Dismas Obare Ndubi, a pupil at Ekerubo Gietai Boarding Primary School in Nyamira North Sub-county in Nyamira, has emerged one of the best candidate in the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) Examinations after scoring 422 marks.
Speaking to KNA at his parents’ residence in Kisii Town, Ndubi attributed his KCPE success to prayer, hard work, discipline and support from his teachers and family members.
“While preparing for my examinations throughout the Covid-19 period, I joined my uncle (a form-four candidate) who helped me with my revision and his support has finally paid off,” an elated Ndubi said.
Veronica Obare, Ndubi’s mother, could not hide her joy as she embraced her son, congratulating him for the wonderful performance.
“I was so eager to get the results on behalf of my son, today. As a top performer, my son never scored below 400 marks and I kept wondering what would happen if he did not attain the expected results. But I thank God that he has performed extremely well,” she said.
The School Principal, Mr Justus Matayo, said that Ndubi’s performance has put the school on the Kenyan academic map since he is among the top performers in the country.
“So far, Dismas is the top student in the Sub-County and we have other 10 students with 400 marks and above in this year’s examinations in our school,” confirmed Mr Justus.
