The IEBC declaring that no aspirant will be verrified for any electoral position without a valid degree certificate has left many politicians unsettled.
The deputy president, William Ruto also raised concern that it is only one percent of the country's total population that have degree certificates. Again, he also claimed that MCAs, Senators and Mps should not have the same academic qualifications. In other words, the deputy president said that IEBC move is irrational and non considerate.
This joke has brought a lot of reaction online. Here are some comments;
Moluor Jafa Luthedonge: I have always loved Babu. But immarturity and pride will finish this man. Being humble and wise are totally different things from intelligence!
Wakili Ndegwa Wachira: You don't have to posses a degree certificate to make a good leadership.
Shanice: Really??? You should learn from governor Hon. Ali Hassan Joho.
We don't need papers to make good leadership.
Humphrey Humless: Having a degree is not being intelligent not good leader. Some leaders have degrees but they use their heads as saliva dispenser.
Charles Unilever: People should be deliberate and intentional. This is how you can pay a price for your ambition. Wavering academic requirement is a mediocre move. Let people go back to school to earn public leadership.
Chris Bigutu: I think it is the best move IEBC has done to avoid the likes of many goons we have in the current county assemblies. We need people we can engage minds and not fights.
Owade Mpole Stanley: A good leader comes from God, leadership requires mosly wisdom not a cooked knowledge,,, many have degree in Kenya but usesless when it comes to decision making.
Meanwhile, do you feel that all aspirants must have a degree to vie for elective seat in the forthcoming general elections?
