Police Officers Raise Ksh. 200,000 For Student Who Reported To School With An Empty Box

Police officers in Meru County have raised Ksh. 200,000 for a bright needy boy who reported to school with an empty box.

Antony Musembi who scored 395 marks in the just concluded KCPE had been called to Meru School.

The police officers led by Meru County Police Commander Nyaga Muchungu raised Ksh. 88,000 from amongst themselves then collected another 112,000 from well-wishers.

“The County Police Commander Meru Mr. Nyaga on behalf of Commissioners of Police from the National Police Service, presented their contributions of Ksh 88,000 to the Principal Meru School. The amount is intended to cater for the school fees of Anthony Musembi,” said the Kenya National Police Service in a statement.


“Just like the Machakos team, the CPC Meru learnt of the plight of Anthony Musembi and rallied his team to raise funds,” read the statement.

Musembi had reported to school with an empty box only to get the surprise from the police officers.

The money was handed to the Meru School Principal.

This is not the first time police officers are raising money for bright and needy students.

On Friday, police officers from Machakos County also raised 202,000 for a student who had reported for admission at the Machakos School without school fees and personal effects.

Simon Muthama Nzioki had scored 403 marks in KCPE and had been accompanied to school by his grandfather and mother without any school fees.

“While standing pensively at the admission desk not knowing what to do, he caught the attention of the OCS Machakos who had gone to admit a form one student. After a brief conversation, the OCS established that the boy had been accompanied by his aged Grandfather who wasn’t in a position to raise money for his school feels and other school requirements. His unemployed mother, a single parent, could not support him either,” said the police.

The County Police Commander Machakos, Mr Issa Mohamud, OGW CP was touched by the plight of the boy and mobilized his NPS team and friends and they were able to raise Ksh 202,000 for his school fees.
