Deputy President William Ruto is now officially Dr. Ruto after he was conferred with a Doctorate degree in Plant Ecology by the University of Nairobi this afternoon.
It will be a triple celebration for the deputy president who will also be marking his 52nd birthday as well as his 27th wedding anniversary to his wife Rachel.
Kenyans however had mixed feelings and while some congratulated the DP for no mean fete, others doubted the ingenuity of the Doctorate while others asked him to hitherto drop his ‘vices.’

Robert Mugabe had 7 academic degrees. If you include honorary degrees, they total to 18. These are the degrees he used to rule Zimbabwe like his village tuckshop, torturing and murdering political opponents, vote-rigging & collapsing the economy. Know who your leaders look up to.
