Milly Nafula is a proud girl after Mount Kenya University (MKU) fulfilled its promise of paying her full scholarship and buying her land.
Nafula has now been awarded a KSh 3.5 million scholarship to study Bachelor of Medicine and Surgery at MKU, which includes her living expenses.
She is now expected to report to class on September 5, 2022 to pursue her desired career after staying home for 14 years since she completed her secondary school studies and lacked fees to join campus despite scoring a clean A- (minus) of 74 points.
The orphan and a mother of two has also been bought a quarter of an acre in Cheranganyi Constituency to begin her new life and take care of her siblings.
The university has also constructed a house for her and has already given her land documents in her name.
Apart from that, Nafula was given a cheque worth KSh 186,000 to help her with the siblings and another KSh 15,000 shillings from other well-wishers to facilitate her opening a bank account that she didn’t have so that she could deposit the cheque.
The speechless Nafula, moved to tears, said she was brought up with a single parent and the life of her mother brewing changa’a to support her secondary education was not easy.
