Plight of First Class Honours graduate who can’t find a job – Nairobi News

A First Class Honours degree holder has been forced to stay home and take care of her ailing mother and disabled siblings since her graduation in 2015.

Ruth Jemutai Rono graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Economics and Statistics from Chuka University on November 13, 2015 and all her attempts to get a job since then have proved futile.

The 27 year old was hustling in Nairobi after graduation until her mother and siblings became homeless after her drunkard father razed down their house.

Speaking to Nairobi News after her story was highlighted by Baringo News, Ruth said she has numerous received calls from well-wishers promising to offer her jobs but none has followed through on their promises.

WORK EXPERIENCE

“The only work experience I have is the teaching I did after finishing high school. I taught Math and Physics in my local school, Kapkelel Secondary. During one of the long holidays I also taught standard three pupils at Kaptumoi Primary School in Elgeyo Marakwet and during other holidays I worked in M-Pesa shops,” she explained.

The second born in a family of nine children is the only one who finished college with two of her siblings disabled.

Her mother has been ailing and on better days she does menial jobs alongside Ruth to afford food for the children.

“It was by grace that I was able to complete high school and campus. I had an outstanding fee balance of Sh90,000 was cleared after one of my teachers organised a quick fundraiser during the prize giving day. The fundraiser realized Sh52,000 which I topped up with a Sh20,000 cash gift I received after scoring an A minus. The school waived the rest,” Ruth told Nairobi News.

The community organised another fundraiser which enabled her to join Chuka University and for the rest of the semesters she survived on Higher Education Loans Board (HELB) disbursements.

EDUCATION LOAN

“HELB have been sending me messages to pay up my loan and recently they warned me that they would now recover the money through my guarantors. In my current situation I’m just helpless, but I intend to pay up when I get a job,” she said.

When Baringo News visited her home in Lelbatai village in Emom Constituency, they found her performing daily household chores as her mother and siblings watched.

One of her siblings, who sat for Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education scored 250 marks, but had to repeat class eight due to lack of school fees.

“I’m hoping by the end of the year I’ll have gotten a job so that I can take her to form one next year,” Ruth said.

Ruth has applied for the recently advertised Baringo County internship program.

After declaring that long distance relationships aren’t for her, Sherlyne Anyango might have bagged herself a new mzungu boyfriend. It’s barely days since she left the country to go to the States to ‘hustle’. According to her, it’s easier to hustle in the States with her twerking talent.

Love At First Sight?

Well, she moved on quickly! This was the reaction of most of her fans after Sherlyne went live with her new catch. Most people were surprised by how fast she possibly got a boyfriend. But she hasn’t made it clear.

While this might seem unfair to her Kenyan bae, Oga Obinna, it was a mutual agreement between them to dissolve their relationship due to the distance between them.

”I’m a single boy again now😪😱!! Now with the standards you set who will fit in🤷🏿 who will fill your shoes??But Si Ni Life… But for now Kill Them with your AWESOMENESS and SECURE THE BAG!!! Don’t let nobody tell you otherwise. Plus there will always be space for you in my Heart and Kidney🙊🙈🙏🏿.”

In line to this, Sherlyne had also declared how much she misses Obinna and wrote back to him;

  ”Don’t make me cry. That’s life 😞😞. I feel bad. I miss you badly.”

Well, turns out she won’t be missing him any more after getting a new catch. Obinna has not yet responded to Sherlyne’s video posted on her Insta stories. I bet he’s not happy seeing her with another man.

Tips to help you get the perfect blazer Eve woman

 Choosing a blazer is key as it can either break or make your outfit (Image: Pinterest)

 

When it comes to buying or tailoring a new blazer, most people think it’s all about getting what fits. Even though that is one of the most vital things to focus on when selecting blazers, there are other things you need to look out for in order to have a perfect and versatile blazer.

Versatile is not just about being able to match most pieces in your closet, but something that will enhance your outfits and define your best features while at it. In case you are wondering on where to start with buying a blazer, start here:

 Always go for a colour that will pair well with most pieces in your closet (Image: Pinterest)

Yes, this is the first thing you should consider before making or buying yourself a blazer. You need to check your closet and consider the most dominant colour and pieces, can they be layered with a blazer or paired together?

Once that is set, you are good to go, though the more colourful a blazer is the more fun you will have pairing it with other pieces.

When selecting the perfect blazer always be very careful not to choose a small blazer. You might confuse a small blazer for a fitting one.

It should not be too tight that your shoulders cannot move in it or you can barely button it.

Although ladies are lucky they can go with any arm length, because it can be considered fashionable, ensure that it is your size. Also, avoid going for extra-large coats that will drown you and hide your best features.

 The design and texture of a blazer will play heavily on how good you look (Image: Pinterest)

A blazer is in between a suit jacket and a hoodie. Meaning, it should be able to pass for official and casual events. Let your guide be what you are buying it for.

There are different kinds of blazers ranging from open front blazers, single breasted blazers, belted ones, the list is endless.

Always go for a blazer that resonates with your style and closet items. Also, long blazers are classier and versatile than the shorter boyfriend ones. This is in terms of versatility.

Are you looking for a linen blazer, cotton or the suit material fabric? Do you want it shiny or matte? Do you need one with metal studded elements or with embellished buttons like the army? The kind of texture you go for will determine the way you dress your blazer.

Although blazers are meant to match with all outfits, the kind of design you go for can either limit your outfit choices or broaden your matching game.

 The longer the blazer, the more you can play around with your pieces (Image: Pinterest)

They say the longer the blazer, the double the respect. You already know what I mean by this. Longer blazers are more eye catching, trendy and versatile. It will be easier for you to pair them to a tiny skirt, pencil trouser or palazzos.

Also did I mention how well they pair with crop tops? Yes, when buying a blazer, the length is very important.

Residents of Pipeline Transami area are decrying poor drainage system that has caused sewage water to overflow in their area of residence.

The residents claim that the overflowing sewage is not only putting their lives at risk but also causing air pollution.

They have called on Nairobi Metropolitan Services and Nairobi City Water and Sewage Company to come on board and expand the sewer lines before more areas are flooded with raw human wastes coming from the blocked pipes.
“We want Major Badi and our leaders to resolve this menace immediately. It’s terrible many have been forced to shift their businesses because of the foul smell,” they said.
Pastor Joe Ndivoh of Word Evangelistic Explosion Ministries says that they have been forced to call off the Sunday School Service to protect the children from the smelly sewage.
‘‘We now fear that if prompt action is not taken then we will have a bigger health problem than this because we fear there could be an outbreak of water-borne disease anytime,’’ Pastor Ndivoh added.
