This man is leaving no stone unturned even at his age.

A 67-year old man from Nakuru county in Kenya who dropped out of high school in 1969 still wants to pursue his dream job as a teacher.

Peter Mutomo, a father of six, who is now a small-scale farmer is very ambitious to attend high school and make it to the university in order to quest for his dream job.

“I dropped out of Elburgon Harambee Secondary school in 1969 due to financial problems. I am convinced I will pass because I have been bright since my childhood,” Mutomo said.

“I am sure I have not fully exploited the potential I was given by God and I am not what He meant me to be. Life has taught me enough lessons and I am now moving towards my goal.”

Mutomo, who dropped out in form two, said he did casual jobs and that he had been tied down by the responsibilities that came with marriage.

The father of six, who wants to teach Kiswahili and Christian Religious Education, said he approached Molo MP Jacob Macharia and sought his financial assistance.

He said the MP was “impressed” by his fluency in Kiswahili and instructed him to get an admission letter then apply for bursary at the constituency office.

Noting that only two of his children completed secondary education, Mutomo said he would also like to inspire the rest to pursue their studies.

“I do not want to transmit the problem to my kids; I want to be a role model to them. Even though they are married, their age allows them to do well if they are determined,” he said.

Mutomo said he is “certain” he will do well and then later go to the university to become a teacher…
