The release of the 2020 KCSE results came with massive celebrations countrywide as top students, their relatives and schools broke into songs and dances.
It is always an extremely thrilling moment for few candidates who emerge in the list of top 10 best performers countrywide.
In the 2020 KCSE results, Education CS George Magoha had a special tribute to few candidates, from average secondary schools, after they defied odds and registered quality grades.
On the top of the list of top 10 candidates, who registered admirable results, is Cheruiyot Bett Dennis from Kimargis Secondary School.
Having scored 190 marks in KCPE, the future might have looked bleak to many who knew him.
