The boy child was happy. For once there is someone advocating for their well being. Here are some reactions about the registration.
Gitau Caroline: This is hilarious but names might not mean anything… however… why do politicians start Foundations when in power instead of before…. we cling so much to the facade of a legacy founded on the lack in society….
Nyoro Kanini KaWangui: I would have loved Boy Child Foundation in place of Team Mafisi Foundation no serious donor would want to associate after learning the activities of team Mafisi. Anyway I am just a village boy hii ni maneno ya watu wa Nairobi.
Ngumu Derrick: I think the Rights and Freedom of Mafisi will be protected now. I also suggest a day to be set as Mafisi day. To honor and award Mafisi, also to Celebrate the fallen Mafisi.
Fayih Mawia: Kindly advise for a prudent name…we need to shake off these labels about boy child because they are hurting our boys.
Bidan Bidan: This is the first best way to deal with our threat sponsors. Sponsor now wait for our legal team to deal with you ruthlessly.
Peter Kamau Maru: can wait to see what started as a joke making real and meaningful impact in the society…bravo #TeamMafisi!
Joel Wanjiku: Tunafaa tupewe membership card mr chairman
Kibara Tony Gachoki: Best move to deal with sponsors..uwanja ulainishwe,mashimo yazibwe na wang’oe viziki
Solo Solo: Hahaha, Jaymo una ujinga.I thought the group is just for fun
Samuel Sammy: I am assuming this is just the usual joke.
