This Video of Matiang’i Praying for KCPE Candidates Will Melt Your Heart

A video of Interior CS Fred Matiang’i leading KCPE candidates in prayer has shed light on the Tough-talking CS’s softer side.

Matiang’i is known for His no-nonsense and unforgiving attitude. Him, therefore, humbling Himself for prayers comes as a pleasant surprise to Kenyans.

Encouraging pupils at the Gilgil DBE and Gilgil Garrison Primary Schools, the CS prayed for spiritual guidance for 2019 Candidates, as They commence the 3-day-long test.

“Our Father and our God who art in Heaven, we come before your Holy presence this morning with thankful hearts,” Matiang’i begun before committing the Standard Eight pupils into God’s care during the exam period.

“…we commit them into your caring and loving hands, that you may grant them confidence…success,” He continued, taking time to pray for the Pupils’ parents, and all 2019 candidates in the country at large.

In the prayer, the CS was also quick to express gratitude for the chance to serve the Country.

Matiang’i was part of a Cabinet Secretary group dispatched to different parts of the country, to oversee the opening of exam containers, a storage measure instituted by the Government to curb exam leakage.

“We have an obligation to support our children and inculcate in them integrity, truthfulness, and honesty among other moral values. Administration of credible KCPE exams is one of the platforms for us to demonstrate our commitment to meeting this obligation,” Matiang’i said on Tuesday.

In the days leading to the National Exams kick-off, Matiang’i, together with Education CS George Magoha, had issued strict warnings to individuals intending to engage in exam malpractices, with the promise of action as serious as imprisonment.

The KCSE exam will kick off on Nov. 4 under similar scrutiny from top Government Officials.
