Netizens are still wondering how Kakamega Senator Boni Khalwale is silent after the results of this year’s Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) were announced on Wednesday.

Dr Khalwale is known for sharing his children’s good performance in national examinations, a “ritual” he diligently performs every year.

But that has not been the case this year.

And Kenyans used to his celebratory messages to his high-performing children, they have resorted to taunting him over his conspicuous silence this time round.

Here are some of their reactions:

Dr Khalwale’s knack for congratulating his children’s performance in past has left Kenyans wondering how many children he actually has.

In April, the lawmaker congratulated his twins for passing the Kenya Certificate for Secondary Education (KCSE).

“Celebrating twin blessings! My family and I thank God together with the teaching & non teaching staff of Alliance Girls High School and Kakamega High School,” Khalwale tweeted.

The twins, Flavia Shimuli Khalwale scored an A- while Stephen Kapten Khalwale scored a C+.

A month before that, Khalwale celebrated his daughter Melissa Khamwenyi Khalwale who scored 402 marks.

In 2014, his daughter, Linda Khalwale, was among the top candidates with 428 marks in KCPE.

In 2016, the former senator celebrated Engine Khalwale’s KCPE performance after he scored 400 marks.

In 2017, he congratulated his daughter Flavia and son Steve for scoring 407 and 402 marks in KCPE.

Dr Khalwale recently caused a stir in the Senate when he told Nominated Senator Gloria Orwoba that he competently understands matters gender because he has “many wives and several daughters.”

His sentiments came after Senator Orwoba urged the committee membership to have more women, saying it would accord impeached Meru Governor Kawira Mwangaza a fair hearing.

While supporting the proposal to have the impeachment motion against Mwangaza heard by an 11-member special committee, Khalwale, who is a member of the proposed committee, said a special team would grant Governor Mwangaza a fair hearing compared to the plenary.
