Kenya's best top candidate in last year’s Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) exam will join Alliance High School, his father told the Nation.
Like his father Peter Otieno, who is an engineer by profession, Omondi had set his goals high and told his parents he would not disappoint them when the results are released.
Lewis Otieno Omondi, who scored 431 marks out of the total 500, schooled at St Peter’s Mumias Boys Primary School. Along with Fwaro Makokha Robinson from Christ the King School, Bungoma, they tied in the number 1 spot in the national exam.
His teachers and parents described Omondi as a prayerful, obedient boy who had a bright future ahead of him.
The head teacher, Ms Ann Onyancha, said Omondi had maintained top performance since he joined the school eight years ago.
On the day Education Cabinet Secretary Ezekiel Machogu announced Form 1 selection results, Omondi's father, Eng Peter Otieno, confirmed to the Nation that he will enroll in the Nairobi-based school.
A total of 1,233,852 candidates sat for the 2022 examinations with all qualifying for admission to form one in line with the government’s 100 percent transition policy.
Some 620, 965 of the candidates, that is, 50.32 percent were boys while 612,887 translating to 49.6 percent were girls, a clear indication that the country has achieved gender parity in primary level.
Other top candidates from St Peter’s Primary School include Okoth Baraka who scored 419 marks and will be headed to Kapsabet Boys, Otieno Lameck Ochieng’ (418 marks) who will also join Kapsabet Boys, Otieno Fidel Castro (418 marks) to Starehe Boys, Mukwenyi Lyam Mathews (417 marks) to Kamusinga Boys and Odhiambo Camillow Antony (406 marks) to Alliance boys.
