Kenyans on Twitter are predicting how a Matiang’i presidency would look like

Kenyans on Twitter are creating scenarios of what would happen if Education Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i was the president.

The CS has won the hearts of many for the ongoing reforms at the Education ministry, something that has made his predecessors look like quacks.

This year, both the KCPE and KCSE were the most guarded national exams the country has ever witnessed.

Indeed, during the release of the results on Thursday, the minister revealed that no results have been cancelled this year as a result of cheating.

Dr Matiang’i had to ditch his usual work station at the ministry headquarters in Nairobi to personally supervise the exam process alongside other senior ministry and government officials.

His accolades came from President Uhuru Kenyatta in a statement to newsroom on Thursday, shortly after the CS ambushed the nation with impromptu KCPE results.

“The President commends the Cabinet Secretary for Education, Dr Fred Matiang’i, his colleagues at ICT and Interior, and their teams, the Kenya National Examinations Council, the Teachers Service Commission and other stakeholders for a flawless execution of their mandate,” read the statement in part.

And now KOT, in a hashtag #IfMatiangiWasPresident, are predicting how a Matiang’i presidency would look like.

All praises.

If only he wasn’t in charge.

Some saw the irony.

Others predicted the future.
