"Hypocrite" Homa Bay Member Of Parliament Exposes Ruto Badly

Honourable George Peter Kaluma has know called those opposing the degree requirement act as hypocrites. He alleged that some of this people are the ones who passed this bill back in 2011.


In his statement through a twitter tweet, alleged that this degree requirement for members of parliament and those of county assemblies act was passed back in the 10 parliment while Ruto and some of the people opposing the act were representing their people in parliament.

He further added that pretence will diminish Kenya one day if the politicians and other people won' t stop it. Kaluma then went ahead to inform the politicians that being an Mp was a serious business thus they should ensure that hold degrees or find other things to do.

" " The Degree requirement for MPs/MCAs in section 22 of the Elections Act was passed by the 10th Parliament in 2011.

William Ruto and those now opposed to the law passed it. Hypocrisy will kill Kenya!


Being MP is serious business. Acquire degree or find other things to do! " Kaluma stated.

On his side, Ruto stated that termed the degree requirement bas unnecessary restrictions that will prevent Kenyans from choosing the leaders they want. He further explained that the constitution had condemned such incidents thus the degree should not be put in to practice.

The deputy president went on to state that the MCA' s should not be forced to have the same grades such as the president, governor' s and other leaders.

" The constitution prohibits any unreasonable restrictions being placed on the way of voters or candidates to be able to vie or vote in any elections, to say that MCAs should have the same qualifications as MPs, Governors and even the President is not reasonable, already we have Parliament reconsidering Section 22 in the Elections Act so that we can remove what the law provides today that in my opinion is unreasonable restrictions on candidates that want to be elected, " Ruto stated.
