May 2015 , David Onyango Odhiambo received news that his scholarship application was successful and in 4 months time he was scheduled to travel and join Bathe University in England .
By then he had just completed Biochemistry Degree at University Of Nairobi.
The news was a breath of fresh air and a glimpse of hope hanged in the air as he was the 1st in his family to leave Kenyan soil for education abroad.
Little did he know that after the 1 Year course in a well renowned University, he would come back home and join a group of unemployed graduates back Home.
Around Nov 2015, David traveled to England and completed his Masters in Molecular Microbiology and jetted back in the country Nov 2016 with nothing but joy having revamped his Cv and was ready to be absorbed in the Kenyan Job Market.
4 years down the line David Onyango has been sending applications to various organizations and at one point worked as an intern.
He has settled in selling tea in one of the local eatery ‘kibanda’ to earn a living and surprisingly he partnered with another Bachelor of Commerce graduate from Maseno University who is on the same predicament.
When I visited his premise yesterday , there were more troubles Landlady had locked him out of the hotel where he runs his business due to rent arrears.
He’s now moving up and down in search of another hustle to make ends meet to feed his wife and daughter back in the village.
