Do you remember Nyakemincha?? The school in kisii which was ridiculed years ago ?? Well this news will shock you. The name Nyakemincha is synonymous with failure in examinations in kisii language.This, however, is not the case with St Peters Nyakemincha Day Secondary School which overcame the odds to emerge among the top three in the Kenya Certificate Of Secondary Education examinations in Nyamira County. The secondary school’s mean score last year was 8.9914 while this year was 8.00. Only Nyambaria boys and Sironga girls beat them in the county.
This is in stark contrast to its namesake Nyakemincha Primary School, which is struggling to find its feet after it came last in national examinations four years ago.
The school beat hitherto known academic giants in Gusii land notably, Nyabururu girls, Kereri girls ,Cardinal Otunga Mosocho Boys,Kisii school
