Meet Kharunda Ruth precious a clever student who walked into Speaker’s office for fees.
The Speaker of the Ugandan Parliament, the Right Honourable Annet Anita Among, shared an intriguing story on her social media handle, previously known as Twitter, in the morning. The narrative highlighted a young child who entered her offices seeking for fees assistance.
“This morning, Kharunda Ruth Precious, a courageous pupil from Nakasero Primary School, walked to the gate of Parliament and boldly told the security officers that she had come to meet me.
She was candid about her desire to stay in school despite the financial hardships her parents face in taking care of her five siblings.
Girls like Ruth deserve all the support they need and it is incumbent upon us to ensure they stay in school.
I got in touch with her parents, established where she lives and have made my humble contribution to ensure she stays in school and pursues her dreams”.
