Why Does the World Hate DALC.

If you google DALC, you will come up with more negative than positive. Why does the world hate DALC I ask you. Oborah will tell you its the competition but have a look at all these sources and ask yourself, why DALC.

DALC 'Expose'- Another Higher Education Scandal

Kln News

Parents, guardians and self-sponsored students in Kenya could be losing millions of shillings in fees and other charges in the belief that they would get certificates from two famous UK universities — Cambridge and Oxford —through a correspondent relationship with the Digital Advisory Learning Centre (DALC).

This is not the first time that a higher education scandal hits the country. Sometime last year it emerged that another institution Irish International University (IIC), which interestingly has connections with DALC was exposed as awarding ‘scam’ degrees to overseas students especially from Africa. One of the IIC directors interviewed on TV actually admitted that there was nothing genuine about the degrees they handed out!

Here is an extract from the Business Daily Expose; “What’s in a name? Probably everything in the education sector. Schools and colleges with a history, reputation and a string of well known alumni behind them tend to attract more interest from sponsors, parents and students, giving them a huge potential base from which to earn income in the form of fees, grants and endowments.

The Grand DALC Deception.



Habari,Hallo,Bonjour.

I was forwarded a thread about this recurring topic on the validity or otherwise,of DALC as a valid institution of higher learning.I had once considered joining ,DALC, to pursue a course they purportedly offered,Graduate Diploma In Actuarial Studies.

My voyage began rather innocently and with great expectation as is the nature of such voyages.First and foremost i availed myself at their Nairobi west offices.Where i was interviewed about my educational level,course i was interested in blah..,.Then i left my contacts i.e e-mail and was told to expect a career placement e-mail,from their "expert"in Westlands,in a couple of days.

Alas! Wanakazi two days later, I was duly informed that due to their assessment I was eligible to enter DALC , at Graduate Diploma level.That would have been well and good,had i not been told that i could report the next monday (this being a thursday) and "commence"my studies without furnishing any documentary proof of my level of education.Now Wanakazi is the point at which alarm bells started going off in my head.

I am a logical man,and as they say when the deal is too good think twice.I could'nt help but think,that,Considering that i had just walked off the street given my qualifications without any formal documentation,and here i was on my way to a degree in Actuarial Science within 18 months in none other than the prestigious CAMBRIDGE or OXFORD no less.Nikaona wanakazi then, what was to stop a makanga(with all due respect to them) from walking straight from the street,say the self-same exact words i did and be on the way to a Bsc Actuarial Science From The top two Science universitys in the Globe!!!,at the friendly cost of 7900 KSHS per month,flexible hours,start anytime programme.
So i decided to do some little cybersnooping(i'm a Web Designer so i am adept at this type of exercise)and this is what i dug out.First and foremost Prof.Doc.Edu Humphrey Oborah as his homepage says,check it out.

Figure 1. "Doctor" Oborah Receiving His Phd.

" Prof. Dr. Edu. Humphrey Oborah, has been researching after attaining his PhD on Gift and Talent Testing with a bias to Career Forecasting. His research has produced Bio-medical Education
.


So ask yourself why all these people and more are questioning DALC's legitimacy. Could we all be paid by the competitors? Are we trying to ensure that DALC loses its Oxford/ Cambridge exclusive courses?

An objective person will only draw one conclusion...like a gunman in one of those cowboy movies. FASST!

  • HEY PEOPLE,
    TO BE FAIR TO DALC,I THINK YOU SHOULD CONTACT CAMBRIDGE ASSOCIATION OF MANAGERS AND OXFORD ASSOCIATION OF MANAGERS AND GET THE INFO FROM THEM.BUT I MUST SAY,DALC IS PRETTY FISHY.

  • IF YOU KNOW THAT DALC IS FAKE AND YOU HAVE THE INFO TO PROVE IT,THEN WHY DO YOU NOT JUST TAKE THE INFO TO THE POLICE,CHE AND THE MEDIA HOUSES AND LET DALC BE INVESTIGATED.YOU PEOPLE SOUND LIKE YOU ARE SCANDALIZING A FAIRLY SIMPLE CASE.TAKE THE INFO TO THE RELEVANT AUTHORITIES.

  • If all this stories are true,then Oborah is unfair to lay man face and guilty before God and any one with proove should come up to police and be arested for getting money in awrong way.Now why is the Ministry of education allowing this? I'm personally in doubt,why does it offer direct degrees and also why does it not anounce its graduation ceremony on newspaPer and the rest of media services if it is agenuine institute.
