Futher in the phone interview, he noted that he did not expect to be a top candidate because he did not always top his class.


“I have always put effort into my studies and when I heard I was Kenya’s number one ,I was over joyous. I did not always top the class, from time to time someone would defeat you. I was in the top 10,” he said.

The young man also said he did a lot of practice in all the subjects and balanced them well so that he could pass in all of them.

He said he would like to pursue medicine in his tertiary level of education.

“I took Maseno University as my first choice, so I would like to join Maseno,” he said when questioned on which university he would like to join.

The results were announced by the Education Cabinet Secretary on the afternoon of Saturday, April 23, at Mitihani House in Nairobi.
