Comedian Chipukeezy has given his fans a status update on the story of the student who was filmed punch drunk in full school uniform.
The video went viral eliciting heated debate on the legality of sharing it on social media.
“A few months ago a video showing a 15-year-old girl clearly drunk went viral. When she was on the verge of running away from home because of the video, contemplating suicide etc I took it upon myself as a Nacada Director to reach out and offer help where I could,” Chipukeezy said.
Adding,” I promised to offer mentorship, ensure she completes her high school education, receive the much needed guidance and counseling.”
To follow-up on her progress, the comedian together with TV host Amina Abdi went to Karatina to visit her.
“I’m so happy to say she’s doing so much better. I reached out to my sister @aminaabdirabar who not only joined me and came all the way to Karatina BUT she even offered to pay one year of her high school. It inspired me to do the same,
I then called @officialjanetmbugua & @terryannechebet who both agreed to help and each paid fees for a year as well.”
The funnyman explained, “Kindly note that the reason I reached out was not to reward her for drinking, but give her the mentorship she requires and to highlight the much needed discussion on how alcohol is affecting our youth across the country. #LetsSaveOurYouthTogether.”
