The headteacher and parents of Moi DEB Primary School in Bungoma town broke into tears after receiving his school’s KCPE results.
The school boss lamented that there was no way the first candidate could score 365 marks while his own son received 334 marks.
The school head even went further to seek the help of sub-county directors in trying to understand how that came to be.
“I was also a parent and my child got 334 marks and I have not even shown him the results because he expected to go to Maranda. I have so many questions to ask.
“No parents! This is not possible. Our children have been studying and we have been working hard. You cannot even compare us to other schools,” he said with a face full of tears.
