 I know many of you can remember baby Osinya,the young boy whose saddening story captured the nation's attention lost his mother in March 2014 after al Shabaab militants stormed a church in Likoni, Mombasa and opened fire killing his mother and several other people.

 To the best of my knowledge I know his story no longer matter to you right now. No happy New Year messages sent to him. No wishes of long live baby Osinya. After Osinya’s younger brother Satrin was successfully operated on, and the bullet removed no one except his foster family knows their where abouts.Thanks to one man- Nairobi Senator Mike Mbuvi AKA Sonko.

Senator Sonko has been closely monitoring Osinya's progress and that of his brother up to date giving them the necessary attention they need. Osinya again makes a heroic move by posting the best results in his KCPE exams.

His ‘father’ Mr. sonko and the entire family are happy and proud of their son for showing that he is capable of climbing high the academic ladder. Through this family continued support it enabled him to pass her exams. The Nairobi senator on behalf of the entire family congratulated him for making it in his exams and joining one of the prestigious high school in Kenya.

“I wish to take this opportunity on behalf of my lovely Wife and on my own behalf to congratulate my adopted son Gift Osinya the boy who rescued his younger brother Satrin during terror attack in which their mother was brutally murdered.”

According to Mr. Sonko Gift scored an A Plain in 2016 KCPE and was today officially enrolled at Lenana School in form one. He further said that it is a good step that will see him achieve in life. Senator Sonko added that he prays that the Almighty God continue to bless him. He said that that marks the beginning of a successful academic journey in his life.

Meanwhile he wished those who sat for KCPE exam and did score good grades hence missing a chance join form one all the best in their lives. He further said that they should not be discouraged because failing in an exam does not mean you are a failure in life. According to him there are still hopes for them to do well in life.

“It is also my sincere prayers to the Almighty to open ways for those who did not get an opportunity to qualify for form one admission for failure in exams as it is not failure in life.So many wish to excel in academics but only a few achieve this kind of success do not give up in life, said Sonko.
