Uhuru surprises high school students with Sh300k ‘supper’ – PHOTOS

It was a pleasant surprise for students of St Monica Chakol Girls High School in Teso South Constituency after President Uhuru Kenyatta handed them Sh300,000 for “supper”.

The president was in Adungosi in Busia County to pitch for his re-election alongside his deputy William Ruto ahead of August 8 General Election.

After selling his key points to residents, President Kenyatta headed to the Girls school where his two helicopters had landed and surprised the school with the extraordinary gift.

The school is approximately 100 metres from Adungosi shopping centre where he held a public rally.

Kwa sababu mmekubali sisi kutumia uwanja wenu, supper yenu leo iko kwa mfuko yangu. Nawapatia Sh300,000,” he said sending the students into songs and dance.

“Igwee…,igwee….igwee,” they cheered as the president bid them goodbye.


During his brief address, he also promised the school a dormitory and a brand new school bus following area MP Mary Emaase’s request.

Earlier, more than 100 women had benefitted from Jubilee branded lesos from the president’s aides.

At the shopping centre, President Kenyatta admitted to be former President Daniel Moi’s political orphan.

“I agree, I’m Moi’s orphan because he introduced me to politics, but our opponents are Kanu orphans because they have been in government for a combined 40 years,” he said.

In reference to the bible, the head of state asked residents to “go out and multiply” since the government from January 2018 will waiver school fees in all secondary schools.

Mtoto wako tumekusomeshea kutoka Standard one hadi Form Four…wewe kazi umebaki nayo ni kuzaa na kulea.” he said amid ululation from the crowd.
