Remember Emily Wanjiru; The 6 year old girl who stood before the President and his guests buzzing with confidence and splendidly recited a poem and amazed everyone?

She was enrolled to a new school by the President, and uplifted from the poverty stricken Gachororo slum in Juja. Starting this term, Emily will be a student at St Petroc Premier School Runyenjes, an institution a million times better than her old one in terms of infrastructure.

Before school opened, Emily, her family and teachers were hosted at State House Nairobi by President Uhuru’s private secretary Jomo Gecaga yesterday. Here are the photos.
