Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru has come to the rescue of orphaned twin brothers who were about to miss an opportunity to join university due to lack of fees.

Samuel Comba and his twin brother Antony Muriuki got admitted to Maseno University and Moi University respectively, but were yet to report due to lack of funds.

The plight of the two was brought to the attention of the governor while she was on a development projects inspection tour in Kavote, which is their home area.

They both got a mean score of B+(plus) despite having had to drop out severally from the nearby Kavote Mixed Day Secondary School where their 65-year-old grandmother struggled to maintain them.

When she heard of their plight, Waiguru promised to assist them throughout their university education.

The promise was fulfilled on Sunday when the education executive James Kinyua presented them with the school fees cheques on behalf of the governor.

Kinyua urged them to work hard in their education and set a good example for other students to emulate.

The twins could not hide their joy as they expressed their gratitude to the governor for coming to their aid.

They promised to work hard to excel in their studies and in help others in society in future.

Comba will be pursuing a degree in Information Technology while his brother Muriuki will be taking a Bachelor of Education in Arts.
