It was then when he saw a familiar vehicle come to their compound.  Kirkwood got out of it and told him to pack his things because he was going back to school. Ssansa was overjoyed because his dream was to get education. In the subsquent three years, Mrs Elizabeth Bruce, a friend of John Kirkwood, paid his school fees.
