What you need to know:

  • There has been a contradictory performance in English and Kiswahili in the coast region.
  • Lamentations over poor performance in Kiswahili among candidates from the Coast are not a new phenomenon in Kenya.

Recently, I read in the local media about the concern of leaders and education officials in Mombasa over the county’s ‘dismal performance’ in Kiswahili in the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) last year.
