Fee reward for leading KCPE candidate

Kakamega County Government will pay one year school fees for Aggrey Wabuko Akhanyinya, the young boy from St. Joseph Primary School in Kakamega County who led the Nation in the 2015 KCPE exams.

Speaking at the County Headquarters when he received the champion, Governor Oparanya encouraged Aggrey to focus on his dream of becoming a recognized neurosurgeon not just in the country but the whole world.

Aggrey Akhanyinya scored 449 points out of the possible 500 to emerge the top student.

The announcement by governor Oparanya threw parents, teachers and pupils of St. Joseph primary school who had accompanied him into extended celebrations after the earlier celebrations where they took to the streets of Kakamega town after Akhanyinya emerged best in the 2015 KCPE exams.

Oparanya said his government will also reward other candidates who did the county proud in 2015’s KCPE exams. He said the move will act as an incentive to those sitting the exam in 2016 to work harder.

Akhanyinya attributed his success to hard work and hopes to join Alliance High School in February.
