“I thank God that my life will be diffeent going forward,” Koech added.

Cynthia, who will be in third fourm in January,  at Friends School Lukhokho girls could not hold back tears while she too crediting God for the big win.

“My dad could not have achieved this on his own, I know it is God working through him, we are so proud of him,” the composed youngster who wants to be a lawyer remarked.
