Waititu graduates from KEMU with Masters in Business Administration
Kiambu Governor Ferdinand Waititu graduated on Saturday with a Masters in Business Administration from Kenya Methodist University.
Waititu was among 2,800 learners who graduated at the 17th ceremony of the Meru institution.
Early in January, the politician won a case in which former Governor William Kabogo alleged he forged a degree certificate.
He was awarded Sh50.9 million after Kabogo alleged he breached the Leadership and Integrity Act and had a fake degree from India’s Panjab University.
Kabogo wanted the court to declare his rival unfit to run for public office.
While defending himself in the suit, Waititu accused Kabogo of merely seeking to wrongly use the court process to tarnish his political name and support.
Meru speaker Joseph Kaberia and former Buuri MP Kinoti Gatobu also graduated with Masters in Business Administration.
Kenya National Union of Teachers chairman Mudzo Nzili was also among those who acquired degrees.
Chief guest Meru Governor Kiraitu Murungi urged the people to give back to their communities by helping primary and secondary schools.
“Graduands should also research and find cures for cancer and HIV,” he said.
“Universities should not be an ivory tower secluded from the rest of the society. They should instead solve social and economic challenges our country is facing.”
