0

As form ones prepare to join their dream schools to begin their first term, a family in Migori County is in dilemma over the fate of their son who scored 423 marks in last year’s Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE).
Master Brighton Otieno, a former pupil at Migori Primary School was among top ten best in Migori County.
His hopes of joining Mangu High School remains bleak as the family grapples with the agony of raising money to offset his school fees.
Addressing LTV at his former school where he had gone to pick his admission letter from Mang’u High School, the boy regretted that he may not achieve his dreams.
The 13 year old who dreams of pursuing a course in Chemical engineering said he felt doomed after missing out on various scholarship programmes despite applying.
Otieno failed to secure three scholarships from Equity’s Wings to fly, Migori governors scholarship and KCB-MPESA foundation.
Her mother Irene Kasande said the family relied on casual labours to raise the family and paying the school fees for their first born son was proving difficult.
She said her husband does menial jobs and she also do laundry services in Migori town to raise my kids.
Migori Primary School Head teacher Moses Maranda described Brighton as ‘a bright and hardworking pupil who deserved all form of assistance’ in his academic pursuits.
He is appealing to any well-wisher to help the bright needy boy join Mang’u High School in the next few days.
