Mr Mwanyika said his daughter, who sat her KCSE examinations last year, wanted to apply for a nursing course at Kenyatta National Hospital Nursing School.
He said she might miss the opportunity as the application period is almost coming to a close. Mr Mwanyika, who lost his job last year, said he had no money.
“A well-wisher has offered to pay fees my daughter’s (nursing) fees. If this delay continues, the offer might be withdrawn,” he said.
The school, however, declined to comment on the issue.
Taita Taveta County Director of Education Simon Wanjohi, who said he was not aware of the issue, promised to investigate.
“Let me investigate and come back to you on Monday, I am not aware of the case,” he said.
