Scramble and Partition of a nation

By Paul Barasa | February 25th 2017
In most cases, most people think that when you perform well in school you will definitely end up living a good life. To some, this is true while to others they end up living miserable lives despite them performing well in school.

 It is sometimes saddening seeing some of the best brains in the country going to waste after showing brilliance in school.

On Friday there was an exclusive story done of a former student t of Starehe Boys Center who was living a miserable life at Uhuru Park. He was feeding on leftovers wearing dirty tattered cloths that were hardly washed.

According to his certificates which he carried around in a black polyethylene bag, he got an A-(Minus) in Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE).

He went on to study Biotechnology at Kenyatta University and successfully graduated only to go to the street and started living as a street boy.

Mr. Kariuki has been living a lonely life where one can hardly tell if he has ever been to any school yet he is a brilliant guy.Probably if you meet him you will sneer at him without judging him by the content in his head.

Thanks to a good samaritan who came to his rescue just to give him hope.It is my appeal to all families, friends, and relatives to be your brother’s keeper.Let people think of others so that we can transform our society.

In most case, you find that the people who were average or poor in school doing well in life while a good number of bright guys languishing in poverty and misery.
