I am not myself, I cannot explain how I feel. I have been in the church to thank God for my grandsonâ€™s success. Those were the words of Ida Ssebwato, grandmother to Jonathan Kamoga, one of the top PLE candidates at Mother Majeri Primary School, Kirinya.
â€œHis mother died when he was two months, and I became the mother since then. Oh God! Youâ€™re great,â€ said Ssebwato expressing joy over the stunning performance of her grandson, who scored aggregate 4 in last yearâ€™s PLE.
Overwhelmed, Kamoga (held by his grandmother) thanked The New Vision for initiating the PLE pullouts, which he said helped him improve on social studies, where he was very weak.
â€œI was among the pupils who performed poorly in social studies, but your questions helped me so much. I appeal to other pupils to ask their parents to buy the newspaper because most of the questions which where in the pullouts appeared in the exams,â€ said the soft-spoken 12-year old.
Kamogaâ€™s favourite subject is English and he wants to become a doctor.
Born to Nsole Matovu, the Nakasongola District Service Commissioner, Kamoga said he would join Kibuli SS for his Oâ€™Level.
Out of 71 candidates that sat at Mother Majeri, 66 pupils got first grade and five obtained grade two.
