“We have laid the requisite infrastructure to ensure all students exiting secondary school proceed with their education. The country requires a healthy mix of young professionals to drive the economy,” said Ruto.

He urged the candidates to tackle the exams with courage, assuring them that none will be denied a chance to excel in their careers of choice.

“We know this is the beginning of your dreams. We have laid the foundation for you to pursue your dreams, whether as academicians, sports, music and many others,” Ruto said.
