US college responds to Kenyans online asking about Uhuru’s degree


A section of Kenyans online recently took to Amherst College official Twitter handle to enquire about President Uhuru Kenyatta’s degree.

One Sitienei Weldon tagged @AamherstCollege this question on March 30: “Did Uhuru Kenyatta graduate from your college?”

The college through its social media handle responded: “@realSitienei Thanks for your question. Uhuru Kenyatta graduated from Amherst College in 1985 with a degree in Economics and Political Science.”



Another user by the name Mr Omoro went further to ask for President Kenyatta’s grades, to which the college responded: “Sorry Mr Omoro. We do not provide personal information like grades about any of our current or former students, faculty or staff.”



Other users went ahead to request for evidence showing President Kenyatta’s graduation, to which the college responded by posting a link to the institution’s photo gallery and a full list of graduates for the year 1985 – and Uhuru Kenyatta’s name was featured.
