Coming from a poor background with the mother and father only depending on farming, Juliana told Baraka FM that she aims to use the money to pay for her school fees.
“I am going to use it to pay for my school fees as my parents are not working; we only depend on farming.” Said a happy Juliana.
According to the father, Alphas Musembi, Juliana had a huge fee debt that she had to pay and so the news came at a perfect time.
