Muted celebration over exam results

The usual pomp and colour was lacking as top students received the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education examination results on Monday.

The subdued celebrations were attributed to the Education ministry’s decision not to rank schools and learners.

Some of the candidates attended schools in Kisumu, Siaya, Kakamega, Vihiga and Kisii counties.

Alex Onsarigo, 15, scored the highest marks in Kisumu — 438. The former MM Shah Primary School pupil was the best performer in his class.

“Though I may not be able to know how my fellow students in other schools in the county performed, I am very happy with my performance,” he told the Nation at the school on Tuesday.


He wants to join Alliance High School, and so does Bartlet Omondi from Golden Elite Schools, who scored 431 marks. The school’s director, Mr Charles Ochome, said 12 his pupils had scored more than 400 marks.

In Homa Bay, St Peter’s Cape View School is among those whose candidates attained the best scores in the county. Mel Christine and Villa Tevin Singei from the school tied with 438 marks.

They were followed by Stacy Kimberly Adhiambo, who scored 423 marks.

School director Peter Ongoro said three other candidates scored 423 marks while 25, out of a total of 70 candidates, attained 400 marks and above.

Kakamega Hill School produced two learners with 437 marks. The private school also produced the county’s top candidates. Sharon Rotich Chemtai and Wilson Nyabochoa Mutanya tied with 437 marks.

Rufinus Ogutu was third with 434; Doreen Atieno Oduor followed with 432 and Derrick Omuyonga capped the top five positions, with 429.

At Isanjro Primary School in Kakamega North, the top scorer was Seth Baraza Wanyonyi with 434 marks followed by Wekesa Shisia and Jennifer Akinyi with 402 marks.

County Knut chairman Patrick Chungani said the lack of ranking had left parents and teachers in the dark on how candidates and schools had performed.

In Nyamira, Eronge SDA Boarding Primary School’s top performer had 429 marks, according to headteacher Evans Nyauncho Osinde.

In the South Rift, Kericho Boys Boarding Primary School’s Hezron Kipkemoi Ng’etich joined the league of learners with 434 marks. -
