Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology (JKUAT) last week ushered into the job market more than 100 PhD graduates; a record new in a single graduation ceremony in the country.

Atleast 3,345 students graduated from the university with 118 being conferred with doctorate degrees, a move which has been criticized by part of the Kenyan population.

Members of the academia have suggested an audit of the PhDs conferred last week arguing that the institution lacks the capacity to train such a huge number of students.
