A day after Citizen Digital highlighted his case, Yusuf Aker, has joined the Kapsabet Boys High School, courtesy of well-wishers.
His school fees will be settled by his new school until he leaves Form Four, our News Desk understands.
On Friday morning, the eager boy reported to the school in a pair of tattered shorts and a sweater top. He was in the company of his guardian.
Hours later, he was looking sharp in the school’s uniform; a pair of grey pants, a white shirt, red and black tie and a maroon sweater.
He was more than ready to start off his four-year journey at the school of his dreams.
He scored 380 marks in the 2019 Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) examinations and but was forced to repeat Class 8 after failing to raise the fee required to join secondary school.
Aker who hails from Mokong’wo village in Tiaty, Baringo Count was set to join the Kapsabet Boys High School- a national school- but failed to get a sponsor to settle his fees.
Tangulbei Primary School headteacher James Merinyang expressed shock at seeing him in class last week despite the fact that he had topped the entire school in the national exam last year.
The Digital News Desk caught up with Aker sitting for a Kiswahili opening term exam paper at the very school where he sat his KCPE last year.
The lad had been living with his 82-year-old grandmother who was unable to raise his fees casting his dream of becoming a doctor into untold uncertainity.
