According to the Daily Nation, MaryAnne, whose rightful position is second countrywide scored graded ranging between 87 and 81 points.

She had been listed as a student at Kenya High School, the Nairobi School, and St Hannah’s Boys.

Her actual score was A (87.087).

Some confused Kenyans blamed the error on alleged marks fixation by the Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC).

Reached for clarification, the Council, however, stated that the issue was a mistake on the publication’s part.

MaryAnne was a student at Kenya High School, an institution that emerged the best countrywide after producing 87 straight As.
