No one wants their dreams to be crushed after working so hard to surpass all the possible barriers to their achievement in the race taken.
It was a sad ordeal when a top KCPE candidate expressed his disappointment after failing to get admission to his desired High school despite qualifying.
However the plight of the Form One student from Isiolo County who was denied admission at the prestigious Starehe Boys center has finally reached the Ministry of Education.
This prompted the Ministry to intervene to have Jack Mutuma Mbabu admitted to Mang’u High school.
Education CS Amina Mohamed ordered that Mutuma be admitted to the new school immediately to ensure that he catches up with those who had already been admitted.
“That issue has been resolved and the student who was going to Starehe has been posted to Mang’u,” CS Amina confirmed.
Mutuma failed to secure admission at Starehe even after scoring an impressive 417 marks in the 2018 KCPE, angering many Kenyans.
The school refused to admit him despite securing a letter of admissions from the Ministry of Education and paying Kshs 70,000 worth of school fees to the school account.
