Edward’s father passed away when he was just three years old. He now lives with his mother and six siblings, and the village council help them live by providing them with food every now and then.
Edward started Moita Boys’ Secondary Boarding School in January 2011. He was absent for a significant part of his second year due to illness, and consequently did not pass his National Form Two Examinations. However, the school allowed him to resit his second year, and he passed the examinations successfully this time. He is being sponsored by the pupils of Kader Primary School, Acklam.
