    "I am very happy. Learning is an unendless journey...I go through a lot of policy and proposals and the university had a friendly program," Barasa stated.

    He noted that he had enrolled for yet another masters degree and was working towards attaining a diploma in project management.

    "My education is not to help me secure employment but just to expand my knowledge and help me in my legislative roles," Barasa added.

    During the interview, the controversial legislator reiterated that he had not slapped a contractor at the Baptist Lurare Primary School in Kimilili constituency contrary to a video making rounds on social media.

    Barasa stated that he was signaling the contractor, Stephen Masinde, to zip up his trousers.

    In addition, Barasa stated that as a legislator, he had no mandate to procure or pay contractors. He, however, noted that the process of paying Masinde was in the pipeline.

    "I did not slap him even though some people have come out to support me," he stated. 

    "You cannot go into a learning institution and close it down. Only the Head of State, a court of law and the Minister for Education can do that."
