“Yesterday, we received a report about a student from Mutwangombe who had scored an impressive 356 marks in KCPE but had not reported to Form One due to financial constraints. Honorable Irene Kasalu immediately directed us to assist him, and today he is here in the office, ready and prepared for his journey to school,” said Kitaa Peter.
