    Kenyans we should realise majority of this Mps are there for their own selfish ends. Since the political class has failed as a progressive force, we the people should take the lead in umasking the political rot that is hindering progression and overall social mobility. We should name and shame this people whose behaviour is tantamount to TREASON. Doesnt the Kenyan constitution give all of us equality. This traitors should be taken to court and prevented from running for any office.Though the Government doesnt have laws on treason, we should enforce and evoke chapter 2 article 10 (2) (c) of the constitution. Dear Kenyans just ask your self this question. How has my life been for the past two years?? would it have been better if ,the leadership in this government took the right steps and offered good governance?? If yes then lets get rid of this vermin that has plagued our society

    In a democracy, which is what we aspire to be, you cannot limit the pool of choices beyond the reasonable limitations of domicile, age/maturity and criminal record. If you were to do that, then you cannot claim that citizens are freely choosing their leaders. So this degree requirement is as boneheaded as sadly, a good heft of this katiba. You do not even need to point out the dubious notion that degree holding leaders will necessarily be better than non-holders. This katiba does need a good deal more mutilation before it qualifies for respect.

    While education is critical to any society, it should not be confused with performance at all. We love education and have given all to our children. The way you react and perceive things can definitely be influenced by your level of education. However, leadership issues hardly reflect on one’s educational background. Leadership is actually inborn. Whats not inborn is bought leadership. Late Hon. Njenga Karume, who had modest education, was extremely successful both in politics and business. Am told former British prime minister Mr. John Major didnt have university education. Our own retired president
    Moi is another case!

    Actually insertion of degree clause in our constitution was ill-timed and malicious, assuming that its initial purpose was aimed at blocking one individual. It bordered on discriminatory! That in itself, read “unconstitutional!” First, leadership skills are practically acquired over time.

    Its also important to note that majority of our population dont have degrees. That the document was drawn by elitist experts cant be in doubt at all. I guess, this is within 25% of the document thats is bad. We cant create laws that defranchise the larger part of the population. When those laws are supposed to be for the good of that same same populace. Furthermore, democracy demands that greater number decides! Perhaps, our poor guys who had intellectual drive to go to university but failed because of money needs to be blamed for that!

    Matters that are supposed to be decided on by all the people cant be classified for afew at the detriment of the larger majority. People must be allowed to elect however they want. After all, people are mostly elected on basis of their past performance. Infact, majority of well performing individuals in various capacities hardly do so because of their education. There is something called personal drive. The zeal and love of what you are doing determines the outcome!
