During an interview in Citizen TV Day break program, UDA secretary general Veronica Maina said that there is need to relook into the authenticity of academic qualification of presidential candidates.
The UDA secretary general questioned the legitimacy of the certificates of Azimio presidential candidate Raila Odinga owing that there has been so many headlines questioning his academic qualifications.
“You have seen a lot of headlines questioning the university that our biggest opponent, Raila Amolo Odinga, qualified from. It is a very big question which needs to be looked into,” Maina said.
She also questioned the legitimacy of Roots party presidential candidate George Wajackoyah, suspecting if at all all the 17 degree he possess to have are legitimate and valid.
This is after Nairobi gubernatorial candidate Jonson Sakaja found himself in mishmash after IEBC questioned his degree qualifications.
Sakaja claimed he graduated from Teams University in Uganda though his name could not be traced in the graduation list. He went ahead to complain that his name was intentionally removed from the list to bar him from vying for the gubernatorial seat since a degree is one of the requirements.
