Pastor Writes KCSE Exam After Dropping Out Of School 37 Years Ago

Pastor Writes KCSE Exam After Dropping Out Of School 37 Years Ago.
After dropping out of class 6 in 1985, a 57-year-old pastor and father of two in Embu is sitting for his KCSE exams.
John Rutere, pastor of Yahweh Restoration Assembly Church in Gikuuri, Embu East, said he resumed his academic ambitions in 2016 at Kangaru District Education Board (D.E.B) Centre, an adult education center in Embu where he sat for KCPE exams and then KCSE exams this year.
Rutere found himself in this situation after his parents divorced and his father later remarried, forcing him to start working odd jobs to support his siblings.
“I dropped out after my parents separated, forcing me to start doing casual jobs in order to take care of my siblings because we were left in the care of an unsupportive stepmother,’’ he said.
“Our stepmother didn’t support us in school neither did our father and many are the days we slept hungry because they denied us food causing us to drop out of school,’’ he recounted.
Rutere stated that his suffering while under the care of his stepmother led him to discover God’s calling and purpose, which was in the preaching ministry.
After attending a bible school in Eldoret in 1995 and learning the fundamentals of theological studies, he stated that he felt compelled to return to school in order to improve his basic education.
He went on to say that it was after this conviction that he began preparing, a dream that became a reality in 2016 when he enrolled in Kangaru D.E.B education center and adult education center in Embu and sat for his KCPE and now KCSE exams.

“I needed more education to handle church responsibilities and believers, some of them are much educated to avoid misleading them due to illiteracy,’’ he said.
The pastor, who aspires to earn a degree in theology later in life, said he is well prepared for the exams and hopes to shine when the results are announced.
