Kenya: Hopeful Roots for Higher Education

A Trans Nzoia women's representative aspirant has urged parents to help their children further their education.

Justinah Sitit urged parents to enroll children who fail to meet the University's direct entry cut off points to certificate courses after which they can advance to diplomas and bachelor degrees.

She was addressing the press in Kitale yesterday. "Even if your child got a D+ at KCSE, do not think he or she has failed. This category of students can be enrolled at higher institutions of learning through bridging courses to pave way for higher education," she said.
