Starehe Boys’ gives full scholarship to Tharaka Nithi boy whose father was murdered in cold blood

Gitumi Mwithi, a bright and intelligent student from Tharaka Nithi County, will be attending Starehe Boys’ Centre for free, according to a press release from the school’s director, Mr. Fred Okono.

The decision comes following the tragic news that Gitumi’s father was allegedly killed over a disagreement regarding ancestral property ownership. Mr. Okono stated that despite previous communication, the acceptance letter does not need to be picked up immediately and that the school will wait until the family has settled before opening.

The only expense that Gitumi will have to pay is for his uniform, but this will be covered by school alumni who have volunteered to pay the cost.

The boy’s father, Julius Mwithi, was brutally killed at his home in Mwanyani village on Monday morning, with the suspects still at large according to police. Gitumi’s education will proceed without interruption, as the school administration promises to support him during this difficult time.
