Media personality Waihiga Mwaura, and National Assembly minority leader Opiyo Wandayi are among the class of 2023 graduates.

The two who received their degrees from Daystar University shared the inspiring news through various social media platforms.

In a tweet posted on his official X account, Wandayi shared a snap – wearing a cap and gown- disclosing that he is the newest law graduate in town.

"One more feather in my cap. LL.B," the lawmaker wrote.

On the other hand, Waihiga Mwaura graduated with a Master's degree in Communication with a concentration in media studies.

Taking to Instagram, the BBC journalist said it was a long-coming achievement and he's proud and grateful for all the support throughout the journey.

"God done did it. What a journey this has been, one I thought would never end (story for another day). But here we are. So many people to thank. My beloved @joyceomondi for all the support through this journey. My family encouraged me to never give up. A very helpful group of people at Daystar University. The PhD students who pushed me on. And to anyone I may have forgotten-thank you. As Malcolm X once said, Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today." #ClassOf2023 #FaithfullisOurGod," he wrote.

In a subsequent post, he shared a clip of him and his wife Joyce Omondi celebrating his new accolade.

"Shangwe na vigelegele!! πŸ™ŒπŸΎπŸ™ŒπŸΎπŸŽ‰βœ¨βœ¨ So proud of this champ right here for all the hard work and resilience he put into this. You are an inspiration my love! Hongera, hongera," the caption reads.

Waihiga exited Citizen TV for BBC early this year. He made his debut on June 5, 2023, when he hosted the show, Focus on Africa.
