The Amount of Money Fred Matiang'i Has Given The Top 2020 KCSE Candidate Janet After Her Story

Janet Isaboke, the 2020 KCSE candidate who scored grade A of 82 points, has received overwhelmingly support after her plight was aired on Citizen on Saturday, 11. 

She got an admission letter to pursue a degree course in Medicine and Surgery, but due to lack fees, she was forced to stay at home. 

Her mother, Annah Kwamboka, while being interviewed by journalists, noted that she was unable to raise the university fees due to the life challenges. She went on to plead with Kenyans of goodwill to come to her daughter's aid so that she can fulfil her dreams.

More well-wishers including politicians have come to her rescue after the story went viral.

Taking to her social media account, senator Janet Ong'era has revealed the amount of money she has received from Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang'i, Professor Sam Ongeri, and Governor James Ongwae. 

Earlier, Sport Cabinet Secretary Amina Mohammed had asked the girl to visit her office so that she can help her. 

On the other hand, Ford Kenya leader Moses Wetangula's brother Westland MP Tim Wanyonyi had pledged to pay her first year university fees while Dagoretti North MP Simba Arati noted he will ensure that she proceeds with her studies. 

She was not only among the top students in her county but also in the country in the 2020 national examination. 

Janet Isaboke's story symbolizes a number young Kenyans who passed their exams with flying colors but are unable to join institutions to pursue their courses due to the tumultuous challenges most of them face.
