WHY MCA’S MUST RUSH TO ACQUIRE A DEGREE

For those looking for MCAs and MPs seat and you don’t have a Degree rush now. You have a whole 18 months. It’s both for the elected and nominated slots. FC

Parliament in January 2017 Amended the Election Act 2011:

Section 8 of the Amendment Act:
Section 22 of the Elections Act, 2011 is amended— Amendment of
section 22 of No.
(a) in subsection (1) by deleting paragraph (b) and 24 of 2011.
substituting therefor the following new
paragraph —
(b) holds—
(i) in the case of a Member of Parliament, a
degree from a university recognized in
Kenya; or
(ii) in the case of member of a county
assembly, a degree from a university
recognized in Kenya.
(b) by inserting the following new subsections
immediately after subsection (1)—
(1A) Notwithstanding subsection (1), this
section shall come into force and shall apply to
qualifications for candidates in the general
elections to be held after the 2017 general
elections.
(1B)

There was a sunset close that protected 2017 candidates.

2022 candidates, run to the nearest University and Enroll!!! Run or you will be chewed by this Law.
Knowing that 80% of MPs have Degrees, this section of the Law may not be amended.
