For Gikumene Primary school, the result showcased the institution as an able giant ready to wrestle with the high and the might through exemplary performance by some of its students.
Eddy Mutembei, a young, brilliant, simple village boy scooped the first position with 401 marks. Its in no doubt that such incredible feats are not typical of many public schools.
Eddy heights of excellence leads him to the iconic Meru School, one of the best national schools in the country.
When the award-winning Kenya Airlift Program learnt of his amazing story of triumph, it stepped out to do what it does best.
Eddy will receive a full scholarship from the Kenya Airlift Program for his four-year study period at Meru school.

As Nelson Mandela put it, ‘education is the most powerful weapon we can use to change the world.’ Having got the arsenals necessary for the battle, Eddy’s path is clear in making a better future for himself and society in general.
