Parents of twin boys who sat for last year’s Kenya Certificate of Primary Education are at a cross road after the boys have denied being separated when joining secondary school from next week.
Despite the boys scoring variable marks, they want to be admitted to the same school because of their nature.
The brothers, who were learning at Ekerubo Gietai ELCK Primary Boarding, said they cannot let the various schools they were admitted to separate them.
One Jared Gisore scored 421 marks and was among Nyamira County ‘s topscorers while his twin brother Joshua attained 398 marks.
Jared (421) was selected to Alliance Boys, while Joshua was placed at Litein Boys in Bomet County.
Addresing journalists at their Kebirigo home, Joshua pleaded with Cabinet secretary for Education – George Magoha, to intervene and have them join Alliance all together.
“It’s not going to be possible to be separated when joining secondary schools after we have spent the better part of our lives living and doing everything together. I want to plead with CS (Prof) Maghoha to intervene and kindly allow us to go together to Alliance,” Joshua said.
Form one students report to their respective schools from 13 January. The Government maintains all pupils who sat for their 2019 KCPE must transit to Secondary.
