The Chama cha Uzalendo party has written to the independent electoral and boundaries commission seeking clarification about the academic qualifications of Wiper senatorial candidate Agnes Kavindu.
Agnes Kavindu Muthama Education
According to the letter by the party seen by Nairobiminibloggers.com news, Kavindu only attended primary school and didn’t go to secondary.
Later she attained a degree in theology which is questionable since she didn’t attend secondary school.
They said this was against the constitution which requires a minimum of secondary education to run for Senate.
They questioned how the election body cleared Kavindu yet she didn’t have the required qualifications.
“Currently the constitution and the elections act requires a minimum of post-secondary education qualification for one to be cleared to vie for senate,” read the letter.
“We demand to know how IEBC clears someone who does not have secondary education let alone post-secondary education required by the law. Kavindu purports to have a degree from a certain WIOB college and our research WOIB is not a recognized institution to offer any academic courses,” it read further.
The party’s secretary-general Philipe Sadjah threatened to go to court to compel the commission to explain how they cleared Agnes without qualifications.
He urged Machakos people not to be compelled to vote for a class eight drop out.
