Babu Owino Offers To Sell His Degrees To Those Aspiring To Vie Come 2022 Sets Unattainable Prices.

Embakasi East Member of Parliament Babu Owino while responding on the law requiring contestants for MP and MCA seats to have a university degree qualification in the 2022 general election said that the requirement will be a challenge to many.

In that the legislature hilariously made an offer to sell his university degrees to those interested stating that he has 6 diplomas and 4 degree certificates.

Am using the term hilariously because the price is practically unattainable especially for the First Class Honors.

The Member of Parliament stated that First Class Honors will cost a leg and arm plus a liver.

While responding to the same, Kenya's have expressed there views with some saying that some are already in the process for looking for fake certificates.

The law, whose implementation date has been postponed several times, is set to take effect in 2022. Members of the National Assembly in 2017 amended section 22 of the Election Act that prescribes minimum academic qualifications for lawmakers at both levels of government.

The amendment requires Members of Parliament (MPs) and Members of County Assembly (MCAs) to have a minimum bachelor’s degree before they are cleared to contest.
