Kenya Medical Practitioners Pharmacists Dentists Union secretary-general Dr Ouma Oluga, has come out to defend the high court over ruling nullifying the degree requirements for one to vie for the gubernatorial seat.
Taking to his official social media pages, Dr Oluga noted that all Kenyans should be free to vie for different seats without putting restrictions, just the same way they vote without the restrictions.
According to Dr Oluga, it is upon Kenyans to elect whoever they want for whichever the seat they are vying for and whatever the leadership brings is always based on their choices.
"If elections are universal suffrage then the qualifications for such elective post must also be universal entry. Let every citizen have equal opportunity to vie as with their equal opportunity to vote." He posted on his Twitter handle.
"Let people suffer or prosper based on their choices, education aside." Dr Ouma Oluga added.
