Deputy President William Ruto has questioned Azimio la Umoja- One Kenya Alliance presidential candidate Raila Odinga’s academic credentials.
Speaking in Nyamira on Thursday, Ruto said that the ODM leader should give proof of where he went to school, his classmates and his teachers.
“Before you tell us anything, your presidential candidate Raila should show us where he schooled, his classmates and who his teachers were. Stop the conmanship,” he said.
He added, “I want to ask the people of Azimio, what did your candidate study, where did he school and who taught him? You cant answer all that yet you want to tell us he has a degree? from where?”
Ruto joins a section of Kenyans who are not satisfied with IEBC clearing Raila for presidency.
IEBC CEO Hussein Marjan said the electoral body did its due diligence and was satisfied before clearing Raila Odinga to vie for the presidency.
“By the time he was clearing him (Raila Odinga), he had certified that the candidate had met all the requirements. Raila Odinga met the requirements and to that extent, I would say that Hon Raila Odinga met the requirements,” Marjan said.
Now the drama remains at Nairobi where UDA aspirant Johnson Sakaja is hanging in the balance with High Court stopping CUE from revoking his University degree pending investigations.
