Verified! Uhuru Kenyatta Is A Graduate Of Amherst College, Massachusetts…

President Uhuru Kenyatta’s alma mater took to Twitter on Thursday to respond to inquiries on the president’s academic credentials.

Following a very heated debate on social media where some NASA supporters claimed that the president was not a university graduate, US-based Amherst College was tasked to clarify the status of President Uhuru Kenyatta's degree.

The discussion was sparked by the ongoing probe on claims that Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho forged a KCSE result slip.

After several twitter users contacted the college in efforts to ascertain the status of the president's degree, Amherst College in Amherst, Massachusetts replied in a tweet: “Happy to answer questions directed our way. Uhuru Kenyatta graduated in 1985 with a degree in economics & political science.”

Pressed for evidence, they said: “Sorry, we do not provide personal information about our current or former students, faculty or staff.”

The institution trades as a premier liberal arts colleges enrolling some 1,800 talented, energetic young people.

It advised those who were not satisfied to contact their alumni and parent programmes.

“Please direct other questions to alumni and parent programs through alumni@amherst.edu.”

When some of the users requested photo evidence of Uhuru Kenyatta graduating, the institution declined, terming this personal.

For photos, they said: “We post all our public photos on our Flickr site, but don't tag particular individuals”.

The college went ahead to share a web link that listed President Kenyatta as one of the graduates of 1985.

The following is the correspondence between KOT and the college administration;
