Offers Flood In For KCPE Candidate Who Sought To Repeat Class Eight

A top 2020 KCPE candidate who had wanted to repeat Class Eight out of a lack of school fees to facilitate her transition to Form One has received offers from scores of leaders and Kenyans across the country.

Diana Nyokabi, who scored 401 marks to emerge among Bungoma D.E.B Primary School's top candidates, had stunned many by going back to her school to request for a readmission.

After her story was highlighted on Wednesday, July 28, multiple offers started streaming in, from county leaders to musicians among the many Kenyans that had expressed interest.

Lamu Governor Fahim Twaha, nominated senator Millicent Omanga, musician Akothee and Kanduyi MP Wafula Wamunyinyi had stepped in.

"I want to support this girl through her secondary education. Anyone kindly DM her contacts as soon as possible," Omanga stated. 

"The case of Diana Nyokabi has been brought to my attention but have since confirmed that the Governor has taken up the case and the girl will be enrolled in high school," Wamunyinyi announced. 

Musician Esther Akoth, alias Akothee had confessed that her hands were full but urged her followers to support Nyokabi.

"This girl is bright and we can't just allow her waste another year... My hands are full but this we can pull," she commented. 

Lamu Governor Twaha already footed the bill consisting of school fees for the whole of Term One. It was sent to Bungoma D.E.B headteacher Tobias Khisa, who had highlighted Nyokabi's plight through the media. 

Khisa had expressed his shock on Nyokabi's abrupt decision to restart the class at the learning institution.

Her exemplary performance saw her picked for a scholarship program funded by Bungoma County.

In bizarre circumstances however, she was ejected from the list, leaving the family with a huge task of raising Ksh53,554 for her to join high school. 

She was left with no choice but to repeat the class. 

"I want to be a lawyer in future and I'm appealing to well wishers to make this dream a reality by helping me join form one," Nyokabi stated.
