“I have seen picture of several students stranded in Nairobi after school opening date was postponed. I will pay their fare back home,” Sakaja announced.

“Following the postponement of School Opening Dates and the fact that many parents had already released their children to report to school this morning, I walked into the city and paid the return fare for the stranded students. My teams are in various bus stations and termini sorting out the students in uniform who need assistance.”Governor Sakaja said.
