"I feared for my life but thinking of my future life and career, I had no option but to take a walk,"Masinde narrated.He was in his former primary school uniform and wanted to make sure he could secure the slot no matter what came his way.

The principal to St.Josesp school Godfrey Owuor said he was shocked to have been visited by a young boy in tattered uniform in his office at such an early hour.However,pleased by the boy's determination to learn,he has urged well wishers to assist the boy in every way possible inorder to make his dreams come true.
