Everlyn Ibarasa a house wife states that it has been hard for her to cater for her son's fees considering the state of poverty facing the family
The Mother of three states that she has had to endure depression after seeing her son attending classes on and off because she is unable to settle school fees.
Leonard Malande (16) is a form three student at Kabula Boys high school in Bumula constituency and has faced a lot of financial challenges leading to the accumulation of the fee arrears.
"My Son is likely to drop out of school because of the accumulated school fees, he has been wasting a lot of time at home and therefore am appealing to the County Government of Bungoma, well wishers and sponsors to come to my rescue," she said.
Mrs Ibarasa was employed as a casual labourer at Kibabii University but was laid off in 2019 once the contractor lost the tender.
Her husband John Malande a driver was involved in a road accident and was rendered immobile and unable to cater for his family.
"My husband is just sick in the house, I can't cater for his medication, at least when he was Ok, he could cater for his family but we are now suffering," she revealed.
Ibarasa pointed out that her son is very bright in class and if he gets financial assistance he will attain a good grade that will take him to the public university.
"I imagine before he joined Form three, he had stayed at home for over one month, when he got the chance to sit the examination, he scored a mean grade of C+, if given opportunity to stay at school he is likely to concentrate and scored a good grade," she stated.
She added that her eldest daughter has been enrolled into a Tourism college but she can't afford money for rent.
She expects her son to perform well because he is a university material and wishes to be an engineer in future.
