US College Confirms President Kenyatta Graduated from the Institution, Following Queries from Kenyans on Twitter
Following queries from Kenyans on twitter if indeed President Uhuru Kenyatta graduated from the institution, Amherst College in Massachusetts, USA responded with confirmation that the president was indeed one of its graduates in the class of 1985.
Amherst College shared a link on twitter listing Uhuru Kenyatta on its list of 1985 graduates, when he graduated with an undergraduate degree in Economics and Political Science.
Kenyans’ probe on the president was triggered by the ongoing queries on the education credentials of Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho. Joho, also an ODM Deputy Party Leader, is accused of presenting a fake KCSE result slip to gain admission into the University of Nairobi. He however denies the charge and terms it as a ploy by Jubilee to undermine his political ambitions.
Below are some exchanges between Kenyans and the administrator of the Amherst College twitter account:
@samfatayah Thanks for your question. We can confirm that Uhuru Kenyatta graduated in 1985 with a degree in economics & political science.
