- A 50-year-old man who sat for his KCPE in 2016 is appealing to well wishers to help him join form one next year
- The father of nine enrolled in school earlier in the year after dropping out of school in 1980
A 50-year-old father of nine is afraid that he might miss a slot to join form one next year. He says that he cannot afford the fees.
Martin Mang'oli from Namanje Village in Bumula constituency sat for his KCPE examination a month ago and managed to score an impressive 260 marks out of 500.
He dropped out of school in his day following nasty family disputes and poverty and was the only surviving child of his mother who was a second wife.
So far, he has been doing odd jobs while training choirs all over Nyanza and Western regions- he is a talented musician.
Despite having no previous school certificate, Mang'oli has taught nursery schools all over Kenya for the last 20 years.
