Kenyans were on Wednesday divided about Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho's academic qualifications after a KCSE certificate bearing a name resembling his was leaked.
The certificate belonging to one Hassan Ali indicated that the bearer scored a D minus having sat for his examination in 1993 with many claiming it belonged to the governor.

Mombasa County Communications Director Richard Chacha dismissed the certificate terming it as fake since the name of the Governor had been altered.
