KERICHO, KENYA: The three former Moi Tea secondary school students, Joyce Chepngeno Bore, Terer Winnie Chemutai and Lillian Ogeka Lewinsky, who all scored A of 81 points in the 2016 Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) have been hired to work at the local Equity bank branch.

The school Principal Mrs Mary Koske said the Equity branch manager had visited the institution and took the details of scholars who besides being hired to work at the bank, would receive sponsorship for their university education.

"We are very excited that our former students have been immediately hired by a leading banking institution where they would be earning a decent living for themselves, above all, the bank would take over the burden of paying their university education from their parents," said Mrs Koske.

Meanwhile, Former National Social Security Fund (NSSF) managing trustee Mr Richard Kipkoech Langat dismissed Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) leader Raila Odinga's calls for to President Uhuru Kenyatta to form a commission of inquiry to audit the 2016 KCSE examination results.

"Education Cabinet Secretary (CS) Fred Matiangi eliminated the rampant cheating that had come to be associated with the national examination. What the stakeholders in the education sector must focus now on how this year's Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) candidates will perform better than the previous class," said Mr Langat.
