The bright girl from Baringo County whose touching story emerged online seeking help from well-wishers to get her a job has outlined serious concerns over male parents in the village.
Ruth Rono, 27, has said her father is deep in alcoholism and does not care about the family.
She said many male parents in Tenges ward, Baringo are traced to drinking dens where they spend time leaving parenting roles to mothers.
"The problem with our village is drunkenness, all the fathers wanaendea pombe, leaving the role of parenting for mothers alone, and because my mother is not around, I had to bear the burden," she said while shedding tears.
She scored an A minus in her KCSE exams and managed to join Chuka University as a government sponsored student after struggling with fees in her secondary school life due to poverty in her family.
Her brightness did not end in high school, she scored a First Class Honours degree in Economics and Statistics.
She later went to Nairobi city where she engaged in casual and manual jobs for four months before she was forced to go back home and take care of her siblings.
This was after her father razed all their houses, forcing her sick mother to seek refugee from her (mother) parents.
Her only prayer now is that she can be given an opportunity to change her life and that of her family.
