Cynthia Deborah, a KCPE candidate from Kakamega Primary School, Kakamega County, who scored 431 marks has urged well wishers to support her to join high school after scoring 431 marks. Deborah, who comes from a very humble background and has faced a struggle to remain in school is delighted with the result she scored.
Speaking to the press, she revealed that she purposed to score over 450 marks but is thankful to God for giving her the grace to score the marks she attained. However, she isn’t sure if she’ll achieve her dream of joining Pangani Girls High School and pursue Law later on, which is her dream career. She stays with her a single mother who may not be in a position to support her education further.
Former KNUT representative Scholastica Ngina has urged well wishers to come in and support the candidate. She said that despite the challenges Deborah went through she was able to perform close to those in private schools, adding that she would’ve posted better results if she were in a better position.
Moreover, Ngina has praised teachers and parents especially from public schools for working extra hard to ensure that students performed well. Two students from Kakamega Hill school and Fesbeth academy-Rick Ochieng and Vivian Wachira-scored 433 marks to emerge top in Kakamega in the KCPE exams.
