Top 2019 KCPE Candidate Andy Michael Munyiri who scored 440 marks out of a possible 500 marks spoke to reporters on Monday shortly after the results were announced.

The cheerful candidate who sat for his papers at the Damacrest Group of Schools in Thogoto, conveyed that he would like to pursue a career as an Automotive Engineer following his sterling performance in the national exam.

"I am so excited, I never even thought I could top in the whole country!

"I give most credit to my teachers because they are the ones behind all the preparations. In our school we were told not to be overexcited before and even during the exams, so it is all due to their preparations. And above all, it has taken the hand of God," Munyiri stated.

He narrated that his family had also been a great source of inspiration, beginning with his father who is an insurance marketer and his mother.
