The county government of Kakamega will pay one year high school fees for the boy who emerged the best in Kenya in KCPE who hails from the county.
Aggrey Akhanyinya who was a student at St. Joseph’s Academy in Kakamega town will have the privilege of being paid fees for one year by the county government.
Revealing this, the Kakamega governor Wycliffe Oparanya said that the county was pleased with the good performance and had decided to pay his fees so as to encourage the candidate to work harder and other students within the county to follow suit.
“This is so encouraging considering that Kakamega is a rural county,” said the governor adding that he learnt of the achievement a day after the results were announced when he hosted the county sports day.
The thirteen year old who aspires to be a neurosurgeon in future told the governor that he had anticipated passing but not emerging the best in the country. See also Kakamega County produces the best KCPE candidate in the country.
He attributed his success to help from God, his encouraging parents, the school’s hard work and colleagues who worked hand in hand with him throughout his years of study at the academy.
The governor asked his parents to present all the requirements from the school he will be selected in to his office for the money to be deposited to the school’s account.
Aggrey scored a total of 449 marks out of 500 and emerged the top in Kenya.
