Activities brought to a standstill as Form One student reports to school in a chopper: PHOTOS

Activities at Nyeri High School were temporarily brought to a standstill Wednesday morning, when a student set to join Form One reported in a chopper.

Kevin Muriuki, who sat 2016 KCPE at Karichen Primary School, was flown to Nyeri High School in a chopper, courtesy of the Kenya Air Force Veterans Association.

Muriuki, who comes from a needy background, dreams of becoming a pilot; and his education sponsors, the Kenya Air Force Veterans Association, made him taste the feeling by giving him his first trip to school in a chopper.

The rare spectacle temporarily interrupted activities at the Nyeri High School when the copter carrying Muriuki, his parents and sponsors touched down at the institution’s playing ground.

Other students, who had already reported to school, milled around the chopper to have a glimpse of it.

His parents, who are casual labourers, could not hide their joy following the breakthrough after efforts to secure sponsorship elsewhere bore no fruits.

The association official, retired Colonel Joseph King’ori, said Muriuki’s ambition to join the aviation industry caught their attention and they felt the need to chip in and make it a reality.
