Lugari Constituency’s leading candidate in the KCPE 2022 has expressed his future aspirations after garnering 415 marks in the results that were announced yesterday by Education CS Ezekiel Machogu.
Moses Nyikuri, 14, said he wants to join Alliance Boys High School as he chases his dream to pursue medicine at Harvard University in the United States in future.
“I want to be a doctor and be able to find a cure of some chronic ailments such as cancer. I’d wish to join Alliance Boys or Kapsabet Boys to set my dream rolling,” he told the Western Kenya Times.
Moses attributed his success to hard work and discipline, and said he would have scored higher if he was in a boarding school.
“The only challenge I used to face was lack of enough time to balance between school and work at home. I’d have done better if I was in a boarding school, and even led the nation like the two topped with 431 marks in boarding schools in Kakamega and Bungoma counties,” he said.
Moses’ mother, Elizabeth Munialo, a teacher at the neighboring Koromaiti Primary School, said she has been raising him and his three siblings single-handedly after her husband neglected them.
She said his other son sat the same exam in the same school and scored 326 marks.
“My first born is doing education at Mount Kenya University as the second born pursues medical engineering at the Technical University of Mombasa. I therefore have a burden of paying school fees for all of them. I will be glad if any help is forthcoming,” she said.
