Ngunjiri Wambugu Slams Abdi Guliye For Alleging That Politicians Have Low IQ Level

As we head towards August general elections, the biggest task awaits IEBC, which is to make sure that the elections are free and fare. One of IEBC commissioners Abdi Guliye has said that Kenyans have glorified politicians to an extent that everyone wants to be a politician. That when they clear politicians, they are at the bottom ladder of their IQ level. That those who went to university have passes and second class lower.

However the sentiments have not been received well by the Nyeri town member of parliament honourable Ngunjiri Wambugu. He has taken to Facebook to slam Guliye. He wrote;

"These are the kind of generalised statements that make people think all Kenyan politicians are idiots. Someone tell this fellow I neither had a pass or a second lower. And I am a politician."

It should be noted that the request that members of parliament should have a degree in order to vie for political seats was dismissed in court. Therefore, those who finished secondary school only are allowed to vie. This gave an opportunity for many people to vie for the position. In some constituencies, there are so many aspirants.

IEBC is having a tough time after Azimio la Umoja One Kenya coalition party flag bearer Raila Odinga threatened to boycott the elections. That the commission should also bring that manual voter register to make sure that no one misses an opportunity to vote. They have also accused Wetangula for being in touch with the company that is printing the ballot papers. That Kenya Kwanza is allegedly planning to bring in marked ballot papers through Uganda. However, Wetangula refuted the claims and said that he doesn't do printing of papers.
