By Abubaker Mukose ANDREW Nyumba, 12, the Jinja district best candidate in last year's Primary Leaving Examination (PLE), has maintained the blithe since the news broke out. With aggregate 4, orphaned Nyumba upholds, he never expected the results. "It was a shock to learn that I scored highest in the whole of Jinja district. English was very hard and I still wonder how I made it," he said. The boy doesn't welcome any query regarding his late father and hardly remembers him. Relatives say Nyumba's daddy died when he was one-year-old. His mother Teopista Kabakama is a nurse in Gadaffi garrison. Nyumba lives with his Uncle, Dr. Ogutu Bwahwayo, the Director of National Agricultural Research Organisation (NARO). He hopes to emulate his uncle by becoming a doctor. His Aunt, Diana Mushabe maintains that Nyumba's results were a total surprise to the family. "We new the boy couldn't get an aggregate of four because he appeared playful. He spent most of his evenings on video games, but he never missed classes," Mushabe says. Nyumba, the only candidate who scored an aggregate of four, is hopeful that he will study on the Jinja district scholarship bursary. He plans to go to Kings College Budo where he put his first choice. Nyumba claims to have been a bright boy since nursery school. He recalls to have emerged number one to join P1 from Riverside Nursery school. The shy Nyumba with three other schoolmates steered Victoria Nile School to the top in Jinja district. Ends
