Kabete MP Ferdinand Waititu has hit back at Kiambu Governor William Kabogo, claiming he is not a degree holder.
In a replying affidavit filed at the High Court, Mr Waititu claims that Governor Kabogo did not attend Panjab University to study for a Bachelor’s degree in commerce.
He claims Kabogo’s presence in India was not documented as he failed to give proof that he changed his electrical engineering course to a Bachelor of Commerce degree.
Waititu also says that Kabogo does not possess a student ID from the Indian university.
He claims to have instituted criminal proceedings against the Kiambu Governor at the Kibera Law Court where he is seeking to have him charged with faking a document. He says that Kabogo failed to respond to the issue of shifting his birth dates.
“Kabogo has failed to address the core issue in his supplementary affidavit,” said Waititu’s lawyer Harrison Kinyanjui.
Mr Kinyanjui claims that Kabogo has stated his date of birth as April 4, 1961, while public documents allege that he was born on April 4, 1964.
Kinyanjui claims that after raising the issue, Kabogo failed to respond.
He claims Kabogo’s date of birth - April 4, 1964 - is inorrect because it is not possible that he could have been admitted to a college in India by June 19, 1979, as indicated in his own documents.
“If indeed he was being admitted to a college in India on June 19, 1979, as he alleges and having, as alleged, been born on April 4, 1964, then Kabogo would not have been able to proceed to India at the age 15 for a degree course,” says Kinyanjui.
Waititu claims that Kabogo has no evidence that he attended any O-level course that waived the “A” level course such as would have enabled him to proceed to India at age 15 for a degree course.
“He is plainly not being honest, neither has he demonstrated that he is an academic genius that was the first to achieve such a feat in Kenya,” says Waititu.
