A 16-year-old boy from Kapsaos Village in Aldai Constituency in Nandi who sat for his Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) exams has seen his future blurred following abject poverty in his household which has paralysed his plans of becoming a member of type one
Amon Kibiwot did his KCPE examinations at Toretmoi Primary School and scored 393 marks.
“Despite many challenges my parents are going through, I managed to get good marks in KCPE, but I have reported to Secondary School due to lack of school fees, and I pray to God to open ways for me as He did during my schooling and examinations,” Kibiwot mentioned.
Kibiwot has not joined Kabianga Boys High School in Kericho County the place he secured admission since his dad and mom Silla Serem and Sally Serem; peasant farmers in Aldai are wallowing in poverty and can’t afford college charges.
Kibiwot, who aspires to be a pilot says the marks he attained had been on account of the nice working relationship between the schooling stakeholders and saying he struggled to obtain the marks even if his dad and mom had been impoverished.
“This boy has been working hard. He wants to be a pilot. I can’t afford to pay school fees leave alone shopping, I’m a blacksmith who earns peasants with one of my hands partially paralysed,” the kid’s father Silla Serem, mentioned.
Kibiwot’s dad and mom have known as on the federal government and well-wishers to chip in and assist their son realise his dream of turning into a pilot.
