As candidates who excelled in the just announced Kenya Certificate Secondary Education results celebrated their achievement, a family, whose three sons scored a mean grade of A – (minus), were not left behind.

The trio, Nick, Felix and Brian Nyakundi, all students at Kisii High School on Thursday celebrated a score of 79, 76, 75 points respectively in the just announced results.

The boys, who are the sons of Mr Shadrack and Ms Lydia Nyakundi, were ecstatic about their performance.

Interestingly enough, the parents are both accountants.

Mr Shadrack Nyakundi is an accountant working as a civil servant in the national government.

"I expected to score a higher grade, but for now I have to be content with what I've scored," Nicholas, who scored 79 points, told the Daily Nation.

The boys said they were in different streams but two were in the same dormitory.

"We were in the same dorm with Brian. However, we studied together during the holidays, "the younger of them, Felix, said.

Brian on his part recalled the events of the 2015 KCSE when his results were cancelled along with others in Kisii High School.

"I was devastated when our results were cancelled. I decided to go back and resit the exams this year," he said.

"The 2015 results have come as a big relief for me," he said.

Ms Lydia Nyakundi, their mother, said that she worked together with her husband to ensure that her children were well catered for.

"Of course we experienced the normal challenges of raising them since boys tend to be hyper active," she said.

Mrs Nyakundi called on parents to encourage their children to do their best.

The career accountant said that she always took time to go through her children's study program to check on their strengths and weaknesses.
Brian wants to study Telecommunications Engineering and Media while Nick has a passion for journalism. Felix dreams of being an engineer.

The three brothers share an interesting history, with Brian having been born 10 days ahead of his siblings.

The trio however have different interests while sharing some hobbies

Felix is an ardent soccer fan, while Nick and Brian enjoy watching rugby and playing video games.

"We love our parents because they are our main role models," they told the Daily Nation.

They said that they look forward to joining university to pursue their various careers.
