Who Are Your Classmates? Where Did You School? – Presidential Candidate Asks Opponent

Just as Nigeria prepares for its general election in 2023, William Ruto, the Deputy President of Kenya and a presidential candidate in the forthcoming August 2022 elections, has questioned his opponent, Raila Odinga of Azimio la Umoja’s academic credentials.

Gatekeepers News reports that Ruto, while speaking in Manga, Nyamira on Thursday, asked the former Prime Minister to give proof of where he schooled, his classmates, and his teachers.

“If there is anyone with questionable academic credentials, it is your Azimio presidential candidate,” the DP said.

“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 added.

He insisted that the Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Alliance candidate cannot prove what he studied, but claims to have a degree.

“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?”

Meanwhile, the Secretary-General of the United Democratic Alliance, Veronica Maina earlier poked holes into Raila’s academic credentials, saying that qualifications for public office holders need to be looked at from a wider public view.

“Questions have also been cast on the credentials of presidential candidates. You have seen a lot of headlines questioning the university that our biggest opponent Raila Amollo Odinga qualified from, and it becomes a big question that needs to be looked at not through the lenses of just one candidate, but a wider public question,” Maina said.

Nevertheless, the electoral body of the country, the  Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) on Wednesday said that the former Prime minister met all the requirements and is qualified to vie for the country’s top seat.
