A letter believed to be from a form four student alleged to be an orphan has gone viral, speaking mixed reactions from Kenyans, with some shedding tears.
The students who said she is 17, said that she is an orphan with no one to pay for her school fees.
In the letter, she had alleged that she been sent home for school fees, but since there was no one to clear the same for her, she was appealing to the President Uhuru Kenyatta to come through and help her.
She dreams to be a teacher in future but had no hope for the same.
The letter is dated 6th November but it appeared on social media this Tuesday. It remains unclear whether the President has received it or not yet.

“Receive my warm greetings my beloved president It is with great pleasure to write to you with a high hope that it finds you well. My name is Philomena Mutheu 17 years, a farm 4 Candidate at St Mary’s school Kithangaini.
Am a total orphan going through a lot of unbearable Challenges. Am not in School, I was sent home a week ago due to unpaid school fees and other basic needs. Am always top ten in class.
I have nobody to assist me, this has led to a lot of stress and depression
I aspire to be a teacher but I have lost hope in life. I need a lot of guidance and counselling to gain strength’ May the almighty God continue giving you wisdom and strength to lead us.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Yours faithfully, Philomena M Mutheu,” The Letter Reads.

Machakos Governor Dr Alfred Mutua has already rushed to her rescue promising to help her settle all school arrears and make sure her dream becomes a reality.
I have just seen the saddening letter by school girl Philomena. I feel her pain. When I was in form 2 I dropped out of school for lack of fees and was saved by a church elder who paid for me. I will personally ensure Philomena is back in school and gets to sit for her exams. pic.twitter.com/EiTEzmSD7s
