Uhuru's son passes KCSE, qualifies for University education

03 March 2016, 20:27

Nairobi - President Uhuru Kenyatta is a happy man as his son has passed the 2015 KCSE examination and is set for University education.

The Standard reports that the President's adopted son Daniel Owira of the Otonglo fame scored a C+ required for university entry in the KCSE results announced Thursday.

Owira of Highway Secondary School rose to national fame with his narrative in Mombasa during the 2013 Kenya Schools, Colleges and Universities Festival and endeared the President to pay his school fees.

"I have today offered full education sponsorship up to the university level to Daniel Owira when he visited me at State House. He is now one of my sons and will give me his report form at the end of every term", Uhuru stated in a statement.

Owira was among students who received their results, which were mixed.

According to the Daily Nation, Education Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i on Thursday announced the formation of an inter-agency team to look into the performance of Form Four candidates in the last three years.

The team is expected to evaluate the performance in the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) examinations with the aim of determining why few candidates attain the minimum C+ grade required for university entry.

The team's report would also help in the curriculum review process, he said.

The team comprises officers from the Ministry of Education, Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development, Teachers Service Commission and Kenya National Examinations Council.
