Former Nairobi Governor Dr. Evans Kidero has opened up on his high school struggles even as his former school, Agoro Sare High School shines.
Agoro Sare High school has produced the second-best student in the country according to the KCSE results released by Prof George Magoha. Allan Wasonga from Agoro Sare High School scooped A Plain of 87.173 points.
This has really melted the heart of Dr. Kidero who has used the opportunity to share his high school story.
Kidero has stated on his Facebook page that he used to walk from his grandmother’s home in Kamser Lieta, Karachuonyo to the school in Oyugis Town, which is now in the Kasipul Constituency.
Kidero has further stated that he wrote his O levels examinations at Agoro Sare in 1975. That year the school posted the best results as he was also the best student in Nyanza province and among the top ten nationally.
“Agoro Sare High School is where we learned how to labour for success. Our school motto was “amaet labora” and we really worked hard to achieve our dreams.
I used to walk from my grandmother’s home in Kamser Lieta, Karachuonyo to the school in Oyugis town, the now Kasipul Constituency. I wrote my O Levels examination at Agoro Sare in 1975. The school posted good results and I was the best student in Nyanza province and among the top ten nationally,” Kidero wrote.
Kidero later joined Mang’u high school where his star continued to shine as he emerged the best, becoming the second-best student in the country. He joined the University of Nairobi to pursue medicine and still topped the class which graduated in 1983.
“This accorded me the opportunity to proceed to Mang’u High School for my advanced levels, where I also topped and I was position 2 nationally. I, later on, joined the University of Nairobi school of medicine where I also graduated top of my class in 1983,” Kidero stated.
Kidero has further given credits to Agoro Sare High School for instilling in him the spirit of resilience and discipline which catapulted him to success.
“All these success was as a result of the hard work and discipline instilled in us by the great teachers and staff at Agoro Sare High School,” Kidero added.
He has since congratulated the school for the good performance it has produced in the KCSE results.
“It really melts my heart to see my alma mater have such a good results despite the disruption of the school calendar by the Covid-19 pandemic.
Congratulations to all the Form 4 students who made it to get their results. It is now time to move on from the moment and focus on the next challenge.”
