GOOD NEWS to KCPE Candidates featured on Citizen Tv as Babu Owino Promises to do this

Following a Citizen TV program, Embakasi East Member of Parliament Babu Owino provided complete scholarships to two individuals who sat the 2021 Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE).

Babu said during a press conference that he would be paying the school expenses for twins Brian Nyamache and Mercy Bunareli, who had yet to enroll in secondary school due to a lack of funds.

Brian and Mercy were from the lawmaker's constituency, and he was unaware of their condition until it was brought to his attention. He went on to say that their single mother was unable to pay their tuition.

"I decided to hunt for them in Tassia after seeing their story on TV the other night. I want Kenyans and residents of Embakasi East to know that I will teach these children "said the politician

"I'm going to grant them a scholarship so that they can learn from kindergarten to fourth grade for free. I can promise them that education is the way to helping themselves and their family "he concluded.

Brian and Mercy received calling letters from Moi High School in Mbiruri, Embu, and St. Alberts Girls' High School in Ulanda, Migori county, respectively, after scoring 398 and 361 points.

Grace Mukabana, their mother, stated that she is unable to pay her children's school fees since she lost her work. In addition, the woman is burdened by the high cost of living, since her lowly occupations do not pay enough to cover utilities and school fees.

"I lost my work in 2021 and have been surviving by doing laundry chores. It's not enough, and I'm having trouble paying my rent and relying on well-wishers to help me out "Mukabana explained.

She went on to say that her children were unable to obtain the government's Elimu Scholarship since they took the national exam at a private school, Glory Learning Centre in Tassia.

Mukabana revealed that their attendance at the school was made possible by a well-wisher who paid their tuition after their father died. Other scholarship applications were likewise unsuccessful.

"Everyone continues asking why we haven't reported to school yet, and I assure them that we will," Mercy explained. "I also have a friend who is in a similar circumstance to me; we get together occasionally to encourage each other," Brian added.

Brian stated that he intends to seek a degree in surgery in the future, whilst his sister wants to be a lawyer. The two bright youngsters now have the opportunity to pursue their aspirations thanks to the scholarship.

CS Education George Magoha has been on a nationwide search for pupils who have not yet reported to school in accordance with the policy of a 100 percent changeover. He verified that two candidates from a Nakuru slum reported to school in the county on May 16.
