Top Student

14-year-old Robinson Fwaro, who scored 431 marks on the KCPE examinations in 2022, aspires to become a software engineer.

Wednesday, the student from Christ the King Primary School in Kanduyi constituency, Bungoma county, disclosed his ambition during an interview at his previous school.

Fwaro stated that he is overjoyed and was not expecting to be the first student in Kenya.

“I expected to be among the top ten students in the country but this has come to me as a surprise,” he said.

The top student expressed a wish to enroll at Alliance Boys High School.

“I have been yearning to join Alliance Boys High School to realise my dream of becoming a software engineer. I know that with my parents support I will make it,” he said.

The top student attributed his accomplishment to school discipline, hard study, and teacher cooperation.

Fwaro stated that his parents provided him with substantial support. He is the oldest of two children; his younger sibling is four years old.

Fwaro stated that he had numerous obstacles in his studies, one of which was the short-term education calendar, which left them little time to read and prepare for national tests.

“Despite having the short school calendar we had no choice but to adjust fast and make it work,” he said

David Fwaro Wekesa, the father of Fwaro, is a businessman in Bungoma town and a former member of the county legislature.

Wekesa expressed his delight by stating that his son’s success is the result of years of discipline throughout his primary education.

According to him, Fwaro has always intended to attend a national school and major in engineering at the university.

“I have never had hard times with my son as he is always self-driven in his school work and I had no doubt that he was going to score good results,” he said.

Wekesa praised the school’s commitment to ensuring that pupils had sufficient time to study.

Night Karani, the mother, stated that his son’s accomplishment was the result of prayer and labor.

Amos Nyongesa, the school’s assistant principal, expressed gratitude to God for the positive results despite the numerous obstacles they encountered. He reported that one of their candidates had passed away.
