“West Pokot residents rustle books for knowledge and skill and I urge all residents to continue with the same spirit of going to school and of ensuring they have education for the knowledge and skills acquired in school which will help meet the challenges of the 21st century, as education will enrich their minds and expand their horizons of thought and reason,” MP said.
Pchumba, 14 years old, said he was excited about his good KCPE marks and hopes to join the Alliance High School which he said is the secondary school of his dream adding he wants to be an Information Technology Engineer.
“I thank all of my teachers, my friends, my parents, and the Kitengela International School family for the role they have played in my education journey and for much life-advice they have instilled in me, I promise to reciprocate their sacrifice through hard work and will put resilience in my studies and assures of being disciplined and hope to succeed in my studies later,” said the top performer while expressing his wishes in life.
