Kensmith, who just completed his secondary school education, deplored how need of funds and financial fortitude has hampered his projects of making robots and advance consolidating on his innovation as his father is without work whereas the family lives off his mother’s bean cakes commerce.
He said: “I discovered my talents when I was 7 and have been building things ever since including locally-made remote-controlled cars, single seater aircraft, two-seater sea boat and the most recent is the motorbike. “My major challenge so far has been finance.
