Yusuf Aker who scored top marks in the KCPE 2019 exams will not be repeating Class 8 for failing to raise secondary school fees.

This is after well-wishers sprung to his aid after the heart-wrenching story was aired on CitizenTV on Thursday evening.

“We have just received a call from the Principal of Kapsabet Boys High School Kipchumba Maiyo after airing the plight of Yusuf Aker and he has pledged to pay school fees for the boy for the next four years,” Yvonne Okwara announced just minutes after telling his story.

Reports further indicate that Rtd. General Augustine Cheruiyot has offered to buy for the boy his uniforms, mattress and any other school material that is required.

Yusuf Aker had intimated that he dreamt of becoming a doctor so that he could help his community: his dream has been restored thanks to well-wishers.
