City Lawyer Donald B Kipkorir, has broken silence on the High Court ruling declaring that requirement for governor candidates to have degree qualification is unconstitutional.
In his yesterday's rulling, High Court Judge Mrima ruled that the law is unconstitutional paving ways for those without degree to become governors in the near future.
Taking to his social media pages, the City Lawyer faulted the High Court arguing that the court is paving ways for under qualified individuals to occupy the highest offices at the devolved units.
"Our Constitution lays minimum Foundational Substratum of building Kenya that walks on a high road of moral values and best in each of us." Donald Kipkorir posted on his social media pages.
"It envisages our leaders will be the best of us. High Court is slowly destroying this by opening the door for charlatans to occupy high offices." The city lawyer added.
The ruling has attracted mixed reactions with some supporting while some critisizing.
