Jean Marie Vianney Rusengamihigo, a 54-year-old Rwandan whose fortune in business was brought to an end by the covid-19 pandemic made up his mind last year to join school once again after 39 years. According to Jean Marie, he dropped out of school in 1983 during a time when everything was taught in Kinyarwanda.
He said that he has not had any trouble studying with children fit to be his grandchildren. In his submission, he said that these children merely look at him as their fellow classmates. They usually benefit from his vast history knowledge that he usually shares with them during class breaks.
Rusenagamihigo is now is the fifth year at Shangi primary school located in the Nyamasheke district in western Rwanda.
