Pupils within Mvita constituency who did their 2020 KCPE examination performed dismally in Kiswahili subject following their tendency of speaking Sheng’ language.
Sheng’ is a language embraced by the youthful generation that features a fusion of English and Swahili words.
According to Mvita Member of Parliament Abdulswamad Shariff Nassir, such practice has yielded to poor performance in Kiswahili examination.
He said Kiswahili KCPE examination recorded an aggregate marks of 52.83 compared to English examination that registered 61.92 mini score within his constituency.
Nassir also said Mombasa being a metropolitan city has also contributed to the dismally performance of the pupils specifically in Kiswahili examination.
The legislature challenged students in his Constituency to properly study and revise all the subjects since Kiswahili is one of them and that can pull them down in the total marks during examinations.
He urged those preparing to do their examination in early Mach, 2022 to prepare well so that they also perform well.
Meanwhile, Nassir has assured parents, students and education stakeholders in the Sub-county that the revision program in both primary and secondary schools within Mvita constituency will be enhanced.
“This program proved to be very productive and helped out many students to perform well in their KCPE examinations and should be enhanced,” said Nassir.
According to the Lawmaker, the revision program has been very critical especially after pupils were forced to stay at home for long following the Covid-19 pandemic.
He said more revision materials will be availed in various primary and secondary schools within his constituency to enhance revisions among pupils and students.
