During the finalyear Kanyeki was unable to be paid for the fees for the fourth course.He therefore explained the prolem to the class teacher and the class teacher told the principal,by which the principal refused and after this information came to the recognisaton of the teacher,he was contributed for those fees. After the results Kanyeki emerged the top in the Rift-Valley province which in our surprise was all away from school.Now Kanyeki has been taken By equity to work before proceeding to a more higher learning institution.
