Former Kakamega Senator Boni Khalwale is definitely one of the most blessed parents in the country, thanks to how good his children perform in school.

This was evident after he once again revealed how his daughter brilliantly performed in the just-released Kenya Certificate Primary Certificate (KCPE) exam results.

In a social media post, Boni revealed that his daughter, Melissa Khamwenyi Khalwale emerged as one of the top pupils in the national exam after she scored 402 marks out of 500.

While revealing the results, the politician also thanked the primary schools his daughter went to for contributing to the child's education.

"My family & I, in 1000 special ways thank God, the teaching & non-teaching staff of Malinya Pr. School & Kakamega Hill Junior School for the 402! MELISSA KHAMWENYI KHALWALE INDEX: 37615027005 ENG 86A KIS 83A KSL = = MAT 83A SCI 66B SSR 84A TOTAL 402 KNEC HELPLINE 0800724900," Boni wrote in the post.

It is, however, not the first time Khalwale is letting the public know how his children have performed in the national exams.

In the past five national exams - both KCPE and KCSE - the Kakamega senator aspirant has had at least a child sitting in each of those exams, something that has elicited mixed reactions among Kenyans.

After revealing his daughter's KCPE results, some netizens came out to congratulate him and his daughter for the great academic performance while others have come out to question the number of children he has that has made him register as a national exam candidate almost every year.

Below are some of the reactions:
