Some Kenyan sports personalities have gone to become famous in the country and beyond. Some have succeeded and become millionaires even without pursuing further studies proving that although education is important, it is not determining factor to success.
Michael Olunga is a professional footballer who plays for Qatar club Al- Duhail and the Kenyan national team as a forward. He was a student at Upper Hill School Nairobi where he scored a mean grade of A- in his Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education and joined the Technical University of Kenya for a degree in geospatial engineering. Michael completed his degree while playing for Gor Mahia Fc. He was the first Kenyan to score a hat trick in La Liga when he was loaned to Girona.
He played for Tusker FC back when it was called Tusker breweries for seven years and left in 1994. Omondi managed to juggle between school and football and is currently a medical practitioner in Ireland.
Fred Arocho is a former professional footballer who played the game for about a year. He played for the national youth team back in the day and got a chance to rub shoulders with some of the best African footballers. After playing football for over a decade, he enrolled at Kenya Polytechnic and graduated with a diploma in business administration.
He is considered one of the most educated Kenyan footballers in recent times. His football career was cut short by a terrible knee injury but thank God for his education credentials. He got a job in football administration. Gicheru is a bachelor of law holder who wishes to pursue a master's degree in the future.
It's my gratitude when you read this article.
