Boma Mabati Pays A Whole Year’s School Fee For Needy Boy Who Scored 378 Marks
Boma Mabati Limited has paid the entire year’s school fee for Eddy Humphrey Omiti a KCPE candidate who almost missed his secondary school slot at Kisumu Boys due to lack of school fees.
Omiti who emerged top of his class at Oyugis Primary School with 378 marks had opted to join a village vocational training center after his parents failed to raise his school fee.
Boma Mabati through their director Mary Wangari wrote a Ksh. 54,000 cheque to Kisumu Boys High School which will cover Omiti’s entire year’s school fee after the story was highlighted by Ghetto Radio.
The company will also cater for Omiti’s shopping needs.
Wangari who held a meeting with Ghetto Radio’s Managing Director MajiMaji Julius Owino stated that Boma Mabati will see to it that Omiti clears his four year study at Kisumu Boys High School.
“As Boma Mabati, we will come through for Omiti and we have paid his one year school fees for Kisumu Boys because the four years in high school builds a person’s character… so that’s why we have decided to write a cheque to Kisumu Boys and we will also cater for his shopping,” said Wangari.
Boma Mabati is a fully owned Kenyan Company with its manufacturing plant along Mombasa Road.
On Wednesday in an interview with Ghetto Radio, Omiti’s family said they had opted to have him join the village vocational institution since the government provides HELB for students in vocational institutions.
Omiti’s mother Jemima Aoko, a casual worker within Oyugis said her meager earnings can barely feed her entire family hence her inability to pay her son’s secondary school fee.
“My daily pay is usually between sh.100 to sh.200 and with a family of four the amount is not enough,” she said.
“The boy performed very well but due to my condition I had no option but to resolve of taking him to Kisumu Boys,” she added.
The amount of money needed for Omiti to be admitted in Kisumu Boys was Ksh. 53,000.
