Siaya woman, daughter attempt to sell blood to raise Form One fee

In Summary

  • Rose Akinyi Odhiambo and her daughter Agnes Akoth who is meant to enrol at Ng’iya Girls’ High School had set camp at the Siaya County Referral Hospital in the hope that someone would buy their blood
  • The 14-year-old Akoth scored 380 marks in last year’s KCPE and was expected to join Ng’iya Girls’ High School

A middle-aged woman and her 14-year-old daughter who scored 380 marks in last year’s KCPE are hoping raise school fees by donating their blood in return for school fees.

Rose Akinyi Odhiambo and her daughter Agnes Akoth who is meant to enrol at Ng’iya Girls’ High School had set camp at the Siaya County Referral Hospital in the hope that someone would buy their blood.

Unfortunately, no offer was forthcoming with the hospital saying blood could not be donated for a fee.

The mother-daughter duo was left stranded with a Ksh.28,000 amount  needed for the bright girl to join Form One.

Akinyi told the media that she has visited countless offices after the KCPE results were announced to no avail.

She had only managed to get one well-wisher who had promised to pay the daughter’s first term fees.

Even with the little help, she was still struggling to raise money to shop for the personal effects that her daughter needed for school.

Agnes Akoth who sat her KCPE exams at Liganwa primary school in Alego now fears that she may lose her shot at an education if they do not raise the said amount.

She had pleaded with well-wishers to come to her aid and ensure she joins school in the very first step of chasing her dreams.
