Paul Ongili alias Babu Owino who is the Embakasi Member of Parliament was a happy and emotional man on Monday, January 13, after he was able to finally fulfill his pledge to a former comrade who dropped out of University and ended up as a watchman.

Cosmas Mutua, a former Multimedia University, was forced to drop out of campus due to lack of fees.

The MP had initially launched a search for Cosmas who after dropping out of school had opted to work as a watchman in Mombasa.

“If anyone knows the whereabouts of this comrade who dropped from the university to be a watchman because of lack of fees to alert me. I want to help him complete his studies,” he wrote.

“Everybody knows my story, everybody knows how I suffered in my childhood growing up. I know what hunger is. I know what lack of school fees means. I know the pain of poverty,” Babu Owino revealed after honouring his pledge.

He went on to reiterate that it was everyone’s responsibility to look out for one another.

“I knew I had a responsibility to help. This is not for me. This is so that our comrade can, in turn, help another when his time comes, that’s why I paid his fees today. Comrades must stand together!” he reiterated.
