Former Kakamega Senator Boni Khalwale’s daughter who performed exemplary in the 2021 Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) has joined form one.
Khalwale in a statement on Thursday, May 5, said Melissa Khamwenyi Khalwale who was among two of his children that sat the primary education had been admitted.
Khamweny who was a student at Kakamega Hill Junior School scored 402 marks in the KCPE results that were announcd by Education CS George Magoha in March this year.
“Day one in Form One! A happy Melissa Khamwenyi Khalwale takes the first stride,” Khalwale captioned Melissa’s photo posted on Twitter.
Khalwale who dropped his Kakamega gubernatorial bid in favor of Kakamega senator Cleophas Malala ahead of the August 9, General Election thanked God, teaching and non-teaching staff of Malinya and Kakamega Hill Junior School.
“My family and I, in 1000 special ways thank God, the teaching and non-teaching staff of Malinya Primary School and Kakamega Hill Junior School for the 402,” he said.
The senator who never shies away from celebrating his expansive family on social media, especially when exam results are released further took to social media to celebrate his grand-daughter Ellen Khahondo Khalwale, who joined Grade One this week.
“Grade one! Ellen Khahondo Khalwale after insisting her mother calls me so that she could tell me about her new school. Children are God’s message that ours is a world without end,” Khalwale said.
The outspoken politician likes to celebrate his family on social media but remains tight-lipped on the exact number of children he has.
He prefers to keep his clan away from the lime-light that has been his political career of at least 20 years.
Kenyans on Twitter never hesitate to give their views whenever Khalwale congratulates one of his children for a good performance.
