After Losing Hope, Millicent Omanga Decides To Aid Secondary Fee For Bungoma Girl Till Form 4

As Form One admission is set to begin next week, a pupil from Bungoma who scored 401 marks in the 2020 KCPE examinations is bound to repeat Class Eight after being knocked out of the county scholarship program under unclear circumstances.

The fate of Diana Nyokabi, who was among the top KCPE performers at the Bungoma D.E.B Primary School in last year’s exams and was called to join Moi Girls High School, Eldoret, now lies in limbo.

The girl had all her hope pegged on the county scholarship program but her fate was sealed at the eleventh hour when she was told she was not among those considered for the aid.

Her mother, Priscila Nyanchera, a hawker in Bungoma town, said she was saddened that her daughter was no longer on the list of beneficiaries even after she was picked by county officials in May.

Diana Nyokabi said she was overjoyed when she was chosen for the scholarship, only to discover later her name was missing.  Nyokabi has appealed to anyone who can assist her with enrolling in Form One to continue with her studies.

Bungoma County is not any different. Some girls say they wanted to get sanitary towels but because their mothers could not afford them,…they resorted to sleeping with an older man who in turn became their providers. But sadly, they were left with more than they bargained for
