The world's oldest school pupil wants to marry a rich woman

The world’s oldest schoolboy, 85-year-old Kimani Nganga Maruge took his first flight going to the US.

Maruge got into Guinness Book as the oldest school pupil in the world in 2003 after free elementary education had been introduced in Kenya. He is studying in the second grade at the moment. Two of his thirty grandchildren go to the same school.

Maruge is going to speak at the UN Millennium Summit in New York and to tell its participants about the importance of free elementary education. Besides, he is planning to meet with the ex-US President Bill Clinton in order to ask him for building a free hospital for AIDS patients in Kenya.

Before flying to the US Maruge also told the journalists that he was going to look for a wife in America.

"I would also like to marry a rich American woman to bring back money for my children. There's no point marrying a poor woman because I'm also poor," he explained.
