Here are top comments gathered by our Social Hawk:

Embakasi East MP Paul Ongili alias Babu Owino mocked the Meru Senator for being “an academic GMO”

Former Kakamega Senator who also serves as Ford Kenya party deputy leader Boni Khalwale congratulated the city varsity on the move.

A user, Arnold Santos wanted to know if lawyer and former Nairobi governor aspirant Miguna Miguna was aware of the latest development that disfigured Linturi’s academic status.

Babu Owino too intimated that he was eagerly waiting for Miguna Miguna’s response on the issue.

Others turned the topic into a comical scene.

The Senator’s academic credentials were in question even before the August poll as the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) listed him among other 106 leaders who had integrity issues.
