72 year old great-grandmother set for Kenya primary certificate examination

72 year old great- grandmother, identified as Cheptakar Kakuko Tukongole is among the candidates sitting for the 2016 Kenya Certificate Education Examination.
Kakuko, a traditional midwife whose favourite subject is Swahili will write her exams at Chepturu Primary School this month.
While explaining her reasons for returning to school at her age, the granny said she only took up the decision to enable her communicate effectively because none of 14 children went to school.
'None of my children went to school and I am the only person who can communicate in Kiswahili. I can also write but for them it’s a dream. It is only my last born and I who have taken up the challenge. My other 14 children have not enrolled in school but that has never discouraged us.’
However, Cheptakar Kakuko Tukongole is described by her classmates as the most hardworking pupil in class.

We wish  Kakuko a successful examination!!!

I'm here with hope to seek help. I'm a young lady in my twenties,trying to make my future better by going to school to become a graduate and get a job , but paying my school fees,hostel accommodation, feeding and buying my books is a problem and getting a job as a student schooling is very difficult. Any amount is very fine by me and I will greatly appreciate. I truly need help I suffered so much to get into school I don't want to defile my studies because of lack of funds. I hope someone will reach out to assist me. Thank you my email nnechichinne@yahoo.com

Buhari, are you seeing this? Its never too late to get your certificate. Hahahaa. Gosh!!I'm starting to sound like "Freeborn."
Anyway, President Buhari, please do what is right by Nigeria don't "claim any superior knowledge" over your wife or Nigerians as the reason why you won the elections and became the President. People voted massively for you because of Osibajo i.e christians and Tinubu i.e. yorubas. You were not that attractive all by yourself. Remember that always, be humble and strive to leave a legacy generations to come will bless you for.
