Maraga joins a list of other leaders who received similar awards today. President Uhuru Kenyatta and former prime minister Raila Odinga are also set to receive honorary doctorate degrees from Jaramogi Oginga Odinga University which is holding its 6th Graduation ceremony.
A month ago, the University had only confirmed Raila for the award of honorary doctorate degree in Science before changing its tune to include president Kenyatta.
His inclusion came ahead of his planned two-day tour to Nyanza region. The President toured the region yesterday whereby he launched a Universal Healthcare cover program in Kisumu, among other development projects.
He is expected to complete his two-day tour in the region today.
His visit to Nyanza region is the first ever since his historic handshake with Raila Odinga.
