The census enumerator who has since been nicknamed ‘Mtu wa Census’ was supposed to graduate from Egerton University last year but was unable to do due to lack of school fees prompting him to result to doing odd jobs.

During an interview with a local media house, Collins Kiprono narrated how he had struggled to make ends meet doing odd jobs before landing the census job.

In the video which many Kenyans came out to describe as bringing out the spirit of census, Kiprono is seen dancing as the children's chanted “Mtu wa Census” jumping up and down not aware that his colleague was filming him.

Collins Kiprono who is set to graduate later this year had pursued a Bachelor of Science in Geography.

“I’m grateful to everyone who made this possible. Finally, I can now graduate,” said an elated Kiprono.
