Tears flow for bright poor boy as he finally joins Starehe Boys

It was tears of joy for a bright poor boy who excelled in the last year’s KCPE following his eventual admission to Starehe Boys Centre.

Fabulous Mtola, who hails from an extremely needy family in Lirhanda village, Shinyalu Constituency, scored 406 marks at St. Stefano Malaika Primary School.

The boy was, however, stranded at home due to lack of school fees until a member of the community alerted area MP Fred Ikana, who immediately mobilized resources to have him join his dream school.

Ikana put a smile on the face of Fabulous after personally taking him to Starehe Boys Centre in Nairobi.

“Through education, Fabulous will bring light to his family, Lirhanda village, entire Shinyalu and the whole nation,” the MP said.

“Many thanks to all the well-wishers, including my friend Khatib Musa who helped in this journey. Special mention for mwalimu Wilberforce Lugano who highlighted the plight of Fabulous,” he added.

Ikana pledged to foot the bills and his other requirements until he is through with his secondary education.

“Fabulous is just joining the list of hundreds of other needy children that I am educating through my personal initiatives, besides NG-CDF,” he added.

The legislator announced that the NG-CDF will pay 60 per cent of fees for all Form 4s in day schools in the constituency.

He said another 257 bright but needy students had already been admitted in various schools on full scholarships, expressing optimism that education bursaries will be available soon, in time to support all other needy students whose parents and guardians are currently filling and handing in forms.
