Is your University degree fake? CS Matiang’i is after you!

By Edwin Muthabuku | February 17th 2017
You have every reason to worry if your university degree is fake or attained on questionable grounds.

This is after CS Matiang’i issued an order to the Commission for University Education (CUE) to release results of an audit it carried out on academic papers.
Can you even imagine starting all over again?

The hustles to sit through 3 hour long lectures again for those 13-week long semesters with younglings taking selfies in class for their Instagram stories and you might as well fall as a good caption for them ‘#OldManInClass Lol’ That should have already sent some serious chills down your spine!

If you were admitted to a university without meeting the minimum entry requirements and you claim to have a degree certificate, then you might as well be the best specimen those younglings Instagram captions.

Come to think of it, though, it is a good move because we will reduce the number of these countless ‘half-baked’ graduates and now have a good number of graduates who are skill-equipped for their relevant professions.

No one wants a quack as an employee or colleague, do you? I guess that’s a big NO!

We need to laud CS Matiang’i and give him all our support as Kenyans as he streamlines the education sector.

 Commercializing of the education sector is just unacceptable. I wish I could take Matiang’i on a tour to some of these third-floor colleges where to get to them you have to pass through a club and a wines and spirits shop.

You even wonder how they have evening classes…especially on a Friday. CS Fred Matiang’i was cut for the Education docket job and whoever wins the forthcoming General election, please retain him; Aluta Continua!
