Losing a parent is very painful. It’s a sad moment that no child should go through. Recently a young Tanzanian girl, who sat for Certificate of Secondary Education Examination (CSEE/KCSE) found out that her family had passed and buried while she was in school.
Her family was headed to her school for prayer day before she sat for the exams but didn’t make it to wish her success in her exams.
The touching human interest story has gone viral and Kenyans who lost their parents while sitting for KCSE exams have narrated their sad experiences.
Here are some of the emotional stories;
Elvy Obinga Sad indeed, my mom died just a week to my final exams in University. I requested the family to preserve the body until I sit for all my papers. They agreed and the body was taken from mortuary the following day after my last paper. I still thank the lecturer who advised me not to skip the exam because of death. Took most of my time designing her funeral program instead of revising for the exams 😭😭😭
Linda Otieno My mum died a day to my exams in form 3..I had to do my exams since it was the last term. She was in the mortuary for 2weeks just for me to finish my exams. The day I finished I went to mortuary straight from school 😢
