Politicians and leaders across the country are viewed as role models to the young generation with most young people believing that they can emulate some of the politician's lifestyle.
In the sector of academics, the country's law requires them to be learned up to a certain level before contesting for an elective seat in the country.
However, independent electoral and boundaries commission commissioner Abdi Guliye has revealed that some of the politicians failed their exams and that it is us Kenyans who glorify them and make them to feel more superior and educated.
He has said that most of these politicians who we see and those who had a chance to go through university and colleges either have a pass or lower class division in their papers.
"We have glorified politicians to the extent that everybody wants to be a politician. When we clear candidates, they are at the bottom ladder of their IQ level. Those who have gone through university have passes and second class lower," Abdi Guliye said.
