Management Consultant and ODM activist Eliud Owalo has denied allegations that his Kenyatta University undergraduate degree is fake.
Owalo’s academic scandal Â had been exclusively reported by the news blog Kahawa Tungu with the issue quickly going viral in social media. Here is the response from Owalo:
Based on recent propaganda perpetrated by corruption networks that are intent on hitting back and perhaps with what I view as a futile attempt to silence Eliud Owalo, I have deemed it imperative to bring to the public domain my Kenyatta University undergraduate degree certificate for the benefit of the larger public. My move is also driven by the principle of full public disclosure and access to information as per the dictates of the Kenyan Constitution.
Any interested party is at liberty to walk into Kenyatta University to ascertain the authenticity or otherwise of my academic credentials.
However, I have no hesitation in re-affirming to anybody and everybody who cares to listen that the barbaric and retrogressive tactics that Evans Kidero deployed to knock -out Bishop Margaret Wanjiru in the run-up to the 2013 polls are both irrelevant and inapplicable to one Eliud Owalo.
Equally, I confirm herein that I will be seeking the ODM ticket and subsequently submit my candidature for an elective office within the great County of Nairobi in the 2017 elections. The die is cast, I am in this for the long haul and people must be prepared to live with it.
Owalo also posted his undergraduate certificate to set the matter to rest.
