Kenyans Fail to Listen to Governor's Apology After Revealing How Nyaboke Was Left Out of Scholarship

The schools have been opened for the 2021 academic calendar.The teachers will teach for only 10 weeks in this term one as opposed to the usual 14 weeks in term one.In total,the students will be in schools for 39 weeks.

Form one students are set to report to schools next week to begin their four-year long journey in secondary schools.The parents have made the required arrangements to see that their children get to schools admitted to.However,some unlucky students may not even report to their schools due to the hard economic times that the country is going through.

Dinah Nyaboke,a candidate who sat her KCPE exams at Bungoma DEB primary school hit the headlines for two reasons.She passed with flying colours managing 401 marks.The second reason has however taken many by surprise.She opted to repeat class 8 for failing to secure scholarship since she comes from a poor family.She was set to join the prestigious Moi High School Eldoret.

Her state however attracted well wishers such as Lamu Governor,Ken Lusaka,Senator Millicent Omanga,Brookside company and many more.However,Bungoma Governor Wycliffe Wangamati has now apologised but his apology has seen mixed reactions of tribalism related comments.Unfortunately,the girl's name was removed by the county officers despite qualifying.In his apology,the governor says that he was misled by his team.
