My name is Damaris Mbusiro, I scored 398 in KCPE but can’t join Pangani Girls because of fees

By MN Reporter

My name is Mbusiro Damaris Nyamohanga, from Nyabasi East in Kuria.

I sat for my KCPE exam last year at Mohogo Primary School and scored 398 marks.

My dream of joining Pangani Girls’ secondary school in Nairobi was realised when I received their admission letter to the school.

I was over the moon when I received the letter to join form one.

“I have always admired to join Pangani girls and Kenya high. When I received the letter to join Pangani, I was very happy because it was my step to being an engineer,” Mbusiro told Migori News.

But my happiness was short lived as my parents are unable to raise funds to take me to the school. They said they can’t raise the fee. My future now looks bleak.

My father, Yusuf Nyamohanga, is a guard in Kegonga market earning Sh2,000 a month while the mother, Penina Weisiko, sells vegetables.

Owing to my good performance, I was supported by my primary school administration to complete my primary education.

“My meager salary could not see her through school. The school supported her because she is bright. Now she has passed her exam and I am left wondering what to do with her,” Nyamohanga told Migori News.

My family together with my teachers are appealing to well wishers to step in and assist me in my education.
