The sad story of the Bungoma girl who scored 401 marks in the 2020 KCPE examination has caught the attention of many leaders across the country, including flamboyant former Governor, William Kabogo.
However, due to the lack of school fees, the teen was preparing to repeat Class 8 before well-wishers came for her rescue.
It has been reported that Lamu Governor Fahim Twaha paid her fees on Thursday, putting an end to the family’s heartbreak and providing the bright young pupil with the much-needed wind beneath her sails.
Apart from Lamu Governor's help, other Kenyans of goodwill were also looking for the girl, among them Nominated Senator Millicent Omanga, singer Akothee who was to start a fun drive from her fans, among others.
William Kabogo has on his side, suggested that the girl joins Alliance Girls in Kiambu as he offered to help the girl as per his capacity.
He was reacting to a post made by Dr Bosire Wairiumu, a medical doctor, who had also offered to help the girl.
After Kabogo was told that other well-wishers had sorted out the girl, he promised that he is still ready to help the girl by saying "count me in".
