A man has moved to court seeking to have National Super Alliance (NASA) flagbearer Raila Odinga barred from vying for the presidency in the August 8, 2017 polls.
According to Citizen, Charles Ndungu Mwangi wants the court to order Cabinet Secretary for Education Fred Matiang’i to table in the court Raila’s primary and secondary school certificates and engineering degree.
Mr Ndungu argues that Raila is not above the law and should make public his academic credentials.
“The opposition leader is not above the constitution and the laws of Kenya and is supposed to respect, uphold and defend the constitution, failure to do that would amount attempting to establish an unlawful government,” argues the petitioner.
Respondents in the case include IEBC chairman Wafula Chebukati, EACC chairman Eliud Wabukala, Inspector General of Police Joseph Bionett, Attorney General Githu Muigai and the Education CS.
Mr Ndungu claims that Fred Matiang’i failed to provide the public with Raila’s true education details.
