Most people can only dream of riding in a limousine, but for two students from Maragwa, this came true as they reported to secondary school.

In what they termed as the ride of their lives, the two got the privilege after emerging the best in the 2015 KCPE exam at their respective schools.

Anne Claire Njeri and Erick Muritu could not hide their joy as they were picked up from their former schools on their way to high school.

Muritu, who scored 386 marks at Marura Primary School, was admitted to Chinga Boys High School.

Anne Claire managed 371 marks at Maragwa Primary School and secured a place at Moi Girls’ High School in Nairobi.

The students got the ride courtesy of Mr Anthony Chege, an education philanthropist and mentor to the two schools in Maragwa Sub-County.

The limo ride is part of motivation programmes started in a bid to inspire learners to improve performance in Maragwa.

The limousine caused quite a stir in the village, with pupils and residents jostling to get a glimpse of it.

Mr Chege called on well-wishers and professionals from Murang’a County to volunteer in mentorship programmes to inspire students.
