Lonah Agape, top student in 2021 Kenya Certificate of Primary Education in Lugari Sub-County may not join form one if well-wishers do not intervene and sponsor her to St. Bridgit Girls Kiminini.

Agape who schooled at Free Methodist Umoja Primary School in Mautuma Location, Lugari Sub-County scored 413 marks said she wants to be university don at the peak of her education.

Her sister Ann Veronica who also wrote her KCPE exam in Free Methodist Umoja Primary School Mautuma and scored 378 shares the same fees problem with the parents saying they depended on irregular village casual to fend for their families.

Veronica has been called to join Bishop Njenga Girls Secondary School and has a dream of becoming a medical doctor upon completion of her studies.

Their Parents Aggrey Akoyo and Pamela Akoyo say they tried to apply for scholarships in different organizations including the government for their daughters but none has succeeded.

“As parents we are worried today others are reporting to form one but our daughters’ dreams could be shattered if someone does not offer help immediately,” devastated father Aggrey Akoyo told West Media  when visited his home.

Akoyo said his daughters have been admitted to the best big schools because of their stellar performance and that his financial situation cannot allow him to pay for them.

 “I ask well-wishers to intervene so that our daughters join their dream schools,” said their mother Pamela Akoyo.

The girls who hail from Kimbo village in Mautuma area, Lugari Sub County said their future risk being shuttered if they fail to get well-wishers to support them achieve their education dream.

“I felt happy after passing my exams with 413 marks and I want to join my dream school  St. Bridget Kiminini  Girls  but now the happiness is slowly fading away as my parents have told me their efforts to get school fees for me have failed,” said Agape.
