The local university which Joho attended and learnt how to be vocal and dream big
Vice Chancellor, Kuria Thuo says Joho was a duly registered Bachelor of Commerce student who specialized in Human Resource Management.
The private university based in Thika has defended Mombasa Governor, Hassan Joho as a qualified student following his graduation last December.
Vice Chancellor, Kuria Thuo said Joho was a duly registered Bachelor of Commerce student who specialized in Human Resource Management.
"He was on a long-distance programme since 2014 and graduated having satisfied the board of examiners and University Senate," Thuo said.
A statement in the university website describes itself as a hub where quality education for the real world is taught ‘Gretsa University has positioned itself well to play its expected role in the world of reputable institutions of higher learning.
The VC further added that the quality audit by the Commission for University Education (CUE) at the school revealed that it had complied with the set standards and guidelines.
"Late last month, the university was audited simultaneously with all the 70 public and private universities in Kenya," Thuo said.
Gretsa University admitted its pioneer students in September 2006 after receiving the Letter of Interim Authority from the Commission for Higher Education in May 2006.
The clarification is likely to end the campaign by Joho's political competitors who have attempted to discredit his academic qualifications.
Deputy President, William Ruto, a fierce critic of the governor once describe him as an ‘Academic dwarf’.
The VC said that as a university committed to quality education; they only admit and graduate candidates who meet the requirements.
The issue of Joho's degree, viewed as part of the scheme by Jubilee to discredit the governor, in attempt to get support at the Coast.
Joho has come out in recent times with claims that there is a deliberate attempt to lock him out of the August 8 general election on grounds that he is not qualified to run for governor.
"The government must be told that the votes lie with the people. I expect that the worst things will come in the future," Joho said at a recent press conference.
This proofs indeed the governor must have been a ‘keen and hardworking’ student since employees relations (Voters) is one of the key areas covered under HR.
It is in Gretsa University that the governor most definitely learnt how to marshal resources, case in point to transform Mombasa into a dream city in a 33 billion blueprint plan by 2035.
Gretsa University must be where Joho also read about the likes of Karl Max and martin Luther; he shortly announced he will vie for presidency come 2022.
‘Our graduates continue to do us proud as invaluable contributors in the industry in Kenya and the region. They are competent effective workers, job creators, concerned about societal issues and committed to learning as a continuing lifelong experience’. Gretsa University speaks of one of its famous students, Hassan Joho in its website.
This week has been especially good for Joho, On Wednesday the governor flew to the USA to attend an anti-extremism summit effectively ending rumors that he had been banned by the United States due to drug trafficking allegations.
