Embakasi East MP Babu Owino, very proud, decided to show off his academic achievements.

Today's controversial politician flaunted his two-degree certificates that depict his intellectualism during his time as a student at the University of Nairobi.

According to the documents posted on all his social platforms, the vocal legislator got a First Class in his Bachelor of Science (Actuarial Science) and scooped a Second Class Upper in his law degree.

However, Babu Owino's tenure as the Chairman of the students union at the University of Nairobi was clouded with claims of hooliganism and conmanship. One would be forgiven for thinking that the flamboyant former student leader would hold such high grades.

It is not a secret that many of the Members of parliament have been called out or accused of barely finishing their primary or high school.

However, Babu Owino is among the few MPs who can boast about their academics.

The lawmaker recently shared some of his high school report forms proving that he is a wizard in Mathematics. Babu, an alumnus of Kisumu Boys'High School, shared three of his report forms on his Facebook page that showed he was an excellent student. 

The reveal comes in the backdrop of his online classes that left Kenyans in awe due to his secondary and primary curriculum grasp. The lawmaker used to hold online courses in aid of school children whose education had been halted after President Uhuru Kenyatta ordered the closure of learning institutions following the encroachment of Covid-19.
