The high court of Kenya has revoked degree requirements for Kenyan Presidential Candidates.

Any presidential candidate without a university degree can now vie for Presidency.

The verdict by Justice Anthony Mrima renders political positions of the Governor's, Mps, MCAs  and presidency, free for all.

Justice Anthony Mrima squashed the notion that presidential candidates should possess a higher education degree which was a measure that one will deliver his or her duties effectively. 

In February 2022, The High Court on Thursday temporarily suspended an election law that bars aspirants without university degrees from seeking parliamentary seats.

Justice Mrima directed Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) to clear aspirants who wanted to contest but did not have degrees.

In September 2022, high court ruled that Governor aspirants do not need a university degree to be eligible, the High Court in Milimani Nairobi said the education requirement is unconstitutional.

Justice Anthony Mrima said the qualification for the election of a county governor is similar to the eligibility for election for a Member of a County Assembly (MCA), who are only required to provide a KCSE certificate
