Boy that was gifted first plane ride after passing mock KCSE Exams scores A

Last week, hundreds of thousands of candidates in Kenya received their results from the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) exam. Education CS Ezekiel Machogu noted that 1,146 candidates scored an A plain.

Among the successful students was Juma Alex Oyugi from Kisii Boys High School, who scored straight As in the final exams. Oyugi’s success was due in part to a motivational promise made by his principal, Mr.

Fred Mogaka, who had bought him a plane ticket to Nairobi for a mock exam in which Oyugi attained an A plain of 81 points. Oyugi’s school, Kisii Boys High School, performed well in the exam, with 22 students scoring As, an increase from the previous year.

However, allegations of cheating have emerged, with a senator questioning why more than 82% of students with As are from Kisii county. These allegations have sparked mixed reactions from Kenyans on social media.
