Arunga's Schoolmate Warms Hearts With Letter on Her High School Life

  • Former KTN TV anchor Esther Arunga Twitter
  • Esther Arunga's high schoolmate, Jean Ayako, has moved Kenyans with revelations on the life of the embattled former KTN anchor, during their past days at Kenya High School.

    Arunga has been on the headlines after her confession that she lied to the police on how her 3-year-old son died. 

    This happened, on Thursday, last week, when she admitted to an Australian court that she did not give an accurate account of events on the fateful day of her son's demise.

    Jean Ayacko: Arunga's former high schoolmate

    Ayacko successfully marshalled the support of Kenya High's alumni through her Facebook letter, in which she reminisced her school days with Arunga.

    In the long letter, Ayacko gave intricate details on how Arunga was an all-rounded student, who juggled through her academics, social life and extra-curricular activities.

    "Calling on all Ex-Bomarians (Kenya High School students) and my friends to help me stand in the gap for Esther Arunga. I was in Form 1 when Esther was in Form 4," her post began.

    She went on to express how she looked up to Arunga and always wondered if she would ever be like her.

    "She was very smart. An “A” student. Not just that, she was fun, eloquent, just living her life like any high school student. I used to look at Esther and her friends and wonder if one day I would ever be like her or speak like her or be graceful yet hyper like her," she continued.

    The emotional letter went on to testify how the embattled Arunga was cheeky and often created trouble in school.

    "Esther was not those Form 4s that you forgot about. I don’t remember her being a prefect either...she was too cool, too sociable, too nice and just pro students. Like anybody else, I think I once saw her and some friends doing some punishment.

    "Probably noise making. As I said, she was the girl next door or was it student next door? Just a normal person yet very brilliant, beautiful inside and outside," she added.

     Ayacko concluded her emotive piece by calling on everyone to show love to Arunga and stand by her.

    "I am calling on all Bomarians (Kenya High School students) current and former, I am calling on my friends, my Facebook family and my prayer warriors to stand in the gap for Esther. That whatever it is she is going through, may God meet her at her point of need. May she feel God’s love. May we smother her with LOVE!" she concluded.
