Revealed! What Kenyans Never Knew About 'Baba Yao'.

Kabete MP Ferdinand Waititu has finally come out to the open and unraveled the puzzle hoovering around his degree from India after his rival and Kiambu Governor William Kabogo moved to court over the issue.

In a suit on Monday, Kabogo said that "Ferdinand Ndung'u Waititu, whose birth was registered on January 4, 1980, cannot be the same person as Clifford who sat CPE at Mbagathi Primary in 1975." 

Kabogo had argued that Waititu "did not have any qualification past primary school education and that he did not go to India for higher education".

Addressing parents and pupils of Gatuanyaga and Kimuchu Primary Schools on Thursday in response to those allegations, Mr. Waititu said that his parents separated when he was still a young boy. As a result, he acquired his name, Ferdinand Ndung'u Waititu from his mother’s side of the family.

After being brought up by his single mother for quite some years, his mother reunited with his father and Waititu had to adapt the names Ferdinand Clifford Ndung'u Waititu to reflect his biological father’s family as is the tradition in the Agikuyu Community.

“Is it a crime really to have gone through what I went through for my parents’ separation?” he posed.

Waititu maintained that he had valid academic qualifications from Panjab University, SGGS College in India from 1985 to 1988 where he graduated with second class honours upper division in Bachelor of Commerce.

He added that he was currently completing his masters degree at The Methodist University, another proof that his academic papers were not questionable.

The MP clarified that he attended Dagoreti High school and later studied commerce in India.

“Kabogo is just running scared of my candidature for the Kiambu gubernatorial seat. I will face him in court and prove to the world that I am not a fraudster as alleged. I will present to the court, all relevant documentation plus my academic papers. I will also present more than 50 former classmates who we schooled together since nursery school all the way to Punjab University,” Waititu said.

He warned Mr. Kabogo that his goose was already cooked and it was only a matter of time before reality dawned on him that his time as Kiambu Governor was in its sunset hours.

Waititu added that he too, will head to the courts to present a ‘dossier’ that questioned Kabogo’s integrity  as governor of Kiambu County.

The Kenyan law specifies that those seeking gubernatorial seats should at least have a University degree.

The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission used Waititu’s degree from the Punjab University clear him to vie against Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero in the 2013 General Election.
