Kabete MP Ferdinand Waititu isn’t taking the challenge to his academic record lying down. In fact he’s called more than 50 of his former school mates from high school and university to testify in court on his behalf in the matter.
Speaking over the weekend in Thika Town, the Kabete MP said of the issue regarding the status of his academic record: “I’m eagerly waiting for the hearing of the case so that I can finally clear my name and Kabogo will be in for a rude shock. Let the governor stop fearing my candidature for the Kiambu gubernatorial position. It’s the people who will decide their next governor,”
Waititu further rebuked the governor, stating that he was in the process of clearing his master’s degree from the Nairobi campus of Methodist University.
“There is no way I would have been admitted to do a master’s degree at Methodist University if I had not done my undergraduate,” continued the Kabete MP.
Recently the Commission for University Education (CUE) has said that it is out to block politicians with questionable education papers from vying in the upcoming 2017 General Election.
The Cabinet Secretary for Education Fred Matiang’i said leaders will not need judges to establish the authenticity of their papers, but that CUE knows exactly how to pick out the frauds and kick them out of the polls.
Kabogo on Monday, March 21, filed papers in court accusing Kabete MP Ferdinand Waititu, who is said to be eyeing the seat, of identity theft as he changed his name to Clifford.
