Its medicine, not wheelbarrow, for MP Wahome’s daughter

Kandara MP Alice Wahome showered praises on her daughter after graduating with a Masters in Medicine - Obstetrics and Gynaecology at the University of Nairobi (UoN).

The MP, a close ally of Deputy President William Ruto has however been encouraging other Kenyan children to take the wheelbarrow and do menial jobs.

But taking to her social media pages, an elated Wahome congratulated her daughter for defying the odds to clinch her masters and went on to encourage other girls to study and achieve their dreams.

"As a woman leader who believes that there are equal opportunities for both the boy and the girl child, I can say that you’ve really done us proud and you’ve set a great example. God bless you in your future endeavors Nyawira.

To every girl out there who has a dream, there are no limits. Go out there and conquer the world!" Wahome exclaimed.

Nyawira was one of the 6,400 graduands who were given the power to read at the University on Friday, December 17.

Speaking during the graduation ceremony, UoN Chancellor Dr. Vijoo Rattansi urged graduands not to compare themselves with others.

"As you go into the world, arm yourself with the wisdom of the popcorn. All of them are placed in the same pot under the same condition but pop differently. 

"In this cycle of life, don’t compare yourself to others. You may not walk into a job right away or stumble across an idea that will not only benefit you but change the world but assuredly I say unto you, your time to pop is coming," she added.

A number of other Higher learning institutions also held their graduation on Friday, December 17 including; Moi, Kabarak, and Kenyatta Universities.  

Some of the known personalities who graduated from various Institutions on Friday include; Nandi Hills MP Alfred Keter, Former K24 TV news anchor Yussuf Ibrahim, World Javelin Champion Julius Yego, Middle-distance runner and former world champion Janeth Jepkosgei and internet sensation Bevalyne Kwamboka.
