A KCSE candidate in Tetu, Nyeri county gave birth to a bouncing baby boy a few hours to the start of the examinations.

Stella Njeri,18, from Kihatha Secondary School sat for her Mathematics paper at Outspan Hospital in Nyeri town where she is recuperating after delivering on Monday morning.

She delivered normally and the baby weighed 2.7 kilograms.

Njeri said she is optimistic that she will excel despite not being in school like her 41 colleagues.

She said she has revised well at home and hopes to pass with flying colours.

The hospital’s nursing officer in charge Jane Wamucii said Njeri will be discharged in the next few days.

“The patient and the baby are in stable condition. We have provided examination room for her so that she continues with her exams,”

We wish Njeri and her bouncing baby boy all the best.
