Embakasi East MP Babu Owino has offered to sponsor a university student who dropped out of school for lack of fees.
According to Babu, the comrade, named Cosmas Mutua dropped out of university to become a guard in Mombasa after failing to raise the tuition fees.
Through social media post a week ago, Babu appealed for anyone with Mutua’s whereabouts to contact him so he can help the night guard complete his education.
“If anyone knows the whereabouts of this comrade who dropped out from the university to be a watchman because of lack of fees to alert me. I want to help him complete his studies,” the legislator captioned a photo alongside Mutua.
Yesterday, Mutua travelled to Nairobi and met Babu, with the outspoken politician promising to fully sponsor him till he graduates.

“He arrived in Nairobi today morning and we discussed several issues pertaining his education which I will fully sponsor till he graduates. God bless Comrades,” wrote the former University of Nairobi students leader.
