Two siblings from Sirare village, Kabuchai constituency in Bungoma County are appealing to well-wishers to help after they failed to join Kisii University on September 20, 2021 for lack of fees.
Datayo Juma and Martha Juma, both products of Nalondo CBM Secondary School for the physically handicapped scored a mean grade of B+. The two were the top students at the school.
They were selected to join Kisii University to pursue a bachelor’s degree in Education Science (Chemistry/ Biology). The two have promised to work hard if given a chance.
Their mother, Jane Namalwa told journalists that she has done everything she could including selling what she owns to pay fees. “My eldest son is at Eldoret University. I appeal to well-wishers to help me take my children to school,” she said.
Nalondo CBM Principal Mr. Kwanusu Walter Wawire said that the two students are disciplined and hardworking despite the hardships at home.
“These students were needy right from primary school and although they owe the school, Sh38, 600 in fees arrears we gave them their result slips to enable them to join University,” Kwanusu stated.
Kwanusu appealed to the government to help needy students from special schools who perform well so that they can join a university of their choice and fulfill their dreams.
