Mr. Wambugu, I’ll quote you from above:
‘Chapter 99;1;b allows parliament to determine educational, moral and ethical requirements of political leaders but does not say that such benchmark is a degree.’
If the constitution allows MPs to set such standards, why are you crying foul about discrimination when the are clearly within the law?
As much as it excludes majority of Kenyans, we’d hope the standards set will improve the quality of leaders we get. We have to keep in mind that MPs are not exclusively ‘leaders’ they are most of the times legislators! We have minimum requirements from people who work in the executive and the judiciary arm of the leadership ‘tri-tower’, so why should our legislators be excluded?
I don’t buy your points above, you have circling on one point, we need leaders who are of certain standards to best represent our interests in the seats they occupy. Those people need to be able to understand the law they defend, and such need to be educated.

wambugu stop saying we be saying i you don’t represent any constituency unless this sniffing tobacco people have appointed you
The country is not doing so bad because of modest education of our leaders. Its because majority of our guys believe in thievery. We should not therefore confuse performance with educational background. What we need is honest farsighted leaders. To insist on degrees is is actually to groove in the dark instead of finding proper solution to our problems! After all, even in developed countries there is no such thing. Leadership is God given. But we are narrowing ourselves to “bought” leadership that has brought misery to all of us.
