Kithure Kindiki Urged to Move a Motion to Stop IEBC from Enforcing Degree Requirement in 2022

It is just a week after the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission announced that the degree requirement will be a factor in the 2022 General Election.

This is a move which has sparked mixed reaction among Kenyans on social media as it might end up denying very many good leaders opportunity to participate in nation-building and propelled the country forward.

Among those who reacted to the move is former senate speaker Professor Kithure Kindiki who urge the Commission to consider scrapping the requirement as it might deny very good leaders the opportunity in the country leadership.

However, the senator has been urged by a section of kenyans to move a motion in the Senate, as he is elected to speak on behalf of many kenyans who are affected by the Commission requirements.

This is a tough task ahead considering that the Tangatanga wing has been outnumbered in the Senate and hence the possibility of such a motion passing in parliament will be difficult.

It is not clear whether the senator will heed the pressure and move a motion in Parliament to save those who are affected by the requirement by the Commission.

Meanwhile, do you think elected leaders must have a degree to be elected to public office share your thoughts?
