It was tears of joy for top Busia Kenya Certificate of Primary Education candidate Edith Muthoni Ouma when she received her results soon after they were released by Education Cabinet Secretary Amina Mohammed.
Ouma scored 438 marks at St Catherine Nangina Girls Primary School in Samia Sub County to emerge joint top scorer with Marcel Okuku of Lukonyi Boys Primary.
“I became tensed when I received results for Index three candidate who scored 430 marks. When mine eventually came I didn’t believe it so I started crying,” she revealed on Tuesday.
Edith whose first choice school is Alliance Girls High said her burning ambition is to become a neurosurgeon. She attributed her success to support from teachers, parents and fellow students.
Her mother, a teacher by profession said had work paid off dividends for her daughter who had vowed to break the record of her elder sister who topped the County with 432 marks in 2013 KCPE.
