Police Officers Contribute School Fees For Stranded Form 1 Girls

Two form one students have a reason to smile after police officers contributed money towards their admission into secondary schools.

In a statement shared by the National Police Service (NPS) on Thursday, May 12, the hearts of the officers, who hold the rank of Commissioners of Police, were pricked after learning that the parents of the girls were unable to raise admission fees.

 

In the first instance, Victoria Ndung’e Musau, a girl from Makueni County who had secured a slot at Muthale Girls High School in Mbooni Constituency was unable to report.

The senior officers then mobilised their colleagues who contributed cash to take care of admission and other requirements including textbooks.

“When the senior officers realised that the girl’s parents could not raise the required fees, they mobilized their colleagues and raised funds that saw the girl admitted to her favourite school, Muthale Girls High School in Mbooni Constituency.

 

“They were also able to cater to additional admission requirements for the lucky girl including books and personal effects,” read the statement in part.

The drive was spearheaded by the Deputy Regional Commander North Eastern, Mr. Joseph Musyoka Nthenge who promised to help with the girl’s admission.

In a separate case, the Kisii County Police Commander (CPC), Francis Kooli, also led a group of friends to contribute money towards Lilian Ikal Losike’s school fees. The girl was a former pupil at Korinyang Primary School.

Lilian had scored an impressive 366 marks but could not raise school fees. With the help of the County Commander in Kisii and other well-wishers, shelater joined St. Bridgit Girls, Kiminini.

“To the team of Commissioners of Police and the many other police officers whose beautiful stories haven’t been told, we appreciate you for the gestures and initiatives that bring honour to the National Police Service,” appreciated the NPS.

Form one admission kicked off on Tuesday, May 4 but was marred with chaos as many Principals argued that available dormitories were fewer than the admitted students.

 

Some Schools were forced to convert the newly-build Curriculum-Based Competency classes into sleeping areas.
