TWO private schools in Kakamega whose KCPE results were cancelled in 2011 have perfumed well in last's exams results released yesterday.
Fecebeth Academy in Kakamega town produced the top student in the county. Natali Musila scored 422 marks. St Joseph's Academy was the top school in the county.
In 2011 exams the results for all 35 pupils of St Joseph's were canceled after irregularities in the Swahili paper while Facebeth had its results withheld for irregularities as well the same year.
Pupils from the two schools poured into the streets of Kakemaga town to celebrate their good results yesterday. St Joseph's director Sister Philippa Sulumeti said she had expected the good performance by the school because she had prepared the candidates well.
"We did it in 2011 but we were told that there were irregularities in Swahili. We have been vindicated by God, who has remembered us and lifted us from sadness to joy," she said.
Natali said that she did expect she didn't expect to be the top student in the county although she would do well. "have no words to explain my feelings. I want to be an aeronautical engineer when I grow up. I only pray that God help me to become what I want in future," she said.
"I encourage candidates for this year not to give up and work smart and not to work hard." Natali's mother Eusebia Musila said her daughter is a hard worker and deserved the results.
She says Natali is bright, humble, hardworking and respectful. School director Ruth Minishi said she was always the top student in her class adding that she is "a good team-builder and leader."
