What happened in 2016 remains in 2016. The year that many people want to forget had one more surprise for Kenyans as Education CS Fred Matiang’i released the KCSE results yesterday.

For the first time ever, the results were released in the same year the exam was conducted. Also, they were released outside Nairobi.

Matiang’i has been lauded for cleaning up the exam sector by eliminating cheating in the two major exams. With KCSE being the ‘most leaked’ one, as well as being the most important one, the results were closely watched.

Matiang’i did not disappoint and the biggest talking point is the 141 total As nationwide. To put that into perspective, schools like Alliance, Mang’u, Maranda, Starehe, Kabarak and a few others get nearly 200 plan As every year. This year, many could not even get 10.

As usual, Kenyans took to Twitter to sing Matiang’i’s praises. Here are some of the tweets.
