He said though his father, who reportedly sells plastic bottles for a living, was experiencing serious financial headache, selling the family's only farm was not a good idea.

Elsewhere, a father abandoned his home after he failed to raise school fees for his son.

Isaac Oloserian Pelo from Oiti village, Naivasha, scooped 406 marks out of the possible 500 in the 2017 Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) and secured a slot at Moi Kabarak High School.

Unfortunately, Pelo's peasant father could not afford to take him to the prestigious national school.
