What are the best certificate and diploma courses to do in Kenya in 2020 intake with a D+ (plus)?

This is the question most people who suffered from Matiang’i  ‘brutality’ or were just not lucky to get a grade that can secure them a place in Kenyan Universities to do a degree course.

If you scored a  D+ (plus), D (plain) or just a D- (minus) in your KCSE, your dreams are still valid, I have compiled a list of marketable courses Diploma and certificate courses that you can pursue in Kenyan colleges and universities. 

Remember, life is not about scoring an A in Kenya, there are many opportunities that can come your way because, with a D+, you can pursue a marketable course in Kenya and be employed by Top Best Paying Companies to Work for in Kenya 2020  or start the most profitable business in Kenya before the end of  2020 and become a millionaire. There are many business opportunities in Kenya for youth that require less education.

Some of the best colleges where you can pursue the courses include the Technical University of Kenya, Nairobi Institute of Business Studies and Utalii College.

The courses usually take 3 months to 2 years.
