KWS ranger melts hearts after carrying disabled girl up a hill for this view – PHOTOS

A Kenya Wildlife Services (KWS) ranger is the darling of social media after carrying a disabled schoolgirl up a hill for a view of Chania falls at the Aberdare National park.

Ranger Philip Wesa got touched after getting word from his colleagues of the girl who could not climb the hill because she is disabled.

Deborah Nyaboke from Joyland Special School in Kisumu had been left behind in the school bus by her schoolmates who went to view the waterfall.

Mr Wesa, upon getting the news, went to the school bus and carried the Form two pupil on his back.

The two ascended the hill with the help of other KWS rangers, all in a noble effort for the girl to get a magnificent view of the waterfall.


The overjoyed Nyaboke later joined her colleagues at the park, her dream was realized.

KWS congratulated Mr Wesa by tweeting; “Join us in honoring our @kwskenya selfless ranger Mr. Philip Wesa who went out of his way and hoisted a student from Joyland special school -Kisumu on his back to catch a glimpse of the magnificent Chania falls.”


Cabinet Secretary for Tourism and Wildlife Najib Balala also congratulated him by posting; “Am proud of Mr Wesa and caring at KWS has no limits. Keep it up.”

Other Kenyans also joined and congratulated the ranger for his selfless act.
