31 December 2015, 12:04
Vihiga - Mululu primary school from Sabatia Constituency continued its dominance over other schools in Vihiga County by producing the top student for the second year in a row, with over 17 others scoring over 400 marks in the 2015 KCPE exams.
Margaret Amwai from Mululu emerged the top student in the County having scored 441 marks out of a possible 500. She was followed by Michael Maloya who scored 426, Emmanuel Lihanda 423, Diana Kadesa 422, and Daniel Olima 421.
Amwai noted that her dedication towards her dream of becoming a Pediatrician propelled her to study even harder for better results in the exam.
"I want to thank my parents, teachers and fellow pupils at Mululu primary school who gave me an ample time to study, provided resources and helped me in one way or the other in becoming the best," said Amwai.
She added, "Although I was expecting to perform well, I didn't know I would eventually emerge a top student in the county."
The 14-year-old said she was hoping to join Alliance Girls High school to pursue her dreams further.

Amwai's parents, Mr and Mrs Marions Omoke said that she is a girl who knows what she wants in life and worked towards it.
Mudasa Academy on the other hand produced the second best student in the County, Renny Isoe with 428 marks.
Others from Mudasa who performed well included Favour Jerusa 425, Amos Jaoko 423, Gerald Kisia 421 and Eugene Makotsi 420.
Mululu Headteacher, Eboso Kihima said that Amwai, the top student, had been a dedicated pupil throughout her stay in the school and thus beat the other 180 candidates in the school.
"The good performance of our pupils is anchored on discipline that is a necessity at the school. Many challenges abound in producing good results but we have always capitalised on the challenges to become the best," said Kihima.
Mudasa Academy principal, Mrs Velma Mudanyi noted that her school had shown consistency in producing good results due to the dedication and great input from both parents, teachers and pupils.
"Good results have been consistent in the school because of teachers who are willing to go the extra mile, pupils who sacrifice their all, and parents who are cooperative," said Mudanyi.
By Wednesday, Mudasa academy had a mean score of 399.68 with the 28 pupils out of 50 that sat for their KCPE getting over 400 marks, while in Mululu 151 pupils got above 350 marks.
Mr Kihima said the good performance by the public school indicated how the schools have potential to perform well, if the government invests in them well.
He said abolishing ranking in schools had not affected the school's good performance and encouraged other teachers to focus on helping pupils achieve their dreams by providing quality education instead of concentrating on drilling them for better results.
