Ordinary Kenyans are being treated to such theatrics as the drama over politicians' fake degrees continue.

Many of the KOT members are noting the system has unfairly targeted Kenyan job seekers by demanding proof of a degree yet politicians have been getting away with it.

Nairobi Gubernatorial UDA candidate Johnson Sakaja is being investigated if he is part of an international crime syndicate following the controversy surrounding his degree certificate.

In a statement on Friday, Sakaja insisted that no form of intimidation will change the will of the people of Nairobi to have new leadership.

Threats of arrest and persecution by the state will not intimidate us or change the will of the people of Nairobi. Our resolve remains firm,” he said on Facebook.

Sakaja added, “Bwana DCI Kinoti, I'm at my Riverside office, Karibu or let me know if you'd like me to come over. Our office will not install a project on the people of Nairobi.”

Sakaja’s candidature for Nairobi Governor has been hanging in the balance after four complaints were filed with the IEBC Dispute Resolution Committee challenging the credibility of the academic papers he presented to the commission for clearance.

Even Azimio One Kenya presidential candidate Raila Odinga has not been spared. His degree is being scrutinized by KOT who think they can tell a fake from a genuine degree. 

From Twitter to Facebook, the hilarious reactions have gotten traction under the hashtag #Degree.

We sample some below:

@egesicha_When Sakaja asked Wangui " you you'll be?" I knew there's no degree there.😅
