I can now fully concentrate on my studies and achieve my dream of being a medical doctor,” Wasike says and adds: “I have always had the dream of serving my country in this capacity (medical doctor) and now that I have got this opportunity, there is nothing that can deter me, God willing.”
Wasike is required to report to school immediately.
