Never Too Late to Go Back to School
When Kenya offered free primary school education, alongside the country’s children enrolled an 84-year-old veteran of the liberation struggle. Kimani N’gan’ga Maruge realized the dream of a formal education with the help of a supportive teacher, and not surprisingly a movie, “The First Grader,” has now been made from the story. The movie has done exceedingly well in African and at various film festivals, making Maruge’s motivation an inspiration to many.
