Machakos Wiper party governor candidate Wavinya Ndeti has fired back at critics questioning the validity of her university degree.

Ndeti said she has several degrees from credible institutions accusing those questioning their authenticity of planning to waste her campaign time.

“I have six degrees, the seventh was my deceased husband. Those peddling propaganda that they are fake wants me to waste my time in court. I have no time to waste,” Ndeti said.

She addressed the public during her political rally at Mtituni shopping centre in Machakos County on Wednesday.

The former Transport CAS was responding to claims that the degree certificates she presented to IEBC for clearance to contest for the seat were fake.

She was cleared alongside her competitors Johnson Muthama (UDA), Machakos deputy governor Francis Maliti (Maendeleo Chap Chap), and CCU party leader Nzioka Waita.

Ndeti also trashed the information going viral on social media that London South Bank University had issued a statement stating she didn’t graduate from the university.

“The South Bank University United Kingdom wishes to notify members of the public that Ms Wavinya Ndeti did not graduate from this institution as she alleges. The university earlier issued a statement on the matter and was clear that the person in question did not start or complete her studies in our esteemed institution,” the fake letter from London South Bank University read in part.

Two Machakos voters had lodged a complaint at the electoral commission challenging its decision to clear Ndeti to rally for the gubernatorial seat.

Kisilu Mutisya and Gideon Ngewa Kenya want the IEBC disputes resolution committee to revoke Ndeti’s clearance claiming she isn’t constitutionally qualified to vie for the position.

In the complaint, the voters alleged that she doesn’t have a university degree as required by the law.
