Mr. Borvor‘s picture (ciircled) is in the AME Zion University’s graduation souvenir under the Department of Wilfred E. Clark College of Criminal Justice

The Daily Observer has reliably learnt that authorities of the African Methodist Episcopal Zion University (AMEZU) investigation team cannot trace any information concerning when Kokulo S. Borvor entered the institution through its office of Admission and Records.

According to our sources, as the institution investigates Borvor, the investigative team has also discovered that there are other names that surfaced on the graduation list but did not meet the administration’s academic standard. Instetad, they reportedly duped the system to form part of the graduating class of 2021. The other names are yet to be released to the public.

Our investigation has established that Mr. Borvor ‘s picture is in the graduation souvenir as a graduate of the Wilfred E. Clarke College of Criminal Justice Administration, but the same name is seen nowehere among names on the list of graduates of this college.

Mr. Bovor, after the Daily Observer’s Friday, April 30, 2021 publication titled, “Ex-Justice Ministry Official Appears on AME Zion Graduation List,” used a cell number 0770137043, which belongs to a ‘contractor’ of the ‘Big Sam Academy International School System,’ a high school operated by his wife Krubo Borvor, to call our Reporter, Hannah N. Geterminah, threatening and insulting her for publishing the story about Borvor’s fraudulent academic pursuit.

When Mrs. Borvor called, she introduced herself as Rev. Mother Krubo Borvor, pastor of a big church called the Tower of Praise Prophetic and Deliverance Ministry International and said that the Daily Observer had written lies about her husband.

“Hello, is this Hannah N. Geterminah?”

“Yes, I am.”

“I am the wife of the man you have been written lies about in the newspaper, but I call to inform you to get ready for me because I will fight you in every form, even if it includes flesh, blood and sweat. I just called to let you know that I will deal with you. In fact, get ready to meet us at the Temple of Justice to prove your story,” she threatened and ended the call.

In less than two minutes after this, Kokulo Borvor himself called our reporter but did not confirm or deny whether the story written was false; rather, he added to the threats his wife has earlier unleashed on our reporter.

“I will show you myself as a man because I will fight you in whatever way I can to prove to you that I am not someone you can just write about and go free,” he said and ended the call.

When the reporter called him back to get more information, his wife answered the call and insulted, threatening, “Get ready for me in court on Monday.”

Mr. Borvor’s name cannot be found among the full listing that was provided by the AMEZU Criminal Justice department

After Monday, May 3, 2021, Daily Observer called the number that was used by the Borvors, but it was later established that the phone actually belongs to a man who is the contractor of the ‘Big Sam Academy International School System’.

According to information, the man was undergoing medical attention at a local hospital and was ‘advised by the doctor not to engage into too many conversations’.

All efforts thereafter to reach the Borvor family were fruitless on ground that the Daily Observer could not trace their contact details.    

It may be recalled that in February, Kokulo S. Borvor was forced to resign as Comptroller-General of the Ministry of Justice following an investigative report by the Daily Observer, titled, “Justice Ministry Employs Expelled AMEU Student as Comptroller.”

 Mr. Kokulo finally resurfaced in full academic regalia (cap and gown), as a member of the African Methodist Episcopal Zion University (AMEZU) Graduating Class of 2021.

A document in possession of the Daily Observer shows that Mr. Borvor was allegedly expelled from the African Methodist Episcopal University (AMEU), and he went on to present a faked academic credential to a number of employers including the Justice Ministry, claiming to have graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Accounting from the AME University in 2017.

With the faked credential, Borvor successfully made his way to work previously as Comptroller-General with the Liberia Drugs Enforcement Agency (LDEA) using the same doctored (deceptive, counterfeit) academic record.

Mr. Borvor’s Civil Servants Form, which he presented to the LDEA, a copy of which is in the possession of the Daily Observer with payroll number 16-19-161-0112, shows that he acquired a BBA, [A AC] in 2017 from the African Methodist University.  

Two months following Borvor’s resignation, his name surfaced on the list of the 30th Commencement Convocation exercises of the AMEZU, held on Thursday, April 22, 2021.

According to a highly placed source at the University, how Borvor appeared among graduates has remained a mystery to the authority of the institution and an investigation has reportedly been launched to ascertain his enrollment at the tertiary institution.

The source told the Daily Observer that AMEZU is not only investigating when Borvor enrolled but what he did that his name appeared among the graduates, adding that the finding of said investigation is expected to be released soon.

Borvor’s graduation claimed public attention after his wife posted on her Facebook page with the comment, “Congratulations for the job well done.”

The post was brought down after sharp public reactions began pouring in especially from some workers of the Ministry of Justice and LDEA. Despite efforts to take the post down, it was belated for Mrs. Borvor as the photos were already downloaded by some individuals and shared widely.
