Kenyans on twitter have joined NASA on a bandwagon pressuring Education CS Matiang’i to resign over the poor Kenya certificate of secondary Education K.C.S.E results.
The results that saw only 10% of the students who sat for the exam qualifying to get a spot to pursue higher learning were released last week, just three weeks after the completion of the said exam.
Kenyans on twitter have expressed that the exams were poorly marked due to the pressure by the CS to release the exams early. the examiners also complained of the deplorable state and long working hours while marking the exams. Some of the teachers marking the exams claimed that the marking of the scripts may have not been accurate.
Here are some of the reactions by Kenyans on twitter
Under Matiangi, in two years, Kenya has yielded over 1.1m pupils who have no access to university education. In the two years, only 154k have qualified for university. We are condemning a generation to oblivion. The consequences will be unprecedented

A secondary school student spends FOUR YEARS or 35,040 HOURS in school learning.
Then a stressed examiner spent FIVE MINUTES marking the pain, sweat, tears that a student laboured for 35,040 Hours.
Reason? Because Matiang'i wants a record breaking legacy.#KCSE2017
