A long time before the coming of Arabs and Europeans to Africa, the African people had created their own systems of education; although the systems varied from one community for the other, their very own goals were often noticeably similar. Otiende, (1980). In independence in 1963, education was viewed as the ways to eradicating low income, ignorance and disease coming from Kenya. English language was seen by society since the foundation of livelihood because it was applicable for one to essentially understand nearly anything in live. It is vital towards the technological knowledge and very important to the sociable economic progress the nation. For that reason, it is required both in major school and secondary levels in Kenya.

Language proficiency is vital in promoting student/pupils' understanding, presentation and examination of articles, especially when considering reading and answering queries in assessments and this correlates with all other subjects as well except Kiswahili. The use of sheng has been appreciated by almost all including several parents plus the media. This coupled with poor pronunciation simply by some educators, has also enjoyed a role in reducing the proficiency in English language.
