It is every student’s dream to join university or college after completing his or her Form Four. This was not the case with Milly Nafula from Trans Nzoia County who scored an A- in her KCSE at Manor High School, Kitale, in 2007.
Milly Nafula has been trending throughout the week because she didn’t secure a chance 14 years since she finished high school, but now has countless reasons to smile after being offered a fully paid scholarship to study Medicine and Surgery courtesy of Mt Kenya University.
Professor Simon Gicharu, MKU founder and Chairman, confirmed that Nafula has been offered the scholarship to actualise her dream of becoming a medical doctor. This was during the university’s 20th graduation ceremony.
“I was touched when I saw her story on TV. I asked myself, how can we, as Kenyans, allow her to stay at home for so many years just because she was not admitted to a university?” Professor Gicharu said.
He further stated that the Board of Directors has agreed to support Milly Nafula by funding her education and providing other financial assistance.
