This is coming after it was reported that Men in adult education classes, opted to learn separately from their female counterparts.  Kwale County Adult and Continuing Education Officer Argwings Owuor said.

“Many men feel ashamed when their wives beat them in the classroom, a factor that has made a majority of them to suspend attending the adult learning classes,” Owuor said.

  12. Knowledge is power, and learning has no age limit.she is determined to learn and she will surely acquire the knowledge which she seek, may

  13. There is no limit to education we all learn daily at the same time i think they should age levels to education because looking at the pictures these people are old enough to be benefiting from their children I think no need of education for them

  14. What did the grandma need education for again. To communicate with the angels in heaven?
    And the men, have they forgotten that what a woman cannot do can never be done.

  15. Though when there is not much money, this could be a waste. But then I like her determination. At least if this is the only thing that would make her happy before she dies

  16. Wow, this is inspiring and amazing, she has really shown that even at old age, learning continues, education is important, knowledge is power

  17. That lovely she want to be educated. Before she die… Because to me 95 years of age and still want to read and write. I pray she grab

  18. With determination nothing is impossible.i like her way…go on grandma! May God help u to understand all you are goin to learn…welldone.she will do well.

  19. What does she want to learn at this old age, who is asking her to read or write anything, let her go and rest and wait for death to come.

  20. Learning like they said never end,till someone dies,but this is so funny,at 95 years, someone wants to read and write, God help her.

  21. It’s a nice one, I feel it will help her to keep busy and fit. She needs it to keep her energetic and flexible. Think she will enjoy the process.

  22. Nice one ma’am. No age is late for learning. May God keep you still you become a professional in the field you will wanna be.

  23. There is no age limit in education but don’t she think she is too old….what will she use education to do at this time of her life

  24. If her sight is stil okay no problem but truely i dont see the need for that.meanwhile everyone in that class is old lol

  25. whats the need please ,these people are close to their grave,,,,there must reason they are doing this….more strength though

  26. Education has no boundary í hear people say. . At any point in life with self determination one can enroll to be educated.

  27. wow, such a determine woman, at her age she still went to school, with such determination God will help her to read and write.

  28. Nice one mama
    I believe no time is too late
    Even if she doesn’t work with the education, she’s a little more better than her counterpart who are still at home

  29. No age is too old to learn something new, as far as it will keep the life going and fresh why not go for it..and as u can see from the pictures she’s determined to learn

  30. Hmmm’!

    All for the sake of reading, who knows it’s probably what she’d wanted to do but now garage opportunity.
    You go, grand ma

  31. Lol
    How long does she have to live
    Coupled with sight issues and other complication
    How would her brain even cope

  32. Education has no limitation…she must have heard about the important of Education and enrolled into school to acquire education… Is a lesson to all both young and old that no time is late to go to school.

  33. What A bold Step, But i think Is A punishment to her because She Is old already, She can’t Even See well. She should go and rest, My opinion though!

  34. Lolsss, great grandma goes to school, it’s a nice step actually but she won’t find it easy at all because of her old age

  35. In as much as I don’t know what she is planning to achieve by going to school at the age of 95. I am still amazed at her determination.

  36. Though when there is not much money, this could be a waste. But then I like her determination. At least if this is the only thing that would make her happy before she dies

  37. Education has no age limit. Mama is probably bored at home, so she needs something to keep her mind and soul active. Thumbs up mama

  38. This seems quite late and a sign that education hasn’t really been developed in Kenya They should try and improve their education sector. Learning never ends even at old age

  39. I Should Not Be Surprise because there is nothing new in this world…..
    to my advice they should rather leave her to rest while she is old

  40. This is to show that learning is not by age, it requires determination. Even if she learns nothing at least she fulfilled a dream of hers. Young ones should learn from her

  41. This woman is a very ambitious woman. I salute het courage and determination. I pray she completes her learning exercise.
