Court throws out case on Waititu’s ‘fake degree’ from India

High Court has granted repreive to Kabete MP Ferdinand Waititu in a case in which Kiambu Governor William Kabogo had challenged his academic credentials.

Justice Joseph Onguto dismissed the case on Wednesday saying that issues, which Mr Kabogo wanted determined, are matters that are not within the court’ s jurisdiction.

The judge specifically pointed out that the issue of leadership and intergrity is a matter that can be dealt with accordingly by other institutions, which have various mandates under the law.

He therefore struck out the case and disimissed it.

He also slapped Mr Kabogo with legal costs of the suit.

Mr Kabago had sued Mr Waititu claiming that he has a fake degree from Punjab university and that he has breached the leadership and Integrity Act.
