Sabatia MP gives motorbikes to top KCSE performers

By Eric Lungai | Jun 2nd 2014 | 1 min read

Kakamega, Kenya: Sabatia MP Alfred Agoi has awarded motorbikes to all students who got grade A in last year’s Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) in the constituency.

A total of 25 motorbikes worth Sh2.6 million were given out to the students, 24 of whom were from Chavakali High School, with the remaining one going to a student of Moi Girls High School Vokoli.

The MP also gave Nelson Mokogi who was the best candidate in Western and sixth nationally, a motorbike.

Mokogi does not hail from the constituency.

Addressing the parents, students and education officials at the award giving ceremony in Chavakali High on Saturday, Agoi said he had decided to award the top performers so that others could work hard.

“Students need to have real motivation so that they can work hard in school. If we promise them good things, yet fail to fulfil our end of the bargain when they do well, they will not trust us as parents,” said Agoi.

He said the motorbikes were bought with his own savings and that he was prepared to spend more on such initiatives in future.

Hamisi MP Charles Gimose and his Vihiga counterpart Yusuf Chanzu, and Teachers Service Commission Director in the county Francis Ngware attended the function.
