  •  Nairobi Senator Mike Sonko on Sunday explained that there was a mass failure in the 1992 KCSE exam, hence, the 'E' grade he scored the Mathematics subject.

    Through his Twitter account, the Senator indicated that at the time he was sitting for the exam, scoring an E in Maths was an average performance.

    He further mentioned that the entry grade for University was lowered to C+ because most candidates had not met the required entry points.


    In another tweet, Sonko added that his overall grade, C- (minus), was good performance compared to the 4 Es that one of his political opponents had scored. He did not, however, mention the name of the opponent but only referred to him as a manager.

    The Senator who is seeking to be the next Governor of Nairobi submitted his nomination papers on Friday amid concerns that he had not met the requirements.

    Sonko's grade in Mathematics elicited mixed reaction among Kenyans on social media.

    “Now I understand why Sonko had faithfully concealed his KCSE certificate, an E in maths and he still wants to manage the billions in Nairobi? Owinoh Peter posted.

    "An E in Maths? How's Sonko going to manage 20 Billion city revenue."Kamau Muniu‏ inquired.

    "How did Mike Sonko forge a certificate and give himself an E in maths? Or did he think that E is for Excellence?" Smooth Operator indicated.

    “A high school grade does not determine one's achievement after school. Go ahead," Abdullahi Yusuf‏ posted.

    Sonko’s certificate drama comes only a week after Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero blasted him on Jeff Koinange Live (JKL) show indicating that he (Sonko) did not even know the name of the visiting United Nations(UN) Secretary General Mr Antonio Guterres.   ©   2018   All Rights Reserved
