On Monday, March 28, Education Cabinet Secretary, George Magoha, released the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) results at Mtihani House in Nairobi.

A 28-year-old inmate at the Manyani Maximum Security Prison in Taita Taveta was freed from prison after the High Court acquitted him of sexual assault charges days after he scored 401 marks in the recent released KCPE results.

With neither a calling letter nor fees to help him join secondary school, Juma Nyasi was staring at uncertainty over continuing with his education.

Fortunately, the Taita Taveta County government has intervened and gave him a full scholarship to join Ikutha Boys Secondary School in Kitui County. He is among the students who are set to benefit from the county scholarship programme for their secondary education.

Mr Nyasi was serving life in prison after he was convicted of sexually assaulting a three-year-old boy.

This was the second time he sat the KCPE, revealing he dropped out of school at Form Two due to lack of school fees.
