Nairobi Senator Mike Sonko couldn’t help it but share his joy when his adopted son, Gift Osinya, performed very well in his 2016 KCPE exams.
Gift is a gifted kid, he scored 399 marks out of a possible 500, and Sonko being the flambo guy that he is, had to brag about it on social media.
“Today, I can say I’m a very proud father, Gift Osinya has scored a mean grade of A. Total marks 399 as follows: A in English 77 mrks; A in Kiswahili 85 mrks; A in Mathematics 87 mrks; A in Social studies 77mrks and B in Science 73mrks,” the philanthropic politician said.
Monday, January 9, saw thousands of kids who sat for KCPE in 2016, join different secondary schools and Gift was not left behind. He joined other high achievers at Lenana School in Nairobi to begin his secondary education.
Social media-loving Sonko once again shared the good news saying how proud he was to see his son join high school.
“I wish to take this opportunity on behalf of my lovely Wife and on my own behalf to congratulate my adopted son Gift Osinya, the boy who rescued his younger brother Satrin during terror attack in which their mother was brutally murdered. Gift scored an A Plain in 2016 KCPE and was today officially enrolled at Lenana School in form one,” Sonko wrote.
As told above, Gift and his younger brother, Santrin, made national headlines following an incident where terrorists shot at a Mombasa congregation where the two and their late mother were part of.
Their mum was killed in the shooting incident and Santrin was left with a bullet stuck in his head.
The Senator adopted the two boys and promised to educate them to university level.
