Kyulungwa market in Mwingi central sub county is known for producing very notorious thieves.
The area has had the traits for the past several years as most young men who come from the area end up becoming very rowdy thieves.
Even while passing by the market where most youths are seen basking on rocks beside the road, many motorists are warned to be very cautious as the zone has been labelled a red zone.
While in Mwingi town and someone mentions to have come from Kyulungwa, this suddenly raises eyebrows as the area is wide known for its negative stories of theft .However, a group of 100 youths from the area have decided to change the narrative of the area.
The youths who happen to be alumni of Kyulungwa Secondary School have started a campaign of sponsoring students in order to boost education in the area.
Patrick Mwendwa, Vision Together Foundation CEO sponsored two vulnerable students while the alumni had visited the school for career talk and also issuance of sanitary towels to the girls.
Mwendwa said having studied in the school and coming from a very needy background motivated him to give back to the society by sponsoring two students to finish their education with financial hiccups.
Daniel Mwaniki, the leader of the group said as team, they are planning to construct a new classroom as plans are underway to ensure the school gets a school bus.
Lauding the exercise, Mr.Daniel Kyale, the Deputy Principal said most students in the school are very needy and majority survive on bursaries while others depend on well wishers to educate them.
