The Cabinet Secretary for Education Dr. Fred Matiang’i has received honorary discussion on Social Media following his changes on announcing Kenya Certificate of Primary Exams (KCPE).
The release of the exams caught almost everybody unaware, with the Kenya National Union of Teachers boss, Wilson Sossion, accepting that he was shocked and also surprised by the move, but he, however, welcomed the results.
Kenyans went on praising The CS for the drastic measures that he employed to curb exam leakage, of which bore fruits since no candidate will lose his or her results due to cheating.
“We had only 21 cases of attempted malpractices,’ the CS announced yesterday. “No candidate will not receive results for the first time in history.”
Kenya took to twitter and Facebook to applaud the CS for what he has done, expressing their joy after Matiang’i broke the norm of announcing exams late in December, and also for blocking ways that cartels use to leak exam.
CS Matiang'i reminds one of that teacher who used to mark exam scripts overnight, when others would 'mark' for a whole month. #KCPE2016

Matiang'i makes me have a feeling that Magufuli is overrated.

I want to be a Matiang'i when I grow up. You just cook Ugali in the morning when everyone is expecting tea #KCPE2016
