Public Figure and Politician Alinur Mohamed,  has sparked mixed reactions from netizens after he spoke about  students who scored an E in the KCSE results that were released on Monday January 8.

The politician took to his social media saying that it is sad that a student would take home an E, a grade that he says one could score without stepping in class or reading.

”48,174 candidates have scored an E in the 2023 KCSE exams. Teachers taking money from parents for 4 good years and returning their kids with grade Es? A grade you can score without stepping in class or reading, just writing your name and submitting the answer booklets. Sad!” he wrote.

As some social media users made fun of the opinion, a portion of them faulted him for putting the blame on teachers ,saying that they played their part and that it was upon the students to play theirs.

Here are some of the reactions:

”You can’t blame teachers,” a social media user reacted.

”Mwalimu araruee Mtoto Kichwaa Aingizeee Wisdom Apo Ndani…Watoto ndo mafalaa Tu..Hio ni Kujitakiaa,” another commented.

”Maybe they will score an A in the class of life… success is a process. We are abled differently” another one reacted.

”Ako na machungu ni kama alipata hio grade,” @msodoki ke reacted.

”Cuzo alipata D- but ni mrembo …er results on my story,” @andy commented.

There was an increase in the number of students who scored E compared to  30,822 candidates of 2022.

While all hope is not lost for the students who have been considered to have performed poorly, Kenyans hold different beliefs on the scores of last year’s students, some seeking to encourage those who did not manage to get a good score that not performing so well is not the end of the road for them.
