Kirinyaga county once again leads the way in KCPE exams

31 December 2013, 16:00 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Kirinyaga once again leads the way in the 2013 KCPE results in terms of ranking by county.

Having also led the way in 2012, the county beat Marakwet to second place in the log, with the two retaining their positions as was the case in 2012.

Makueni, Nandi, Uasin Gishu, Busia and Nairobi followed with Baringo, Kisumu, Tharaka Nithi and West Pokot making up the top ten.

Not surprisingly, Tana River, Mandera and Garissa were at the bottom, having been hard hit by clashes and insecurity in the last year.

Lamu, Wajir, Taita Taveta, Kwale and Kilifi, areas synonymous with girl child abuse suffered in terms of results and were also in the bottom ten.

Education Cabinet Secretary Jacob Kaimenyi said that the results in the various counties reflected the trend in terms of stability in the country.

" You can see that the areas that have least been affected by cases of insecurity and matters to deal with children's welfare have done very well, he said.

The overall results also showed that girls did better than boys on average, a trend which Kaimenyi said was due to the increased number of girls attending school.
