RE: The Universal Doubts over William Rutoâ€™s PhD in Plant Ecology.
By Dorcas Sarkozy
The skepticism over the legitimacy, viability and veracity of William S. Rutoâ€™s PhD in Plant Ecology was inevitable.
Why do I say that?
One word: Globalization.
Not the â€śglobalizationâ€ť we all talk about re: the world economy.
The â€śglobalizationâ€ť I am referring to is as used when one is assessing a system â€“ in this case Kenyaâ€™s educational system.
Add to the suspicion most have over Baby Abbyâ€™s PhD, Kenyaâ€™s reputation on matters of official corruption at the highest level of its government and one begins to see why there is widespread doubt over the manâ€™s Doctor of Philosophy in Plant Ecology.
And the coup dâ€™grace (or is it piece de resistance?) on whether William Ruto satisfied the requirements set forth by the University of Nairobiâ€™s doctoral program â€“ Department of Ecology?
The national consensus that this man William Ruto, along with his boss Uhuru Kenyatta (yes I went there) embody the worst in personal and professional ethics and ethos related to patience and hard work in pursuit of an end â€“ any end â€“ and it becomes very obvious to all why Kenyans are united in questioning the authenticity and veracity of the work that went into satisfying the requirements of William Samoei Rutoâ€™s PhD.
FACT: Any output from a corrupt and rotten system â€“ claimed by a corrupt and rotten person â€“ will always be looked at askance regardless of how authentic and/or viable the output is.
Corrupt and Rotten Input = Corrupt and Rotten Output.
Kenyans have â€śglobalizedâ€ť the countryâ€™s corrupt and rotten educational system onto an equally corrupt and rotten manâ€™s â€śhard workâ€ť and the result is widespread skepticism.
Yes, its that simple, we nolonger trust anything not even an institute of higher learning.
Meanwhile i came across this post that was shared by Muthui Mkenya;
â€śUoNâ€™s faculties of humanities and social science and health sciences conduct #UONGraduation on the first Friday of every December. However, this time round, the date was pushed to the last Friday before Christmas to align with #DrWilliamRutoâ€™s milestones.. Married, has Birthday đźŽ‚ and graduation đźŽ“ on 21st Decâ€¦.. Shameful!!!!â€ť
