Kenya's No 1 GhettoRadio

Boy Who Scored 378 Marks In KCPE Finally Joins Form One


A form one student whose school fee appeal was highlighted by Ghetto Radio has successfully joined Kisumu Boy’s High School.

Humphrey Omiti was admitted to the school today after Boma Mabati paid the entire year’s school fee and shopping needs.

Humphrey who sat for his KCPE at Oyugis Primary school scored 378 marks but his ambition to join Kisumu Boys High school almost never happened due to lack of school fees.

Omiti’s family was planning to take the boy to a Vocational center with the belief that the government cater for his vocational training fee through HELB.

Jemima Akoth, Omiti’s mother could not hide her joy and gratitude to Boma Mabati and Ghetto Radio making her son’s dream come true.

“Let me take this opportunity to thank Boma Mabati factory Limited and Ghetto Radio for making sure that my son Omiti got his admission here at Kisumu Boys High school. He passed his exams well and was the top scorer in their school. I didn’t have money to cater for his fee since I am just a casual worker earning only Ksh. 200 per day,” said Jemimah.

“To those who may want to know what I got from Boma Mabati factory, it was a whole year’s school fee and shopping. They sent me the money for shopping as well. Thank you and may God bless you all,” Jemima added.

Omiti also thanked his sponsors and promised not to let them down.

On the other hand Sheila Aoko who helped Omiti’s mother in raising awareness on Omiti’s school fee plight, appealed to the national government to increase fund allocation which are being disbursed support needy students, and education sector in the country.

“I’m appealing to the National government to increase funds allocations to schools which support needy students. The government has put a lot of focus on the entertainment sector by providing them with enough funds unlike the education sector which is now on its deathbed,” says Sheila.

She has also advised parents to try and take their children to school despite the challenges they are facing.

“Parents please take your children to school no matter what challenge you might be facing. You never know your child’s luck. Omiti’s mother was almost losing hope but God intervebed” Sheila added.

She has appealed to the general public to help them in appreciating Boma Mabati by purchasing their products.
