DP RUTO FAILED UNIVERSITY EXAMS TERRIBLY as fails to graduate from University of Nairobi after ‘falling below standards’
out original research themselves, a condition Ruto is likely to have met.
In June this year, the deputy President presented his PhD progress report to the director of School of Biological Sciences Prof Paul Ndegwa, accompanied by his supervisor Prof Jenesio Kinyamario, on the impact of human activities on riparian reserves at Saiwa Swamp, Trans Nzoia County.
Ruto’s handlers on Wednesday posted a series of photos of the PhD candidate in Saiwa swamp in gumboots collecting water samples.
They also posted 2012 photos showing Ruto leaving class together with other students, and another from the same year where he is making a power-point presentation titled “Water Sampling”.
He is using an old, black HP laptop.
He is also seen in the recent photo in a checked suit giving a progress report to his supervisor and Dr Ndegwa.
Ruto enrolled for an Msc degree in 1991 but deferred his research until 2008 when he graduated with a Masters of Science Degree in Plant Ecology.
The news will come as a disappointment to President Uhuru Kenyatta who will himself an honorary doctorate degree from the university on Friday.
In August 2014, while laying the foundation stone of the 22-storey University of Nairobi Towers, the President urged Ruto to complete his studies.
“It gives me great joy to be here once again! I am happy to join you at this ceremony, at an institution which many proudly know as their esteemed alma mater! They include my Deputy who I hear is back here to complete his PhD! As president, I have done my part, always encouraging him to work hard and please his processors and supervisors in order to do well and not to embarrass us,” Uhuru said in his off the cuff address amidst laughter from the gathering.
