The passing of a great African,Mzee Kimani Maruge

Read the story of the oldest man to ever enroll in aprimary school. Mzee Kimani Maruge from Kenya http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/africa/8202378.stm but he had fullfilled his dream of studying.

The great-grandfather held the Guinness World Record for being the oldest person to start primary school, at the age of 84.

To you Mzee, to me you proved that it’s never too late to salvage a dream. And your willing to persevere studying with kids who are your great grandfather leaves many of us in Africa to rethink education.

May the lord see it that u rest in the well deserved place for your search for knowledge was for a good cause (Kimani wanted to learn how to read the Bible for himself)
