During this hard time when the world is battling with the novel coronavirus, it has really been a hard task for parents to keep their children at home. Most have resolved to engage themselves in issues set to ruin their lives. A few have taken the opportunity to develop them as they shape their lives for tomorrow.

Brian Onsombi,13, is a standard seven pupil at Kisii primary school and hails from Galilaya, Kisii Central Ward in Kisii county. Like many other children gotten off-guard by the COVID-19 pandemic, Brian has really found it hard to cope with the situation.  As a way of manoeuvering around the unpromising future, he has taken to crocheting to keep himself busy.

On Friday,21 he presented a well-done doormat with inscriptions,” Radio Vuna, Tosesenigwe Kera Engaki” to Radio Vuna Manager, Mr. John Ogoi. He took the chance to congratulate Brian for the good work done and also called out to other children out there to benchmark Brian as a way of identifying their talents during these trying moments.

“We are grateful for the good example that has been set by young talents like Brian, may other children out there make their dreams a reality by discovering their talents that otherwise could remain to be just but ‘vestigial’ if not well utilized,” he said.

Parents have been advised to give their children ample time when they are trying to figure out the best in them.
