Baraka attended Lesiraa Primary School.
In August 2016 (his final year) he was placed tenth in his school examinations. His father has two wives and his mother has five children (Baraka is the first born). His father used to be a cattle driver, but he is no longer strong enough to work. Baraka’s mother sells home-made alcohol. His favourite subjects are English, Science, Mathematics and Geography. He prefers to study in his free time rather than play. He would like to be a neuro-surgeon one day.
Baraka started his secondary education at Moita Boys’ Secondary Boarding School in January 2017. He is being sponsored by Debbie Fordham.
