Recently, Kiambu Governor Ferdinand Waititu shared a throwback photo of himself at Punjab University but Kenyans were far from convinced.

In the photo, a sharp-looking Waititu is donning a black coat, cream pants and well-polished leather shoes.

According to his caption, the photo was taken during their college days by a comrade.

“#TBT Somewhere in Punjab. A comrade from university recently paid me a visit and brought along this photo. #ComradePower,” he wrote.

However, Kenyans online were far from convinced, many questioning whether the photo was taken in Punjab University.

In the run-up to the 2017 general election, William Kabogo had challenged the credibility of Waititu’s undergraduate degree and claimed that he never met the current governor while at Punjab University.

Kabogo, however, lost the case and the institution also confirmed that Waititu was indeed a student in the 80s and graduated with a Bachelor of Commerce degree.

Asked why he never met Kabogo during his stay in India, Waititu recently stated that the former governor was four years his senior.

“Kabogo went to Punjab University four years ahead of me. So, there was no way we would have shared a class; and, by the time he came back to the university [for his certificates], he did not know that I was there,” said Waititu.
