The story of Diana Nyokabi broke out yesterday in the daily locals that she had been forced to repeat class8 even after excelling in her KCPE exams by scoring 401 marks because of poverty and tribalism.
The bright girl had secured a scholarship from Bungoma County but the cartels in the county government stuff off her name tore place her with a non -deserving case because from their preferred tribe.
Diana Nyokabi’s dream to join Moi Girls High School, Eldoret was quashed after her mother Priscilla Nyanchera decided to take her back to repeat Class 8 despite scoring 401 marks.
She was enrolled back at her former school Bungoma D.E.B Primary School. Even her teachers were heartbroken by the move.
Bungoma County Governor Wycliffe Wangamati has a very noble scholarship program that supports bright but needy learners from his county.
Diana was one of the lucky ones that had landed an opportunity this year, only for her name to be kicked out at the last minute. This is according to a story that was aired on Citizen TV.
Kenyans were heartbroken to see the young girl narrating her painful story on TV and this has prompted a Kenyan of goodwill to offer to pay all her school feet that will see her through High school.
Nominated senator from Nairobi County Millicent Omanga has offered to help alleviate the pain of the young girl and bring back a smile in their family.
Taking to her social media accounts, Millicent Omanga was touched by her story and would like to meet the family and pay all the school fees.
Her actions will shame a county government that is run by conmen and cartels that almost shuttered a dream of a Kenyan girl whose crime was that she is not a Luhya.
