Egerton University clears outstanding fee balance for ‘Mtu wa Census’

There’s a saying that when given a task, it is important to give your all as you may not know who is watching.

This may as well describe the fate of census enumerator Colins Kiprono who moved Kenyans after he was captured on video playing with children during the census exercise.

Kiprono would later disclose it wasn’t all rosy for him as financial difficulties had forced him to postpone his graduation.

But things are getting better for Kiprono after Egerton University Chancellor, Dr Narendra Raval, cleared the understanding fees balance of KSh 58,877.

Kiprono was meant to graduate last year in December with a Bachelor of Science in Geography from Egerton University, but he couldn’t due to an outstanding fees balance.

“I can only say asante to everyone who made this possible. Now I can official graduate and start looking for employment,” he Kiprono.

Collins Kiprono made headlines after his famous ‘watu wa census’ video went viral on social media.

The video made the  Kenya National Bureau of Statistics (KNBS) to ask netizens to share information of Kiprono so they could ‘celebrate’ him.

Kiprono has since disclosed that he is still waiting for KNBS to make good it’s bargain.

Prior to the census job, Kiprono was working as a casual worker in Kericho County.
