The drama surrounding Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho’s questionable secondary school education got Kenyans wondering whether their president’s papers were verifiable.

A group of curious citizens wondered out loud on social media whether President Uhuru Kenyatta graduated from America’s Amherst College with an economic and political science degree as is listed under his credentials.

Somebody actually went through the trouble of contacting the liberal arts college to confirm if indeed the country’s fourth head of state schooled and graduated there in 1985.

It turns out he did. The prestigious institution confirmed that President Kenyatta was indeed a student there stopping short of providing personal information of its famous student.
