• Each of the learners was handed a cheque for Sh53,554 and encouraged to continue excelling in high school.
• MP Geoffrey Omuse had before the results were announced promised scholarships for the best girl and boy in the constituency.
The second-best performing pupil in last year's Kenya Certificate of Primary Examination has received full secondary school scholarship.
Flavian Onyango from St Teresa Chakol Girls Primary School is the beneficiary of Teso South National Government Constituency Development Fund.
Flavian scored 439 marks out of 500, one mark behind the top performer in the country Michael Munyiri from Thogoto's Damacrest Academy.
Brian Omondi, the best boy in the sub-county, is also a beneficiary of the four-year scholarship. He sat the KCPE exam at Ojaamong Primary school.
Each received a cheque for Sh53,554 from area MP Geoffrey Omuse at the weekend function attended by among others Teso South Deputy County Commissioner Willy Cheboi.
Flavian, who hopes to become a neurosurgeon, will be joining Alliance Girls High School. Brian is headed to Kapsabet Boys High School.
Both Cheboi and Omuse commended the scholarship beneficiaries for their exam performance.
"Flavian and Brian have made us proud. Before the results were announced, I announced that I would sponsor fully the best boy and girl from Teso South, irrespective of their background," the MP said.
He encouraged the two to work even harder in high school.
