Musungu received a score of 16 out of a possible 20.
He admitted that he had to work hard, practice, and be determined in order to win the competition..
I’m overjoyed to receive the two scholarships from Strathmore University and Grace International Educational and Counseling Group to study overseas in 2023. The competition was fierce, so I didn’t expect to win, but I trusted in myself and prevailed,” he added.

He continued by saying that the competition would be expanded to include more schools around the nation.
