For those that passed the exams, it was jubilation as their parents prepared them to join the top high schools that they had been admitted to.

However, for one Master Simon Muthama Nzioki who scored a 403 marks out of a possible 500, when time came for reporting back to school, it was tears.

This is because his grandfather, could not afford the amount of fees required for the boy to join secondary school in Machakos.

According to National Police Service Official Social Media Handle, the boy, reported to Machakos Boys High School with nothing.

He however, saw the OCS of Machakos who had brought a child there and decided to approach him and tell him of his plight.

The OCS was touched and he in turn informed the Machakos County Police Commander, Mr. Issa Mohamud, OGW CP who was touched as well and together, they raised 202,000 Kenya shillings for the boy's fees which was deposited in the school's account and he has now reported.
