Uhuru’s graduation photo slams doubts on his academic papers

A picture of a younger President Uhuru Kenyatta receiving a peck from his mother Mama Ngina during college graduation has surfaced online.

The undated picture shows President Kenyatta all smiles in a graduation gown and cap while holding a graduation scroll.

He has his right around his mother who is planting a kiss on his cheek.

There are also several white students in the background.


On Thursday, a US-based college was forced to respond to online queries on whether President Kenyatta was one of their  students.

Amherst College in Massachusetts on Thursday confirmed that the president graduated with a degree in economics and political science, but said it does not disclose personal details of former students.

Some users had requested photo evidence.

The questions on President Kenyatta’s academic qualifications stem from an ongoing onslaught on Mombasa Governor Ali Hassan Joho following claims that he may have forged his KCSE certificate.
