Every parent would be happy to see his or her children getting good education mostly for the betterment of their future and their parent's. Fees problem especially for secondary school going students is becoming a big problem in Kenya as the poverty level continues to rock the Nation. It is so sad when students are sent home for fees yet their parents don't even have anything to feed on.
As reported by KTN News, a schoolgirl who had been sent home over Sh29,177 fees arrears today ventured into city streets to beg for assistance from well-wishers.
Clad in her school uniform and displaying a bold banner, 15-year-old Mellan Njeri Njuguna of Kihumbu-ini Secondary School in Murang'a County said she was sent home on September 10 but her mother was unable to pay her fees.
