A document has leaked online allegedly suggesting that Mombasa governor Hassan Joho failed badly in his Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education(KCSE) exams.
This comes days after Education Cabinet Secretary Dr Fred Matiang’i announced he is going for those who acquired university degrees even after failing in their form four exams.
The CS said he will cancel the degree certificates of those who scored a C minus and below in their KCSE exams.
The document which could be fake or real as we are yet to ascertain its veracity shows that Joho scored a D minus in his KCSE exam with an E in maths.
The document indicates the governor who has been at logger heads with the government and has had his security withdrawn sat his form four exam in Serani Secondary School in 1993.
He scored three D plains, one D minus and four E plains, the unverified document shows.
If at all the document is real, then it will raise serious questions how the governor acquired a Degree from Kampala University and a another one from Gretsa University.
How did he join a diploma programme after scoring a D- in his KCSE to start with?
In Kampala University, documents which we have come across indicate that he managed to get a Second Class (Upper Division) and was awarded a degree in Business Administration, Accounting option.
So why how did he qualify for a diploma even though he got a D- in KCSE? How did Joho do a degree in Comme Since Gretsa University which is in Thika offers only a full time Bachelor of Commerce, how did he attend school full time? How did he manage this being a Governor in Mombasa?
Only he can answer those questions.
