Speaking to Citizen TV, the top student Obura said he was overjoyed when he was announced the top student nationally. He disclosed that he always put effort into his studies.
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.
Candidates can check their results by sending their KCSE index number via the SMS number 20076.
