor at Cambridge), H. Sandhu (OXIM,CAM, EBS, IIU diploma mills owner. Kingpin of the scam) and Jean Clutton Williams (In a pink dress, OXIM chairlady)

Nick Redding is an Australian who lives and works down under. As a matter of fact, there is no position of Director in the CAM structure. My bet is that the lies get you the scammers all mixed up and then they have a Director, Chairman, Chancellor, CEO and President in the same organization.

INDUSTRIAL AREA PRODUCTIONS


Is that QAC logo on the sample certificates?? Oh no!!! Is Oborah going to explain that with his usual yidi yada about working with QAC for exemption purposes yet it is in all the certificates he prints?

Above is all the evidence that you are getting a UK qualification if you are foolish to believe it. If you ever go into a college and they show you sample certificates and admission letters please turn back and walk away. Diploma mills tend to have a universal trait of displaying the sample Diploma/Degree certificates. Go to the UoN law school or the medical school or the KU or even KIM and see that they forgot to display sample certificates. DALC just goes further and boldly states that even the ID's come from UK. These are printed locally at Industrial area so wake up and smell the coffee.

THE IRISH INTERNATIONAL UNIVERSITY GRADUATION

The victims who paid to go and graduate in UK at a hall that Oborah and cronies hired from the University of Cambridge. They love to pose for the pictures and later insert Cambridge University in every caption wherever the pictures are published. If a Nairobi Business College hired a hall at the University of Nairobi and held a graduation ceremony there, would be the Grandaunts' be University of Nairobi alumni?

BACK PAGE

All the fake institutions that DALC brings to you on the back page alongside the fake accreditation body owned by Sandhu- Quality Assurance Commission (see logo on the right).

DALC OBORAH: Dishonest FAKE PROFESSOR

When we worked at the DALC head office, it was the norm to lie. We were taught to lie to students, staff and DALC's suppliers. Oborah/Faith Kinyae usually parked her car well hidden at the back and locked herself in the office. Strict instructions were given to the staff not to disclose their whereabouts.

This was done to evade:
  • Suppliers of stationnery, flowers, computer parts etc and other people who were owed by DALC
  • Students and parents who had discovered it was a scam (mostly after trying without success to get into UK universities) and were looking for Oborah
  • Students in trouble with employers after their bogus Irish International University Degrees were rejected
  • Staff who had been fired and whose salaries had not been paid.
All these are consistent with people that are dishonest to the core and dont take our word for it, someone who was cheated by DALC wrote an email as you can see below.

Hi,
I came across this blog .and read most of the threads.My encounter with DALC is one that will stick in my mind for long .
I supplied goods to this Oborah  in his chiromo campus  but had a hard time before i could be paid and the worst thing he never settled the whole bill.Despite making numerous trips to his office  and calls i finally gave up .I left it to God I was forced to take a loan to settle my suppliers.The man is by all means dishonest and unkind.

DALC EDUCATION TAX EVASION SCAM

It was all over the media a month or so ago. I saw the ads even On DALC's media of choice KTN and Standard. Do you remember the KRA Ads counting down to the number of days people had to submit their tax returns? Did the DALC management duo of Humphrey Peter Oborah and Faith Kinyae read them? The deadline to submit tax returns elapsed and DALC did not comply. Well, the staff at DALC did not fill any tax returns because as we all know, the staffs are damn sure that their PAYE deductions are not submitted. In short, DALC EDUCATION acts as if taxes are for the fools and they do not fall in the fools' category. Someone should be in jail as we speak but THIS IS KENYA.

 

Now, if a company of DALC's stature can evade taxes for all these years, what the heck are the KRA people doing? How much taxes have they missed out? Someone should be in jail as we speak but THIS IS KENYA.

 

If we give an average of sh.4000 as the expected PAYE multiplied by 60 staff it amounts to a whooping 240,000 per month. In one year, DALC will have cheated the taxman more than sh. 2,880,000 in income PAYE alone. Now this is a rough estimate that is definitely on the lower side as the majority of the staff are earning >35,000 which will definitely mean that their deductions are more than the sh. 4000 we have used in this estimation. Someone should be in jail as we speak but THIS IS KENYA.

 

How about the income tax that DALC ought to pay as a corporate? We saw that revenues last year were in the 400,000,000 in my earlier post and I'd bet that the net profit was half that amount since we know for sure that no monies are remitted to Cambridge or Oxford as DALC states. The hefty amount DALC Education charge for examinations is simply another avenue for DALC to fleece people some more money. At a rate of 30%, the corporate tax that DALC Education should have paid this year could not have been less than sh.50, 000,000. That's a lot of money but I am thinking they must have declared losses so as to avoid paying this tax. Ladies and gentlemen, DALC is not only cheating innocent Kenyans but the KRA too. Someone should be in jail as we speak but THIS IS KENYA.

I am not sure about the VAT on services rendered. That should be deductable from the fees students pay but maybe it might need a tax expert to deal with that. Nevertheless, DALC makes sure that it keeps all the evidence of transactions and you have nothing. How many people feel that this is the correct way of doing business? Even an airline gives you some confirmation of your payment at some point. Despite the fact that, that you can book online these days.  At DALC EDUCATION, they don't give you an admission letter, no receipt and no certificate. Records of the transactions are held in their server (under their control), admission letters and certificates come from currently non-existent UK institutions. Someone should be in jail as we speak but THIS IS KENYA.

 

I doubt if KRA goes through the payment records held in the DALC server and I am sure when it comes to the worst, Oborah will simply make backups of the payment records and format the disks. Meanwhile, DALC students are made to believe that this is the way of the future. Everything must be online. To some extent that is true but remember all that information including payment confirmations are held and controlled by a fraudster. So the real reason for Oborah getting all the transactions online is to minimize exposure and make it easy to cover his tracks. Someone should be in jail as we speak but THIS IS KENYA.

 

All the stuff he speaks about going into the 22nd Century with a server based system and online transaction is nonsense. He doesn't want anyone going through his receipt book or ETR records and asking hard questions about revenues, profits & taxes. Someone should be in jail as we speak but THIS IS KENYA.

 

My take is that this matter may have been solved the Kenyan way and things left as they were. Or is KRA totally inept despite being tipped a number of times about the fraudulent activities at DALC EDUCATION. When will KRA take action if they truly mean it when they say that "Kulipa Ushuru ni Kujitegemea". Or is this Ushuru going to a fat cat in the KRA? Someone should be in jail as we speak but THIS IS KENYA.

 

I totally refuse to believe that a company that had over 100 staff at one point can fail to remit PAYE without a finger being raised. I'd rub salt into the fleshy wound by adding that when you work at DALC EDUCATION. NSSF,NHIF numbers are useless as Oborah and Faith Kinyae just love the idea of not submitting the these mandatory requirements. Someone should be in jail as we speak but THIS IS KENYA.

 

After all, DALC is Cambridge and Oxford in Kenya. Believe IT. THIS IS KENYA.
