Kenya: 24 Tana Delta Pupils to Join National Schools

Twenty four students in Tana delta who sat their Kenya Certificate of Primary Education last year qualified for secondary schools. The best pupil scored 381 marks.

The best male candidate hailed from R/Mwewe Primary while the best female overall candidate from Arap Moi Girl's High school scored 366.

Speaking to journalists in Malindi the District Education Officer Fredrick Njuga said 224 pupils scored between 250 and 299 while 11 scored between 300 and 349.

"Those who failed were those who were highly affected by the clashes after their parents escaped from their homes but the general results improved from the previous year," he said. Njuga said normalcy had returned and appealed to parents and pupils from both communities to return to their homes.
