While delivering his speech at the State House, Mombasa, the Head of State challenged institutions of higher learning to provide courses that will equip learners with necessary skills to enable them secure employment upon graduation.

"I also call upon colleges and universities to offer courses that are carefully tailored to ensure that their graduates are employable in terms of skills, knowledge and work ethic. We want Kenyans to have the necessary competencies that position them to be globally competitive, and to quickly find employment when they graduate," he said.

But Miguna, a fierce critic of Jubilee administration, said Uhuru was the wrong person to offer advisory in matters education since he 'has never graduated and lacks skills to enable him secure employment'.

The deported lawyer further poked holes into Uhuru's presidency saying it is 'illegitimate' adding he got it courtesy of his father, founding President Mzee Jomo Kenyatta, who he labelled a 'looter'.

"You became president not because you were a graduate (you flopped every examinable test). You had no "employable skills." You were not a diligent worker. You had neither a profession nor an occupation. You became president - ILLEGITIMATELY - because your father was a looter," he tweeted.
