Mandago: Buzeki scored ‘D Minus’, his degree should be investigated
Uasin Gishu Governor Jackson Mandago has challenged his main political opponent, Bundotich Kiprop, to make public his academic qualifications.
Mandago is facing a formidable challenge from Kiprop, popularly known as Buzeki, ahead of the Jubilee Party primaries which were rescheduled from Friday to a yet to be announced date.
In a televised interview on Friday night moments after the Jubilee primaries were cancelled, Mandago also admitted to leading hundreds of youth in demonstrations around Eldoret town earlier in the day.
“Our competitors should also be truthful, I heard Buzeki today abusing other Members of Parliament. He says Oscar Sudi doesn’t have papers. But I would also want to ask him to come clean about his academic qualifications. Is it true that he has a D Minus, and if he indeed has that grade he has to tell us how he acquired a degree,” Mandago said.
Mandago also accused Buzeki of practicing divisive politics.
“We would also like our competitors to be civil, and stop dividing the citizens of this county. Going round telling this tribe you know so and so doesn’t like you so vote for me is dividing the people,” he said.
The youthful Buzeki has caused a buzz in Eldoret town with series of flashy campaigns, even as reports suggest he has the financial and moral backing of top honchos in Deputy President William Ruto’s office.
