Babu Owino Rescues Top KCPE Candidate from Suicide Attempt

Babu Owino on Saturday morning came to the rescue of top KCSE candidate after reports emerged that she intended to commit suicide.

Embakasi East MP Babu Owino

The Embakasi East legislator was touched by the agony slum dweller and promised to pay her school fees and ensure that she achieves her dream.

He recalled how it took the effort of a community whom through fundraising helped her illicit brewing mum to educate him.

The top performer received an admission letter to join Asumbi Girls but realised that her parents could not afford the Ksh.53,544 school fee required for her form one studies.

Citizen TV reported that the devastated girl, after losing hope of joining her dream school, wrote a suicide note.

In her note, the hopeless girl told her parents that she knew that death was not the only way to solve the problem but thought it was the best option for her.

Babu himself was a slum dweller in the slum that the 13-year old hails.

However, when his political and leadership dreams came true, he rose from the grass to grace.

The girl joins other financially disabled students that the legislator has listened to their cry.

In October 2019, he came to the rescue of a university student who dropped out of school to be a watchman at Mombasa due to lack of fees.

The Multimedia University dropout was promised full scholarship for his studies.
