Samuel Kazungu Kadenge, a father of 11, joined Standard Three at Ganze Primary School in July 2016 to be able to learn how to read and write.

Kadenge will sit for 2016 KCPE exams, which he says he is ready and is also eager to proceed to secondary school to attain the KCSE certificate.

“With the few months that I have been in school, I can say I am ready for KCPE, my dream is to proceed to secondary school so that I can qualify to be enrolled in a training college,” he was quoted by Nation.

He chose to got back to school at his old age after he was shortchanged and denied to manage an institution he founded, Kimbule Primary School.

Kadenge said he was heartbroken after he was forced to hand over the school to the government because he was illiterate and could not be part of the management committee.

“I was blocked from sitting on the management committee of the school because I was illiterate, I was demoralized but on the other hand it reminded me the need to be literate,” he said.

He is now optimistic that he will pass his KCPE exams and KCSE exams to be able to become a teacher.

Kadenge also decided to go back to school to avoid being conned by people when receiving MPesa messages.

Anderson Kahindi, the headteacher at Ganze, said the old man is outgoing and religious adding that they are confident he will make them proud in KCPE.
