A mother who has been catering for the needs of her son by selling vegetables at Panpaper Market in Lugari Constituency is joyful after he scored 395 marks at Macho Muslim Primary School.
The ambitious boy, Greyson Matibo, appreciated his mother’s and teachers’ efforts, which helped him score highly.
“Getting 395 from a village day school is difficult. I would like to thank my mom and my teachers for the unpayable support,” he said.
Greyson, who emerged as the number one candidate out of 134, wants to join Kamusinga Boys High School in Bungoma County.
He is appealing to well-wishers across the country and beyond to help him join his dream school.
Her mother, Leah Masibo, said that it will be hard for her to make her son join a national school because of her economic background.
The head of Macho Muslim Primary School, Mr. Protus Sisa, who spoke to WKT on the phone, had the same request for well-wishers.
Meanwhile, Brandy Ariri from the neighboring Mukuyu Primary School received 394 marks. He thanked teachers and parents for their support and assured them that she would make society proud by becoming a nurse.
