Former Rarieda MP and now CS Raphael Tuju has confirmed that he never knew how an under wear looked like until he joined Starehe Boys’ Center for his secondary education.

According to Tuju, his first underwear was a gift from the institution’s founder Dr Geoffrey William Griffin.

“I had never worn innerwears until I came to Starehe. I came here bare…I was a miserable poor little boy when I came here and my first innerwear was given to me by Dr Griffin,” tuju recalled

He was sharing his experience at the institution during an event to mark his old schools’ 60th year anniversary last week on Friday.

Starehe Boys’ Centre and School was founded in 1959 as a rescue centre in Nairobi for poor and destitute boys orphaned by the Mau Mau uprising and has stayed true to its initial charitable purpose, by enrolling needy boys.

The school to date educates freely at least 70% of its total students.

Well, Tuju was priviledged to join the institution having come from a poor background, a life whose details he did not disclose at the event.

He joined the prestigious school after successfully completing his primary education at Majiwa and Nakuru West Primary Schools.
