Identical twins Jason and Jesse Kamwaro have become the pride of their family and a beacon of inspiration for their peers.
The duo, students at Pioneer School, have carved their names in the annals of education by securing top grades in the recently released Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) results.
The twins, both achieving grade A, stood out among a cohort of 263 candidates. Jason and Jesse, who scored 84 and 82 points respectively, share not only a genetic makeup but also a common aspiration: to pursue computer science at Strathmore University.
What makes their achievement even more remarkable is the consistency they have demonstrated throughout their academic journey.
This is not the first time the twins have mirrored each other’s success. In the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) exams, Jason and Jesse scored 407 and 409 marks, setting the stage for their high school endeavors at the same institution.
Despite being in different classes, the twins chose identical subjects and maintained a strikingly similar academic trajectory.
In an exclusive interview, Jesse shared, “I scored 82 points, and my brother got 84 points. We both want to pursue the same course at Strathmore University.” Jason echoed his brother’s sentiments, expressing their shared ambition to become software engineers in renowned tech companies such as Netflix and Google.
Their parents, Esther Wangechi and the wider family, are overjoyed by the twins’ accomplishments.
Esther Wangechi remarked that it wasn’t a surprise for them to post similar grades, emphasizing their consistency and discipline over the years. She expressed her gratitude, saying, “We pray that they continue that way into their future.”
Pioneer School’s deputy principal, Daniel Mwaura, lauded the achievements of the twins and their peers, highlighting the school’s success in producing over 200 candidates who attained university entry grades.
As part of a motivation program facilitated by the school’s director, Peter Munga, awards of up to Sh100,000 were presented to each of the four students who scored A.
