My dearest friend Aboliga the Frog,

I feel more than delighted to have this brilliant opportunity once and again of writing you this letter. First of all, let me please know how you and your family are. What about the little kids Junior, Muga and Maki? Are they all fine?

Back to me, I’m good and I continue well with my family only that Aunt Mwana was a little sick two weeks ago but thanks God she is all Ok right now and back to work as usual. As for my twin sisters Hafsa and Mwanaisha, they have just come from attending their Form Four graduation ceremony the moment I’m writing down this letter.

Dear Aboliga, I’m very sorry for having taken so long in replying your letter you wrote me about a month ago, you know I’m a bit busy getting prepared for my terminal exams at our school.

The aim of writing this letter is just to tell you about my plans of studying very hard if I succeed to join Form Two in the next academic year 2017. You know here at our school, we have something what we call screening in which students are required to attain the school required average to join the next class. For those students who fail to meet the required average will have only two alternatives, whether to repeat a year or quit the school, please pray for me to do well in my exams.

Apart from that, I have a special request to you my dear special one; I’m kindly asking you to send me stationery like pens, books, rulers, mathematical set and school bags when I let you know of my positive results.

Love you more and miss you much,

Your one and only best friend,

Joe Kimani.

Ps: I’ll send you some of my pictures of school trips at Ngorongoro National Park in Arusha caves, hope you’ll enjoy much. Take care, see you then and bye!
