Twins’ Wish To Attend Same School Fulfilled
The desire of two twins from Dandora to join the same secondary was finally met after the second twin was admitted at the Jehovah Jire Secondary School.
Lyda Njeri Wanjiru who scored 159 marks was admitted at the school yesterday after her mother pleaded with the school that they let Njeri join her sister Esther Njoki.
The Twins’ mother Serah Wanjiru in an interview expressed her joy at the admission saying that her daughters have never been separated since birth.
“It has been a hustle, I have come to this school several times just requesting that the school admits both the girls at the school. I have been missing the principal,” said Wanjiru.
“They admitted the first girl who scored 221 marks but refused to admit the other girl who scored 159 marks,” she said.
Wanjiru who earns a living from the famous Dandora dumpsite says that the issue of the twins has been causing her sleepless nights.
“I would love to attend the same school with my sister. I used to feel bad when she was not with me,” said Wanjiru.
Her colleagues from the dumpsites helped her raise some money to buy requirements and got the other girl admitted at the school.
Education CS George Magoha has been running a mop up exercise in a bid to achieve 100 percent primary to secondary school transition.
