KCSE: Year of the boys

 

Tue, Mar 02, 2010

 

Not a single girl listed among the nation’s top 10. Girls took only a quarter, or 27 positions, in the top 100, leaving boys to walk away with the lion’s share of 73.

 

Gathuku David Ndungu is the top student in the 2009 Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) examination.
Ndungu who was a student at Mang’u High School scored a mean grade of 87.26.
Releasing the results Tuesday education minister Prof Sam Ongeri reported an improved performance. However Prof Ongeri decried poor performance by girls noting that no female student made it to the top ten positions nationally.
The top girl Grace Wambui of Moi Girls High School Eldoret was placed 11th. There were only 27 girls among the top 100 students nationally. Some provinces notably Central, Nyanza and North Eastern registered no girls among the top 10 students.
The results can be accessed on the ministry of education website http://www.examscouncil.or.ke/ or http://www.knec.ac.ke/. Prof Ongeri sid the candidates can also access the results by sending SMS messages bearing their index numbers to 2228.

Some 335,600 students sat the exam last year with a total of 81,048 candidates scoring at least an aggregate of C+ which is the minimum requirement for university entrance.
Prof Ongeri said 1,171 candidates in 69 schools have been penalized for cheating and called on the examination council to be more vigilant and strengthen measures to curb cheating
The Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC) admitted that exam cheating remains a major challenge. KNEC Chief Executive Paul Wasanga said it was the responsibility of every Kenyan to help the council curb the vice..
Girls performed slightly better than boys in the languages while boys outshone them in Mathematics and the sciences.
Prof Ongeri expressed concern over the low enrollment of girls and called on guardians and parents to discard out dated traditions such as early marriages and FGM which he blamed for the poor performance among the girls.
However, there was a significant drop of performance in sciences which Prof Ongeri attributed to poor distribution of science teachers in schools across the country.

Following the results, learning at Mang’u High School in Thika came to a standstill as teachers, students and parents celebrated the news that the school had produced the best over all KCSE candidate.
Led by BOG Chairman George Muhoho and Principal Henry Raichena the school fraternity celebrated the achievement of Gathuku David Ndung’u who emerged the best candidate nationally after scoring 87.26 marks.
Raichena said they had expected the student to perform well as he had been consistent, disciplined and always followed teachers’ instructions.
The last time Mang’u High School produced the top student was in 2000. In 2001 Isaac Nyangolo was third nationally while Brian Mwiti emerged No. 2 in 2007.
In the last results, Mang’u High School did not produce even a single student in the top ten positions nationally.

Kibwezi-Prostitution only option out of hunger

 

Alex Ndirangu
29 June 2009
Nairobi — IT IS EARLY EVENING AND THE sun’s rays paint a golden atmosphere across the bare plains of Hombo village in Kibwezi district.
For Eliza Wayua, it is time to bid her two children and her frail mother-in-law goodbye. She will be out in the night on an errand that none of them understands.
But they do know that when she comes back the following morning, she will bring food to last them a day. She is their only minder.
Mounting her bike, she waves at them and navigates the narrow, maze-like footpaths of this semi arid land. She will cycle 10km to Makindu, a small, dusty town on the Nairobi-Mombasa highway.
She arrives at Makindu just before dusk. A few trucks are zooming past while many others are parked on both sides of the road.
Business today promises to be good.
Wayua leaves her bike with a watchman and vanishes into the dusk. The watchman will receive a stipend the next morning for keeping vigil on the bike.
The Nairobi-Mombasa highway has shocking figures on HIV/Aids prevalence rates. World Vision HIV/Aids advocacy adviser Simon Duffy says one in every three adults living in markets along the highway is HIV positive.
This has been attributed to truck drivers and conductors who have been cited as a high risk group. It is in these towns and markets that they meet commercial sex workers — another high risk group.
In Kibwezi district alone, there are about 20 support groups comprising people living with Aids.
Daniel Keleli, who heads the Kibwezi Network of People Living with Aids, says the current famine and food shortage in parts of Ukambani will lead to many people being infected as they try to escape starvation.
“Prostitution seems to be the only option out of hunger. The relief food offered by the government is too little and irregular,” says Mr Keleli.
About 75 per cent of people in this region live below the poverty line. The land is semi arid and unproductive, with very little economic activity.
Charcoal burning has for a long time been the only means of upkeep. But with the current drought, trees have diminished, leaving residents with no reliable source of livelihood.
“We are seeing girls as young as 16 engaging in commercial sex with truck drivers,” Mr Keleli says, adding that there has been an influx of commercial sex workers in Makindu and Kibwezi towns where he operates businesses.
REPORTS INDICATE THAT women and girls affected by famine in the interior rural areas are moving to towns on the highway for commercial sex to fend for themselves and their families.
As a sign of the great concern that Aids poses to residents, there are several non-governmental organisations on the ground fighting to curb the spread of the virus.
With the help of Willy Mutunga, a VCT counsellor at Hope Worldwide Kenya, we meet Ann Soila, a commercial sex worker who heads a support group for sex workers that urges them to bargain for safe sex.
“Women and girls joining this trade are so desperate that they don’t press for safe sex, thus risking infection.”
Soila adds that the rapid increase in sex workers has resulted in stiff competition among them. Soila is a bit skimpy on how much the sex workers earn. But after much prodding, she opens up.
“They normally charge about Ksh500 ($6) and above for ‘fry’ (without a condom) and as low as Ksh200 ($2.5) for ‘boil’ (sex with a condom).” She adds that the charges vary with the kind of client and the level of bargain.
Nelson Mbithi, the Kibwezi district Aids and STD coordinator, says there has been an increase in prevalence rates in towns on the highway.” Since the drought worsened this year, the prevalence rate has risen from 5.2 per cent to 5.7 per cent.”
Mbithi says the current drought and looming shortage of condoms has aggravated the matter.
“New infections may rise due to women and girls turning to the highway for sustenance,” he says, adding that they have put 4,029 people on anti-retro virals recently.
The highway connects the three East African countries — Uganda via Busia and Tanzania through Namanga.
There is hope, however, for the desperate women. The rains hitting parts of the country could last long enough to sustain crops in the region.
This will ensure that Wayua and other women have food for their children and keep off risky behaviour.

Kenyan tied to South Sudanese intelligence shot dead in revenge attack
Tuesday, April 14, 2009
A series of killings in the Southern Sudan have been linked to two intelligence bodies. Southern Sudan intelligence has killed a Kenyan and a Tanzanian both believed to be intelligence agents. The Kenyan was attached to the Southern Sudanesse intelligence services. James Ndungu Wanjiru and a Tanzanian, Wera Tarimo both were attached to the Southern Sudan intelligence. They were murdered in a mystery cover up by NSIS field agents. According to sources familiar with the intelligence between the two sides, Southern Sudan relies on Kenyan intelligence through sharing and advisory through an informal settlement.
The two intelligence officials were shot on Thursday last week by members of Thon Wuong Manyuon’s family. This family tagged the two as members of National Intelligence and Security Service (NISS). The NISS has been implicated in Manyuon’s killing which happened earlier on the same day. The NSIS has moved into counter the issue.

Male students top 2008 KCSE examination

 

Tue, Mar 03, 2009
Maugo Nyauma Mark, the top student nationally in KCSE exam, is carried high by students at Alliance High School on Tuesday.
Maugo Nyaoma Mark is the top student in the 2008 Kenya Certificate Secondary Examination -KCSE- with an aggregate of 87.267 points. Nyaosi Bugei Omote is second with 87.262. Patel Kush Nikhil is the third best student.
Overall the performance of girls compared to boys is very poor. Out of the ten top candidates overall there is only one female candidate Mukhongo Nanyama Velma at number four with an aggregate of 87.17.
The rest in order of performance are Ogaro Denver Mosigisi, Bosire Eric Omingo, Taabu Okinyi Robert, Bernard Larpei Tabarua, Kimani Morris Wabacha and Ondigo John Asango .
The top 10 female students are Mukhongo Nanyama Velma, Manju Rose Sebastian, Wambua Ndunge, Obayo Antonina Zebby, Muiru Ruth Wanjiru, Irungu Wanjiru, King’oo Faith Kalekye, Cherop Christine, Owira Quinn Patricia and Obasi Kwamboka Maritha.
The top positions in Nyanza and North Eastern provinces were dominated by male candidates with not a single girl appearing in the top 10.
In Nyanza Province only nine girls made it to the top 100 students while in North Eastern Province only 11 girls made the top 100 list.
However, in Eastern Province girls are topping taking the first three positions. Girls also took 51 positions out of the top 100 in the province.
The poor performance by girls was replicated in most other provinces with two girls making it to the top 10 in Coast Proovince, 1 in Central Province,1 in Nairobi Province, 3 in Rift Valley Province and 4 in Western Province.
This year the ministry of education decided not to rank performance in terms of schools as has been the norm. This the ministry said was meant to remove unfair competition.
In Subject rankings, girls outperformed boys in English and CRE with girls taking six positions out of the top 10 in English and nine positions out of the first thirteen in CRE.
However in the sciences, girls performed dismally with not a single girl appearing in the top 10 students in Physics. In Mathematics only one girl made it in the list of top 14 performers while in chemistry, five girls made it in the list of 12 best students.
Girls performed relatively better in Kiswahili with five girls appearing in the list of top 11 and a similar number appearing in the list of top 11 performers in Business Studies.

Girls shine in KCPE Results

 

 

The Kenya Certificate of Primary Examination results have shown the government almost achieving the much sought after, gender parity.
Education Minister Prof Sam Ongeri said the government is now working at achieving 100 per cent transition in enrollment, from primary school to secondary school through expansion of secondary schools infrastructure including the construction of new classrooms and introduction of informal learning centers.
The Minister said Central Province, Nairobi and Eastern provinces achieved a 50 to 50 per cent gender parity, which he noted is encouraging in ensuring that as many children as possible acquire an education.
Ongeri however directed provincial directors of education in Coast province, Nyanza and North Eastern provinces to work towards bridging the ever increasing gap between boys and girls enrollment in schools.
Out of the over 695,000 candidates who sat the KCPE examination, 350,000 candidates attained over 250 marks, making them eligible to join secondary school.
However a major challenge now facing the government and parents is the limited spaces available in secondary schools to absorb all those who qualified.
With just some 70 per cent able join secondary school, some 104,000 candidates may not see the doors of a secondary school classroom. The government is also facing major challenges due to malpractices and irregularities that saw results of over 65 centers cancelled.
Some 6000 candidates did not seat their examinations this year, and Prof Ongeri explained they may have been, those that were hired to seat the exams on behalf of weak candidates and opted not to seat when they realized how strict the measures were to curb examination cheating.
He warned private schools against poaching bright students from public schools so as to hoodwink the public.
The Minister regretted that the post election violence had a heavy toll on the education sector in the country.

Kathiani MP Petti Wavinya marries a Nigerian
Thursday, September 4 2008

They came, they saw, they conquered. Not Julius Caesar this time round, but the Nigerians. And when they claimed one of our own, they did it in style, complete with the military commands of Caesar’s days.

Led by Lagos State MP Tule Adejare, the Nigerians were in Kenya to “take possession” of Kathiani MP Petti Wavinya Ndeti-Oduwale at a ceremony attended by the two countries’ who’s who.
Dr Adejare’s brother Henry Oduwale came to seal the missing link in his marriage to Wavinya, Kenya’s assistant minister for Youth and Sports.
The couple met in the 1990s while pursuing university degrees in the UK. And yes, there was church wedding in the UK, but that did not rule out the Kamba traditional wedding in Mua Hill Village two weeks ago.
Guests included the young and restless and those, like wine, well-matured. Ms Winnie Wangui, she of the Armenian brothers fame, was there, composed and appearing at peace with herself; and so was Kiambaa MP Stanley Githunguri.
The outspoken Kilonzos, Charles (Yatta, MP) and Kiema (Mutito) too, were present, as were Machakos Town’s Dr Victor Munyaka and Mr Charles Nyamai (Kitui West).
For Mr Oduwale, a certified public accountant in the UK where he lives, getting the hands of the bride from the assembled Kamba elders was an uphill task. Dr Adejare and the best men from the UK went down on their backs “pleading” to take away the bride.
The rest stood up after spending some good minutes on the floor, but left behind the bridegroom, who refused to stand up until he was given an assurance that indeed, the bride was his for keeps.
But as relatives from both sides stood opposite each other before the bride was officially handed over to the Nigerians, one Nigerian, Mrs Bukky Balagun, a lawyer and the bridegrooms eldest sister, brought an “objection”.
Mrs Balagun is a Queens Counsel — the equivalent of State Counsel in Kenya. She “defected” to the bride’s side and complicated matters when she introduced an amendment requiring that all the men from the bridegroom’s side undergo military-style drills under her command to determine their ability to take care of a bride. Her objection was readily upheld. The Nigerians responded to commands well: “Left turn!”, “Right turn!”; “About-turn!”, “Quick march!” Visitors were left in stitches.
Henry’s mother Iyabode Oduwale died in 2004, while his father Adeneke Oduwale died in the 1960s. Both were from Nigerian royal families.
This explains why Henry’s sisters and brothers wore bracelets that defined their royal status. The seven siblings are all professionals in various fields.
Then came the cutting of the cake, only that roasted goat meat took the place of the cake. The “newly weds” chopped it into pieces then fed each other before going round to serve their guests.
So, what took them so long to wed?
In 2003, they had planned to have it when she was expecting her third child and Henry came visiting. But Immigration officials said her husband had to leave, and claimed he was under police investigations.
“It was all politics, I was showing political ambitions already, so some people were unhappy, and involved the department staff to embarrass me,” Ms Ndeti-Oduwale recalled.
Disappointed by the turn of events, Henry flew back to the UK and went straight to Scotland Yard, where he reported his ordeal at the hands of Kenyan authorities. “In the UK, if your character is in doubt by outsiders, one is at liberty to pay Scotland Yard to investigate, and that’s exactly what happened,” she added.
After months of investigations, the Scotland Yard wrote a letter clearing her husband of any illegal deals. The couple later received an apology letter from the CID and the National Security Intelligence Service for the embarrassment.
