Kenya: Robbery With Violence Suspect Gets Top Marks in KCPE

A man in remand over robbery with violence charges emerged the best inmate in last year's KCPE with 351 marks. Jimmy Moseti is being held at Ngeria Farm Prison in Uasin Gishu County.

He said he is happy with his performance despite the challenges he went through. Moseti said his secondary school eduction remains a dream because the facilities at Ngeria Farm prison do not offer him an opportunity to join form one.

He lauded his teachers for working hard to ensure that the inmates were well prepared for the examinations. Another candidate who came second from the correctional institution was Emmanuel Kiptoo who scored 313 points.

Kiptoo, who is serving a two-year jail term for theft which ends in June this year, called upon other inmates to take advantage of the education rehabilitation programmes in prisons to attain more knowledge.

Mutahi Emmanuel, serving a four-year jail term for kidnapping, said he hopes to lead a better life when his term comes to an end in December this year. He scored 302 marks. Mutahi said if he gets the opportunity to go to secondary school he will perform even better.
