Kenya’s education sector is headed the right way thanks to one Fred Matiangi who is the country’s Education Cabinet Secretary. Matiang’i has brought sanity to a ministry that has been dealing with a lot challenges for a very long time. He is a no-nonsense leader who should have been appointed Education CS like 10 years ago. His recent rumble which saw a reduced number of cheating cases in the 2016 national examinations shook the country, putting everyone in the Education sector on high alert as they avoided crossing his path.
A reputable public university was recently forced to blow some money on purchasing a newspaper space to apologize to Matiang’i for a minute error that could just be ignored. Jaramogi Oginga Odinga University in Siaya County, on Tuesday December 20 purchased space on a national daily to send their sincere apologies to Fred Matiang’i.
The reputable institution apologized to Matiang’i for getting his name wrong during a recent function held at the university. Well, it may be a professional move that aimed at selling good PR, but most people have criticized it. According to a cross section of Kenyans ,it was not necessary to buy space because of such a minute error.
