Needy, disabled boy admits self to school in rags with no school fees




A disabled boy staying with his sick grandmother made a bold move to walk to Mabole Boys Secondary School in Butere Constituency, alone and sought an admission from the school administration. 

John Emitati mother abandoned him after being born with a disability, and he has lived with his maternal grandmother in Eshisakha village.

The boy takes care of his 86-year-old grandmother, who got a stroke a few years ago. The 14-year-old sat his Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) examination last year at Eshisakha Primary School, where he garnered 333 marks.

Since he did not have any relatives to cater to his school fees, Emitati walked three kilometers to school last Monday, where he had been selected to join Form One.

He got to school and was taken to the principal’s office by the gatekeeper. The headteacher was shocked to see a boy in old dirty and torn clothes at his door.

Emitati explained his plight to the principal and that he did not want to lose a chance to join a school that emerged fifth in Kakamega County in last year’s Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education exams.

The principal verified the boy’s claims by sending the school messenger to verify the claims which were true. He was allowed to join the school as a day scholar since he didn’t have any shopping or school fees. The principal is seeking for help to assist the boy in settling fully.

VIDEO: Ruto’s bead quickly grows grey even as he denies he is frustrated and under pressure



You may or may not jhave noticed. Deputy President’s beard is going gray and his hair is thinning fast. Not that there is anything wrong or even unusual with that..but keen observers have noticed that the country’s number two has been in deep thought lately, something that seems to take its toll on him.

Interestingly, asked how he lets off pressure, Ruto says he has no pressure.

“I sleep well. I sleep for eight hours a night and you won’t believe it but I don’t feel any pressure,” he told NTV’s Ken Mijungu . during an interview on Thursday at his Karen home.

The DP had earlier dismissed an assertion that he is a frustrated man – politically speaking that is.

Recently in Machakos County, Ruto was pictured looking tired and lost in his thought.

Despite denying that he is under a lot of pressure, political pundits say he is the number one politician who is under a lot of pressure right now.

“He puts on a brave face but mambo kwa ground ni different,’ says John Makanga.

In other news, after promising Kenyans nine stadiums in 2017,  Ruto  has now said the stadiums could not be built because the money set aside for them was directed to other government projects.

The DP said the stadiums promise was not a personal promise but a government’s one.

“You make it look like I was to get money from my pocket to build the stadiums, this was a Jubilee administration pledge,” he said.

Ruto denied that they lied to Kenyans saying, they have delivered on other projects like electricity, housing, roads and rail.

In a clip dated 2017, Ruto who had admitted that they had not delivered on the five stadiums project they pledged in 2013, said plans were underway to construct 11 world class stadiums.

“In six months’ time, the stadium in Wote will be complete as will that one in Chuka. In three months, the stadium in Moyale will be complete. In six months, another stadium in West Pokot will be complete and that will be historic. In a couple of months the stadium in Kiambu will be done. In a couple of months Nyeri stadium will be done.

In Kisumu and Mombasa we have a few challenges, but once sorted, the stadiums will be ready, so instead of five (we promised in 2013), we have gone for 11 just to make it better,” Ruto had said in the viral clip.

In another interview on K24 TV last year, Ruto said the stadium pledge was on course and that the government was now working on 11 stadiums instead of nine.

“We will built 11 stadius insted of nine in two years’ time,’ said the DP.

Ruto also accused the media of only asking him the stadiums which are yet to be completed while ignoring other areas where the government had achieved like roads and rail.

“Why are people just asking about the stadiums as if it is the only thing we promised? Is it because others have been fulfilled? It is unfair,” he said.

The DP also appeared to blame the handshake and Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) for stalled Jubilee projects, saying the government had directed its energy and resources to the unity initiative at the expense of development.

“I think the handshake has also slowed down development because the government has channeled funds and energy towards that direction,’ said the DP.

Ruto, however, vowed to make sure that the promised stadiums are built before 2022 to end the debate once and for all.

The DP said there is ongoing work on the said stadiums with Wote Stadium in Makueni County almost complete.

“I will make sure that we deliver on these stadium promises so that you get another thing to ask in 2022,” he said.

Standard Digital has confirmed that there is very little going on the 11 stadiums promised by Jubilee and it would take a miracle for the government to build and complete them before 2022 as promised by Ruto.
