Street Boy Who Scored 406 in 2018 KCPE Exams

  • A street boy, Abraham John, beat all odds to score 406 marks in the 2018 KCPE exams.

    According to People Daily, the boy took to the streets of Kitale town after losing both of his parents.

    "I lost my parents some years ago and I have been surviving on help from well-wishers," John was quoted.

    It's from the streets that Phillip Nyongesa, the headteacher of King Prince Royal School identified John's brilliance and offered him a scholarship at the school.

    I came across John in the streets and I realised he was a bright boy. I enrolled him and allowed him to learn without having to pay a single cent," Nyongesa stated.

    The boy who attributed his success to hard work and the support by well-wishers hopes to join Lenana High School.

    John appealed for sponsors and well-wishers to support him in acquiring secondary education.

    Elsewhere, a convict serving 30 years’ jail term at Nakuru GK Prisons scored 403 marks in the just released KCPE results.

    Solomon Ngatia, 37, father of two and a class seven dropout from Nyeri was convicted in 2012 for attempted murder.

    He reportedly went on a drinking spree at a pub in Nakuru when a fight occurred and his friend died.

    Ngatia scored 90 in English, Kiswahili 96, Mathematics 68, Science 68 and Social Studies 81.

    In Mwingi, Ashley Mwende, who lost a kidney and had her right hand fractured in a road accident in August, scored 423 marks.

    Fourteen-year-old was among the pupils who survived a road crash on August 4, when their bus was involved in a head on collision and plunged into Kanginga bridge.

    The Mwingi St Gabriel Boarding Primary School candidate wrote her exam with a missing kidney after it was removed following the grisly accident.
