Saidi Idriss Lutta sat his KCPE examination at Emining Primary School in 2019 and managed 401 marks out of 500. He was then offered a place at Maranda High School.
Unfortunately, his dreams of joining the school of his choice were dimmed as the family, according to his former school head Mr. Silas Kipngok, was not in a position to cater for his shopping and fees ahead of his admission.
Saidi is a son of a single mother who is a vegetable vendor. His sickly mother Ms Lilian Ayabei says she has no hope of getting any money as she has other children in secondary school, college and university.
