A section of the clergy condemned the Opposition chief as well as KNUT Secretary General Wilson Sossion for their calls to have the results audited.
Led by the ACK Kapsabet Parish Bishop Paul Korir, the church leaders dismissed such calls maintaining that the results were a true reflection of the country's education sector.
They defended Matiang'i of recent criticism by a section of Kenyans highlighting that he should be allowed to implement reforms in the sector.
“The results have also exposed the rot in the education system in Kenya and we should all allow the Education CS to clean it up,” stated Korir.
Similar sentiments were issued by Devolution Cabinet Secretary Mwangi Kiunjuri and nominated MP Sarah Lekorere who dismissed the criticism.
“Why doesn’t opposition leader Raila Odinga see anything positive in the Jubilee administration, even when all other sectors have appreciated the work done?” posed Kiunjuri
Both Odinga and Sossion had raised an alarm regarding the poor performance, with the Secretary General urging that the results be cancelled.
On his part, the CORD leader accused some individuals of orchestrating mass failures asking President Uhuru Kenyatta to form a tribunal to audit the results.
