Questioning DALC (Digital Advisory and Learning Centre)

Students and staff at DALC (Digital Advisory and Learning Centre) know that all claims of DALC’s illegitimacy tend to be brushed aside as the work of competitors. Graffins College, Computer Pride among others are usually listed as the ones who prompt these attacks on DALC. That of course is another one of Oborah’s lame lies. This blog is written by and for people who have been victims of the institution’s elaborate and well devised con. Silence is what keeps the biggest education con in Kenya going and those who speak out will help stop this from going on. We will lift the veil to some of the secrets and intellectual make-believe that DALC (Digital Advisory and Learning Centre) disseminates.

This blog is for:

  • · Those who studied at DALC (Digital Advisory and Learning Centre) and now realize that the Diplomas they hold are from institutions (Cambridge Association of Managers and Oxford Association of managers) that are really Diploma mills.

  • · Parents and Guardians who paid for their children to get valid UK qualifications but were conned of their money by DALC (Digital Advisory and Learning Centre).

  • · Students who went further and upgraded their qualifications with phony Irish International University and European Business school Cambridge and now hold useless degree certificates.

  • · Staff who work at DALC (Digital Advisory and Learning Centre) 12hrs daily under stressful conditions, with no leave, NHIF, NSSF and still have to wait to the 15th every month to get paid.
  • · Authorities that are abetting this facade including the Ministry of Education( allowing an international diploma mill CAM/OXIM/IRISH INTERNATIONAL UNIVERSITY/EUROPEAN BUSINESS SCHOOL CAMBRIDGE to operate n the country through DALC), Commission for Higher Education (giving DALC an accreditation certificate and sending a representative to the graduations), Kenya Revenue Authority( for not investigating DALC’s tax evasion and failing to notice that a company with 100+ employees does not remit PAYE, VAT and INCOME TAX accordingly, Ministry of Labour ( For allowing the institution to breach all labour laws including non payment of wages, termination dues, overtime, statutory deductions etc
  • · The press who still continue to run the adverts from DALC (Digital Advisory and Learning Centre) including half hour prime time TV documentaries and front page advertisements thus giving DALC (Digital Advisory and Learning Centre) some sort of legitimacy it does not deserve.

  • · Those who worked at DALC (Digital Advisory and Learning Centre) and were /shouted/chased/humiliated/insulted when they were fired for flimsy reasons such discovering the truth or being a threat by being too intelligent.

  • · The people with queries about the institution but will not dare speak out as DALC (Digital Advisory and Learning Centre) will (allegedly) have you arrested by Parklands Police and locked up for a long long time.

  • · Anybody who thinks that DALC sends projects and then receives results from UK.

  • · The gullible who think that they are getting a worthy diploma/degree through Cambridge/Oxford local learning centre, DALC (Digital Advisory and Learning Centre) we will present the facts and leave the judgment to you.

  • · Those of you who wonder why all DALC (Digital Advisory and Learning Centre) gets these days is bad press. Well stick around longer and you will realize why.

  • · The few female employees (librarians, centre administrators) who were sexually harassed by the Head of Missions and then dismissed when they did not yield.

  • · Dr. Davy Koech for further tarnishing his already muddy name by publically being installed as the (Sham) Chairman of the DALC (Digital Advisory and Learning Centre) non existent board of directors.

  • · Well known dignitaries, academics and politicians who were duped into attending and speaking at DALC (Digital Advisory and Learning Centre) events thinking it was for a good cause only to have their pictures used in marketing material to net more gullible Kenyans.

  • · Those who do not know that Oborah was awarded the cavalier of hope medal and professorship by European Academy of Informatization a dubious institution that is not a University of college of any sort and that his 18 Doctoral research papers cannot be traced any where online.

  • · DALC(Digital Advisory and Learning Centre) proprietors who rob the poor to build multimillion castles in Nairobi and Kisumu, drive top of the range cars and take exotic holidays at the expense of students’ futures and careers.

  • · DALC (Digital Advisory and Learning Centre) owners who
i) Think that they have totally ran away with it because politicians and some corrupt ministry of education people are on their side and so they rampantly continue to propagate their con to all parts of Kenya.

ii) Who print certificates, letters, and transcripts locally and lie to students that they have recognized UK qualification and charge exorbitant fees for examinations to be marked by a non existent UK body.

iii) Never offer meaningful explanations to queries and resort to all sorts of fallacious arguments that insult people’s intelligence.

iv) Knowingly misled students to enroll in a “fairly good university “Irish International University whose degrees are now not worth the paper they are printed on. Further, they recommended a better more expensive university “European Business School Cambridge” that is ironically owned by the same scammers who run Irish International University.

v) Spread all sorts of pig headed lies mostly invented by Humphrey Oborah. These lies include G8 aid for Africa to DALC (Digital Advisory and Learning Centre), Genopuls Medical Education, Genopuls Clinics in Kenya, 2,000,000 Euros to build university, 50 acres of land on Mombasa/Thika road to build university, Bio Medical Education, Career and Talent forecasting, sh. 300 million grant to build university from CAM/OXIM, encounter with Graffins College director at CAM offices in the UK, year 2008 scholarships for the needy, Oborah’s DFID/DAAD scholarship to study in the UK, income tax returns, nhif payments, bogus FCAM awards to unknowing citizens including Manu Chandaria, foreign conmen who attend graduation ceremonies posing as distinguished academics, imaginary exDALC students now studying at Cambridge/Oxford universities, scholarships for excellent students , QAC-UK, competitors/fired staff/lazy students inventing bad stories about DALC, Degree in 3 months for those with work experience, fees reduction by foreign partners, bachelors / masters degree in 3 months, PhD through DALC, over 100 courses offered, UK graduations , British Qualifications Book etc

vi) Have created an online system ostensibly to improve efficiency but in reality a perfect exit strategy. Students now get receipts, admission letters on mail. In addition, students do CATS online, submit projects online. The real reason for the online system is to cut the paper trail and enable DALC (Digital Advisory and Learning Centre) owners get away incase of things come to a head. All they need to do is shut the server and disappear. Poof! All the evidence will be on their server.

  • · Those good people who would like to spread the word and halt the scam before it affects a relative, friend, employees, neighbours, siblings.


  • im a student at dalc and this seems to be true because things are done secrectly.

    January 13, 2009 at 1:17 PM

  • all seem to be unraveling as i have long suspected why for example KIM, GRAFFINS et al are not subject of credibility why just dalc there is something fundamentally wrong!

    January 14, 2009 at 5:54 PM

  • How comes DALC keeps popping up whenever issues of credibility are mentioned. Surely, there are too many colleges for DALC to be constantly mentioned. There has to be some truth behind these recurring allegations.

    January 19, 2009 at 5:17 PM

  • In as mich as i agree with what you are writing here, you must consider your audience. Majority of kenyans have no internet and so may not get this. Why dont you write a news paper article and even advise people and potential victims to log in and read for themselves?

    January 28, 2009 at 12:25 PM

  • Having worked with dalc for quite some time, I can confirm to students that those projects you spend a lot of your time writing are not sent to UK. They are burnt down. If you write a projet, you are supposed to get back the marked copy. Have you ever received any marked copy from Uk confirming your gifts and talents?

    January 28, 2009 at 12:30 PM

  • Where there is smoke, there is fire.Surely, if the professor holds VALID qualifications, why cant he come out and clear the air- tell us how, when he got them and table his M.A, PHD dissertations?? Lies and more lies only get unsuspecting students/staff more entangled in his web of deceit! kenyans,WAKE UP.

    January 28, 2009 at 4:00 PM

  • "DR" "professor" Grand PHD, genopuls medicine, order of shining hope, 18 research papers,.....surely, this is confusing and it boggles the imagination!!

    January 28, 2009 at 4:08 PM

  • I am a student at dalc and i have been suspecting all these trush from this bugger the so called Dr Professor Oborah. Tell him the truth will be known by everybody very soon and he will pay dearly for it. Kenyans Kenyans why are we bieng cheated openlywhen we still can see the truth?

  • Am a former dalc student and my present is a waste of more than 200,000 kenyan shilling

    February 10, 2009 at 1:12 PM

  • i am former student at dalc.from the first month i enrolled in Dalc i started questioning it.i questioned why the never issued receipts after paying ati they will send through your mail for you to print it they were covering their tracks.i was doing from CAM and when you look AT Their site there is no course like computer science.I feel wasted.damn.This guy needs to be done with.

    March 3, 2009 at 3:46 PM

  • oh and ask yourself what board this is that mr koech was made chairman of.wasnt MR Koech in another corruption scandal last year.Why does Oborah call for meetings when he is leaving the next day or the same day.When he mentioned that he encounterd another school director in the CAM offices in the UK and apparently the director told him that he had just gone to say hi.Dont these guys follow a protocol or the" CAM" offices are open to all who feel they want to enter.

    March 3, 2009 at 4:01 PM

  • There is no CAM office. CAM is a desk in one of those office share things. See the latest post and see how many companies use the CAM fax no.

  • i have just enrolled at dalc and am supposed 2 start on 1st june but these allegations are putting me off although i have paid for my school fees..i hadnt seen this site before.please help me and tell me wat am suppose to do???

    May 22, 2009 at 2:16 PM

  • Try get your re-fund back.this guys are just a waste of money and time.salvage what you can when you can man coz you are putting yourself into loads of frustrations.

    May 22, 2009 at 9:45 PM

  • Mash, it is absolutely true what you say. It is better to lose money because you can always make some more. Than lose both your time and money like some of us did. Even the civil service does not recognise these shady cambridge qualifications. I work at the ministry of foreign affairs and I regret falling for DALCS marketing gimmicks. Now I have a useless CAMBRIDGE ASSOCIATION OF MANAGERS DIPLOMA.

    May 23, 2009 at 10:55 AM

    September 12, 2009 at 8:46 PM

  • hey dalc student, where did you do your practical projects. Our lecturer wrote them for us for 1000 and we are also happy to have passed.

    September 14, 2009 at 12:51 PM

  • am really scared because am almost done with my advanced diplomer and stressing myself to pay the money i spent alot of in this college if they are not credible i think enough evidance should be brought so as to stop them fro ruining our future

    November 20, 2009 at 8:56 AM

  • this is so damn true...i had been a student there,waste da lot of money. and i would wish one day it all came to an end. not all of has money growing on trees...we work hard to pay and get conned and duped in this manner. this institution should be closed down. i just dnt understand what the giovernment is doing. i cnt wait to hear that DALC is no more.

    September 10, 2010 at 1:27 PM

  • they have all the pple to convince. but i studied for an advanced diploma and did not get my certificate for 1 year 3mnths. when i threatend then i immediately got attention. but the controversies reagrding DALC are way to many. there is no smoke without fire. i just wish i had quit earlier. someone should d sumthing to close this place down.
    they are cheating pple. their courses are not recognised anywhere. i am currently lloking fro a place and evrywhere i go and i am asked - i say DALC - they all laugh at me.
    oburah should have a heart attack. so that DALC scam can be removed. it has made many pples life miserable.
    i wish all students would quit DALC and teach them a lesson.

    September 10, 2010 at 1:34 PM

  • quit b4 its tooooooooo late
