They had to organise for a fundraising to raise his fee. One week later, they got the school fees which was needed but things did not go as it was planned since they had delayed for a whole week last the reporting date.
It was a terrible moment for Jalang’o and his family for him not to be admitted into that top performing school.

He was transferred to Nyang’oma Secondary School in Bondo where his brother was studying due to school fee problem. His elder brother was forced to drop out of school since his father could not manage to look for school fees of two students to give Jalang’o a chance to continue with his studies.
