A brief dramatic scene was presented to mourners at the funeral of Nyamaiya Ward Member of County Assembly (MCA) Elijah Osiemo when a man hurried to the podium where Education Cabinet Secretary Ezekiel Machogu was speaking to guests and broke down in tears, pleading for an appointment to the Teachers Service Commission (TSC)
As a token of sympathy, CS Machogu was in the process of giving a member of the grieving family a TSC letter. The education CS had additionally said that the residents might bring their requests to him if they were likewise in need.
This must have caused the man, one of the hundreds of attendees at the burial, to storm in and push past the security personnel in an attempt to get a look at Machogu.
Locals were ecstatic with the man’s audacious action and cheered him on, finally drawing the Education Cabinet Secretary’s notice.
The nameless individual reportedly received letters from the CS later on, suggesting that his employment quest may have come to an end.
According to Machogu, the young man deserved the appointment since he had advocated for himself.
Q“Hasn’t the young man fought for himself?, isn’t that a good fight?” The CS threw the question to a charged crowd.
