Police Officers in Machakos Raise Sh200,000 To Help Needy Form One Boy Pay Fees in Machakos School

As a nation, we have found ourselves berating and rebuking the police force a thousand and one times because a man or woman in uniform crossed us at some point in life.

Police officers in Machakos county have raised funds to help a needy Form One school boy.

Simon Muthama Nzioki, who scored 403 marks in the 2021 Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE), had tried doing menial jobs to raise his school fees for secondary school because his grandparents could not afford to pay the money.

Reports indicate that Simon had reported to Machakos school accompanied by his grandfather but without the necessary requirements.

At the school, Simon met Machakos Police Station OCS Mohammed Ali also a parent at the school, who noticed the boy's plight.

The concerned OCS reported the matter to police in his station who gently talked to the boy. The law enforcers then made it their mission to see Simon's dream to join Machakos School come to life.

Police Commander Issa Muhammud coordinated a fundraiser which raised Sh200,000 towards the payment of Simon's school fees for the entire period of four years.

They joined hands to raise funds and also reached out to other well-wishers and fortunately, their money was able to buy the boy his school uniform and other personal effects.

The elated learner promised to work hard in school adding he aspires to be an Engineer when he grows up.
