Education CS Amina Mohamed

Hassan Wanini Mvurya, son of Kwale Governor Salim Mvurya, scored 440 marks out of a possible 500, bringing honour to the county chief and to the region at large.

Excellence

Hassan did his KCPE at Likunda Primary School in Ukunda.

Olive Mwea Wachira of Riara Road Primary in Nairobi, and Rawlings Odhiambo of Kakamega Hill School, however, emerged the top students in this year's KCPE exams.

Among the schools which topped the KCPE exams were Mtwapa Elite Academy Kilifi, Busy Bee Academy, Light Academy, St Kevin Schools, Sheikh Zayed Primary and Light Academy, all in Mombasa.

Ikombe Primary­ School in Yatta, Machakos County­, emerged the top school in the country in the results released yesterday.

Overall Performance

Nationally, the following were among the top candidates: Victor Momanyi Mogusu of Emmanuel Springs Academy in Makueni who scored 452, Leonard Asanga of Moi Primary School, Kabarak, 451 and Ashley Wambui Mwangi of Kutus Municipality Primary school, Kirinyaga County with 447 marks.

Form One selection will start on December 3 and qualifiers will join their respective schools in January. Unlike in the past, Form One selection will only be done once without a second selection as has been the case.

Knec chairman George Magoha declared that exam cheating was now history and warned that those still imagining they can circumvent the system that they have no place in the current set-up, where a multi-agency team was working round the clock to secure exams.

Prof Magoha revealed that parents and teachers collected between Ksh1,000 and Ksh90,000 to buy exam questions this year.
