A student from Majengo in Embu who went to negotiate school fees using a cock has finally joined Kangaru School.

Lawrence Murimi’s mother Pauline Mukami was elated after some of the leaders including Embu Senator Njeru Ndwiga and top education officials intervened and promised to assist her son who scored 313 marks.

Kameme FM radio presenter Muthee Kiengei has also pledged to pay two-year fees for the boy who dreams of becoming a lawyer.

The County Director of Education James Kairu is said to have also taken up the matter.

The boy with the mother went to the school Wednesday carrying a cock to negotiate fees as he sought an admission to Form One at the school.

He had been given the bird by a relative after initiation into adulthood.

The boy is said to have woken up and told the mother that he would not continue staying at home while other students went on with their studies.

Dressed in his former primary school uniform, he took the cock and asked the mother to accompany her to school.

He had planned to inform the county commissioner but did not find him at the office and proceeded to the school.

On reaching at the principal’s office, they were turned away for among others lacking personal items.

They immediately left but were later called by the school management after learning that the issue had leaked to media.

Meanwhile, Ruguru Ngandori MCA aspirant Juma Karimoni has helped three students who had dropped out of school due to lack of fees resume studies.
