The board in charge of the elections, the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission and the parliament has been given two weeks to respond to the submissions by the court challenging an act barring Kenyans without degrees from contesting in the next 2022 general elections.
This is after IEBC and the Parliament seem to be reluctant in giving the response and time for the general election is approaching gradually. According to local publication, the case had been submitted in the court challenge the act that all 2022 contesters will aught to have degrees before they are allowed to vie for any post.
If the Parliament and the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission, IEBC will stick on the decision that each and every candidate must have a degree, then it will be a huge blow to some of the aspirants who may not have made it to get a degree.
Do you support that leaders should have degrees before they are allowed to vie for any seat? Let us meet your reactions in the comment section below.
