Ruth’s parents separated some years back after her father, who is alcoholic, razed their three grass thatched houses, forcing her sick mother to seek refuge from her parents.
This forced her to go back to the village and assume the responsibilities of her parents.
“After campus, I spent time in Nairobi doing some casual jobs but that didn’t last long since after four months I was called by my mother and she told me that our father had razed down all the three houses following family disagreements,” she revealed to Baringo News.
The desperate girl has been doing manual jobs at their home to provide for her siblings, something that has become hard due to limited earnings. This has forced her siblings to drop out of school.
