A KFB eye witness at the scene sent in this report thus:
“She was very angry, the other women were trying to pacify her. She was saying ”Upon all the money we spent, all he could finish with was a 2:1, he must not return to the house. I am taking back all the food i brought, imagine, he was supposed to finish with a first class. Those ones that finished with first class, do they have two heads? He must not return home o, he should better just go and eat that result, imagine, all the money we spent from when he started in this school…” the other women tried pacifying her and led her away to avoid a scene as onlookers were already gathering to know what was going on. “
