Karimi said he has given up going to school and has opted to help his mother in doing casual labour to help her feed his eight siblings. His mother said she has exhausted all the means she thought could help her raise Sh75,000 required for Karimi to join Form One. Her efforts to seek help from the area MP bore no fruits after she was told the parliamentarian could only help by attending and contributing to a fundraising if she could organize one. “I make Sh200 per day which I don’t even manage to save because I have to feed my nine children, and pay fees for the ones in school. How will I be able to organize a fundraising?” she posed.
