Kabete MP Ferdinand Waititu got a reprieve Wednesday after the High Court dismissed a case that challenged his academic qualifications.
The case had been filed by Kiambu governor William Kabogo.
Justice Joseph Onguto said in his ruling that the issues Mr Kabogo wanted determined are not within the court’s jurisdiction.
The judge said the issue of leadership and integrity can be dealt with by other institutions, which have mandates under the law.
He therefore struck out the case and dismissed it.
The judge also ordered Mr Kabogo to pay costs of the suit.
The Mr Kabago had sued Mr Waititu claiming that his degree from Punjab University is fake thus he has breached the Leadership and Integrity Act.
Mr Kabogo had argued that the Elections Act requires a candidate for any political position to meet educational, moral and ethical requirements as per the Constitution.
