GENUINE DEGREE OR NOT?

In Kisii the case isn’t different as two voters have moved to court, questioning Dagoretti North MP Simba Arati’s academic credentials. The petitioners, Moses Ayieko and Wesley Obwang’i have moved to court questioning Arati’s degree from Jaramogi Oginga Odinga’s Nairobi Campus alleging the legislator scored a C-minus in K.C.S.E that could not enable him to join university during that time.

What fascinates the public is the fact that some of these allegations come after the statutory I.E.B.C had already cleared most of these candidates as evidenced by revocations by the same body. Sadly, the final recipient of the outcome of such altercations is the electorate which is bound to be led by underbaked leaders or qualified leaders.
