Parents and teachers are so happy that the Education ministry released KCPE exam results early that they want CS Fred Matiang’i retained.
Matiang’i announced the results on Tuesday and thanked President Uhuru Kenyatta for giving funds to ensure a smooth process.
The National Parents Association wants Uhuru to name Matiang’i Education minister when he names his cabinet after his swearing-in for the second term on Tuesday.
Matiang’i was appointed acting Interior Cabinet Secretary after the death of Joseph Nkaissery.
Association chair Nicholas Maiyo noted credibility in the examinations and added learners will have enough time to prepare for high school.
Maiyo said they want Matiang’i to carry on with his strict reforms that have transformed the sector.
He acknowledged the President’s liberty to choose whoever he deems fit but noted Matiang’i’s “good work”.
