This year’s Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCSE) winner, Fwaro Makokha Robinson has set his eyes on Software Engineering.
Fwaro Makhoha Robinson managed to post 431 marks – out of a possible 500 – with the school, Christ the King Academy in Bungoma County, producing 40 pupils with over 400 marks. The boy attributed his success to hard work, commitment and above all, God. Makokha’s father, David Fwaro Wekesa, echoed his son’s sentiments, saying that the excellent results was a big surprise to him. “The excellent results is because of hard work and I’m grateful to God and the teachers for their commitment,” said Mr Wekesa.
The teaching staff, and the school support staff, were also full of praises for the great achievement that Fwaro Makhoha Robinson has shown to the whole country, and the whole world at large. “We had to adjust our minds considering that we had a short school calendar but thank God we managed to post impressive results,” said the school principal, Mr Stephen Chemegere.
“This is the school of kings and queens and they don’t joke when it comes to academics; they win,” added Mr Chemegere.
Since the outbreak of COVID-19 two years ago, school calender has constantly been (badly) adjusted in order to bring it back to its usual three holidays per year system. The usual trend, however, will resume next year when pupils will be going for three holiday-breaks per year.
Christ the King Academy management, full of ecstasy, decided to offer the top mark boy, Fwaro Makhoha Robinson, a 3-day holiday to Mombasa for emerging top student in the country.
