Popular retired footballer and Jubilee Party candidate for the forthcoming Kibra Constituency by-election Macdonald Mariga, has joined many other Members of Parliament who have in the past been shamed publicly following their education background details.
The quote – ‘results slip does not determine one’s payslip’ – could never be truer with regards to McDonald Mariga.
On Monday, however, his education background came back to haunt him after a twitter user released a statement of Mariga’s KCSE results slip.
One Bel Akinyi tweeted “Mariga has so many D’s in his certificate the only thing he deserves is a D and I’m not here to discuss where”.
She further accompanied her tweet with a KCSE certificate that is alleged to be Mariga’s.

According to the certificate, Mariga allegedly sat for his finals at Kamukunji High School in 2004 and scored a mean grade of D Minus.
Following the release of the results, the Mariga was trending for the better part of yesterday as Kenyans on Twitter reacted to the expose in huge numbers.
Below are samples of some reactions:

Mariga doesn’t have any different with Joho. Second in comand in ODM …. He deserves the best just like the counterpart.
He wants to be kibra MP and he scored D in history and government.
