Deputy President William Ruto has today morning defended his PhD thesis at the University of Nairobi.

Ruto was at the School of Biological Sciences where he defended his thesis on: Influence of Anthropogenic Activities on Land Use/Cover Changes and Environmental Quality of Saiwa Wetland Watershed, Western Kenya.

He failed to graduate last year with a doctorate in Philosophy in Plant Ecology after missing out on what he said was set requirements.

"I urge all colleges to observe set standards and award certificates to students purely on merit," said Ruto.

"As a PhD student, I have subjected myself to that standard. I was due to graduate tomorrow but I can't because of requirement."

The DP already holds a Bachelor's degree in Botany and Zoology and a masters in Plant Ecology.
