Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho has "taken pride" in his D- in the 1993 KCSE examination saying failure pushed him to succeed. Joho has been accused of forging the certificate for the secondary school national exam to get admission to the University of Nairobi. The claim - that the Governor has denied - is that he presented a forged 1992 examination result slip with a C+ mean grade for a Bachelor of Commerce degree in Human Resource Management.
"Why would I want to forge my own certificate... I am holder of a D- but I have changed that to progress. I will progress and you will not stop me," he said. "If you do not do well there are many ways to further your education." He said he and President Uhuru Kenyatta differ in the way they were raised and that the latter's education may have been easier than other people's. "Kuna tofauti kubwa kimaisha ikiwa utalelewa kwa familia ya kitajiri na familia isiyo ya kitajiri (There is a very big difference between growing up rich and poor)," he said.
