I am Richard Matundura was born in Nyanza province in Kisii County .I was raised by my parents although now Iam orphan. I went through primary Education and passed to go to Secondary despite the posed challenge of school fees.

I had to hustle to pay my arrears and obtained my certificate. I also paid my computer studies, diploma and now doing my master degree in Kisii university
