According to Chebukati, Wanjigi only presented academic transcripts from his ongoing classwork instead of a degree certificate.
Sources have intimated that Wanjigi is currently pursuing a Bachelor of Arts Degree in International Relations and Security Studies at Daystar University.
A confidential letter from the institution told Chebukati that Jimmy Wanjigi is set to graduate in December 2022.
The second reason for cancelling his candidature is failure to meet the deadline of submitting a minimum of 48,000 signatures from at least 24 counties.
He only managed to submit the expected signatures from 23 counties, thereby, missing the mark by one county.
