A legend with an unfortunate story and an education victim, Dr. Reuben Savai. Dr Savai was unable to secure formal employment in his country Kenya despite having a diploma and six degrees.

He holds a Bachelor of Arts and another in Science, and has a Bachelor of Arts, a Diploma in Theology, two Bachelor of Education.

He completed 6 degrees to his name, he received a Ph.D. thesis in Kenya and Greece in the field of comparative education. He did not secure jobs and went into politics when he returned to his country.

In the year 1997, Dr Savai contested the Lang'ata parliament and was lost to the then leader of the National Development Party, ODM leader Raila Odinga.

The electoral commission thwarted his attempts to run for the Presidency in 1997 and 2002, did not clear him up from the ECK, because of the lack of materials.

He lived in Kibera slums, died poor in western Kenya and was not employed anywhere in his country and he lived in abject poverty till the end of his life. Who should we blame here?
