Good News From The Government

A play…. It is about 4P.M in the evening and this lady and her father are seated relaxing in the sitting room. Then her father breaks the silence and asks her when she plans to go check her K.C.P.E results now that the Education Cabinet Secretary had released them earlier in the day. But with fee balance she tells her father that this alone would make the head teacher deny giving her the results slip.

As they are conversing about this issue, there   is a knock on the door and the father asks his daughter to go and usher in their supposed visitor. She opens the door and is surprised to see her mother at such a time different from her normal routine that she is used to coming home at night.

English: Father and daughter.

They both chat happily at which instance her father calls to ask who it is that she is talking to with all the excitement. She tells him that it’s her mother and he also wonders why the unique early home coming for they are used to her arriving very late. The mother and the daughter then moves in to the sitting room and her husband tells her that he has an important issue urgent to discuss with her but first he asks his daughter to bring him a some water.

As their daughter leaves the room, he tells his wife that he is still in a dilemma how they will be able to educate their daughter given that it was still a burden for them to cater for her primary school education. He went on and said with the results out, he knows that she will not be a disappointment since she has always been a bright girl. They both agree that the economy has been so unfair to them in terms of finances but they are still hoping to give the best to their daughter.

Then there is a knock on the door and his wife goes ahead to open the door and a neighbor comes in. After he greets them, he breaks the good news that the government has waived all fees arrears of all candidates in the last year’s examination and has directed the head teachers to release the results of those with fee balances. What a joyous moment for this couple since their prayers have been answered for such news has come in handy for their current problem. Their daughter then comes in an enquires why they are all excited, her father tell her the good news suggesting that she could now go for her results.

The play shows a government that is committed to ensuring smooth learning of children and especially for the less fortunate.
