Jesus Christ! Education CS George Magoha after learning age of Kizito Ezra Sikuta - 16 year old KCSE candidate who emerged position 6 nationally

Education Cabinet Secretary Prof George Magoha has released results of the 2019 Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) which were sat by Form 4 candidates in November.

During the announcement, the Cabinet Secretary made a special mention of most successful underage students who managed to excel despite their relatively young age.

He added that the special category had been introduced after a request from President Uhuru Kenyatta.

"These are the upcoming geniuses. Some of them as as young as 15 years but they are beating up old people," the CS noted.

On learning the age of Kizito Ezra Sikuta - the candidate ranked at position six was only sixteen - Magoha exclaimed loudly before congratulating the top performer.

"We have a new category of the best overall underage children, after a request from the President. This category is for those who are below 16 years. Number one is Kizito Ezra Sikuta from Moi High School Kabarak. Jesus Christ! So this girl is underage, she is 16 years," Magoha exclaimed.

"Number two is Chepkemoi Kelin who is also 16 years. The third one is Njuguna Winnie Wanjiku from Kenya High. We also have from Korir Ruto Duncan from Maranda High School, he is 16. I didn't know someone can survive at Maranda with that age," the CS announced.

Others who were ranked in the list include

5 Wambugu Tracy - Mary Hill Girls

6 Maina Faith Njoki - St Mary''s Igonji

7 Marion Kevin Ikena- Kipsisgis
