He attributed that to discipline among both students and invigilators during the course of the national examination in 2013.
“Lamu has shown a good example to the rest of the counties for not engaging in exam malpractices,” said Mr Ndegwa.
Mr Macharia Gaguthe, the Mpeketoni principal, told Nation.co.ke that time management, discipline and hard work enabled them to produce the top two candidates in the county.
“Surely, my school has recorded a remarkable improvement in KCSE over the previous years.
In 2012 we had 3 B+ but fortunately, we now have 2 A- and several B pluses.
This has been contributed to the discipline among my students and I urge the other candidates to follow the same footsteps,” said Mr Macharia.
Local leaders also praised the students for not engaging in cheating.
Mr Jomo Anthony Maina, the Bahari Ward Representative said the discipline exhibited by the students had propelled the county into the national limelight.
