Kenya: Uthiru Celebrates Top Student Njomo's Triumph

Wachira Njomo from Uthiru Genesis emerged among the three top students in last year's KCPE results that were announced yesterday.

Njomo, who got 430 marks, was described by the school head teacher, James Gichoya, as hardworking. Gichoya said Njomo went the extra mile to ensure that he was top of his class all the time.

"He did more than what teachers gave in class," Gichoya said. Njomo said he knew he will perform well but did not expect to be among the top in the country.

"I knew I will pass but I never thought I would be among the top students," said a jovial Wachira who was accompanied to the school by his mother.

Attributing his success to his teachers and parents, Wachira said he would like to join Alliance Boys High School and would want to become a surgeon in the future.
