BY NT CORRESPONDENT.

Kiambu Governor William Kabogo has lost a case challenging Kabete MP Ferdinand Waititu’s academic qualifications.

While giving a ruling on the case, High Court judge Justice Joseph Onguto concurred with arguments put forward by the Kabete legislator’s legal counsel Harrison Kinyanjui that it has no jurisdiction to determine the matter.

Kabogo was seeking orders barring Waititu from holding any public office on grounds that he has breached the Leadership and Integrity Act.

Waititu said in 2013 that he has valid academic qualifications, from Punjab University in India, that make him eligible to run for Nairobi Governor.

The Member of Parliament said he attended Dagoreti High school and studied commerce in India.

He also presented certificates bearing the name ‘Clifford Ndung’u Waititu’. These included his 1981 Kenya Certificate of Education, a leaving certificate from Siri Guru College in India and his degree certificate.

But Kabogo, who noted he also studied at Punjab University, said he was surprised to learn Waititu went to the same school “having been admitted in unclear and opaque circumstances”.
