Jalango Degree: Popular comedian and radio presenter Felix Odiwuor alias Mzee alang’o has graduated. Jalang’o has graduated with a degree in community development from Daystar University.
The comedian graduated years after leaving high school. The graduation follows a bold decision the comedian made to return to school. Jalang’o has previously shared his story and pursuit for education.
“Maseno school…let me tell you a short story…When I sat for my KCPE I got a chance at Maseno school by luck because with 442 Marks I think I was lucky…I was soo happy just like everyone because a chance at Maseno school was all you needed! This dream was not to be! School fees was nowhere! My dad ( God Rest hi soul in peace) organised several fund drives and by the time he was getting the money I was two weeks late from reporting day! My chance was gone!” he previously shared.
But the Principal refused. He added that the rejection made his late dad break down in tears, as he pleaded with the principal to offer his son an admission but all was in vain.
“We walked with my dad out of the school after hours of pleading to be allowed in, the principal refused! I had never seen my dad cry but that day we cried together! We walked to the main road got in a Marathi and went home! I later joined form one in a different school but with Maseno school uniform because my old man could not afford another pair! So for the whole of form one I was in a different uniform in a different school…to cut the long story short, today I was at Mseno school advising and giving wisdom to their class of 2018!Once again GOD WINS!”
After hitting a dead end at Maseno, Jalang’o and his dad traveled back to Homabay where he was enrolled at the Bar Kanyango Secondary School in Siaya County.
At Kanyango, school fees was still a problem forcing his father to transfer him to Nyangoma Boys in Bondo where he struggled until he completed his O level and scored a C+. Jalango Degree.
