Nairobi Senator and gubernatorial hopeful Mike Sonko has come out to defend the E he got in Mathematics when he sat for his KCSE back in 1992.
“Watu wangu getting an E in maths in 1992 haikuwa mbaya kulikuwa na mass failures mean grade ya kuingia campo was C+ and my mean grade was C-,” Sonko posted on his official Twitter on Sunday, March 19.
Meaning: (My people, scoring an E in maths back in 1992 was not a big deal, there was mass failure. The cut off for university was C+ and I got C-).
He went on to add: “Opponent wangu anaejiita ‘manager’ alikuwa na 4 E’s.” It is still unclear the ‘manager’ he was referring to.
Sonko was a topic of discussion in many forums on Friday, March 17, when he submitted his nomination papers for Nairobi Governor after given the vital certificate of good conduct by the CID just in the nick of time.
The controversial politician almost got locked out of the nominations and accused the Jubilee Party of being hell bent on kicking him out of the process.
Below is a breakdown of what Sonko scored according to the KCSE certificate:
History and government B-
Geography D plain
Physical Science D plain
Biological sciences D plain
Social Education and Ethics B-
Agriculture D plain
Commerce D +
He had a mean grade of C-.
Sonko is fighting it out with former Gatanga MP Peter Kenneth, former Starehe MP Margaret Wanjiru and Dagoretti South MP Dennis Waweru for the JP ticket. The winner faces a tough duel with the incumbent Governor Evans Kidero (ODM).
