Economist David Ndii mocks William Ruto’s PhD qualification

By: Muyela Roberto

Economist David Ndii has strongly criticised Deputy President William Ruto's academic credentials and termed them as "a hallmark of insecure scoundrel".

Ndii got into the rant on Thursday, November 8, while responding to a tweet by Ethiopian Prime Minister (PM) Abiy Ahmed who, in the post, included the acronym PhD in his name.

The NASA strategist said it was unnecessary for Ahmed to tell people that he was doctorate degree holder urging that it was a sign of academic credentialism.

Angered by the statement, Ndii responded by branding the post as a bad way of relating with his (PM's) audience.

TUKO.co.ke, understands that on Wednesday, October 24, Ruto defended his thesis on the influence of pollution on riparian land.

Ruto, already boasts of a Bachelors Degree in Botany and Zoology and a Masters Degree in Plant Ecology from the University of Nairobi.

The DP failed to graduate in 2017 for his PhD and when asked why, he claimed that he had failed to meet some required minimum threshold.

Ndii's sentiments were met by mixed reactions and among those who responded castigated him for what they termed as petty criticism.

Some, however, echoed his sentiment by pocking more holes in the DP's academic crowns

True Patriot claimed that Ndii was just envious of the DP's social, economic academic and political status.

Ndii, however, sought to clarify, that he earned his own PhD 20 years ago and that he never uses it to boast.

The Economist was emphatic that earning the degree does not make anyone any better but what they do with it.

Wilson Shollei contradicted Ndii's onslaught towards the DP by saying that if Ruto earned his PhD honestly, then it was worth being celebrated.

Here are other responses on Ndii's jab towards academic credentialism :
