Churchill has gone and made someone’s day, no sorry, year. The comedian who is one of the most well-known in Kenya also showed that he has a generous side.
Who was he being generous with? The matatu conductor that we wrote about who returned 30 thousand shillings to a customer who had lost it.
Churchill wanted to show that no good deed should go unpunished and he did so with a gift of his own to the conductor. He promised to take Mwaura to college. Mwaura explained:
“Churchill said he will pay for my studies and so I will go to and check the availability of a part-time IT course. I intend to register and begin studying as soon as I confirm the course’s availability.”
The conductor was in second year pursuing an IT course at Kenya Polytechnic when he dropped out in 2011 due to a lack of fees. Mwaura will now resume his studies at the same institution that is now known as Technical University of Kenya.
This adds to the blessing the conductor had already received as he has since received money from well-wishers and a free delivery package for his 34 weeks pregnant wife at Nairobi Hospital.
Churchill isn’t the only good Samaritan in this country with a lot of money. Joe Kariuki, the former Candy and Candy Record label boss, paid school fees for Morris Mwenda and 6 other children who were not in school (from Homeless Children’s Home).
He is the chokora who shot to fame barely 48 hours after a video of him speaking fluent English asking the Kenyan government to give street children an opportunity to prove their worth, went viral.
The kids have now joined Highridge Primary School where Joe Kariuki will cater for their fees and other basic needs.
