Nelson Havi, a Lawyer allied to the 5th President of the Republic of Kenya Dr. William Samoei Arap Ruto is seemingly in shock after a court ruled that Governors will now vie without a degree as a legal requirement during general elections and by-elections.
He has taken to his Twitter account arguing that the Attorney General of Kenya, Justin Muturi must appeal against the decision by the court to allow Governors to vie without a degree.
He has added that the ruling is likely to frustrate the efforts of the youthful population to pursue their education at higher levels. He has also said that the ruling will make the many universities that we have in the country lose meaning.
He also claimed that Illiteracy will then be the requirement for elective positions.
He tweeted, "The Attorney General ought to appeal against the decisions removing a degree as an eligibility requirement for election of Governors, MPs, and MCAs. What is the purpose of establishment of all these Universities if illiteracy is the qualification for elective leadership?"
