Kenya: Brainy Student Seeks Fees

The dream of a student from Baringo North to become a doctor may have been dashed for lack of Sh79,000 school fees. Hillary Chesang was selected to join Lenana school after he scored 386 marks in last year's KCPE.

Chesang, who was to report to the school on Tuesday, said his parents cannot raise the fees. "I have always wanted to be a doctor. The fact that my family cannot raise the school fees hurts me so much," he said. His father Musa Chetalam asked well wishers to help him raise the fees saying Chesang is a focused and hardworking student.
