61-Year-Old Man Walks 350km To Meet President Uhuru Kenyatta
A former Kenyan chief reportedly walked 350km to Nairobi, to meet the president over stalled stadium project.
61-year-old Joseph Chebii walked 350km that is approximately 217 miles to Nairobi so that he could appeal to President Uhuru Kenyatta to finish building work on a stadium in his home region that stalled years ago.
He began his journey on 26 August at his home in Baringo county, Western Kenya.
BBC News reports that Chebii braved sunny weather in Baringo and Nakuru counties to cold weather in Limuru and Nairobi just so he could appeal to the President.
Police officers stationed at roadblocks along the highway offered him lunches and encouragement until he reached his destination.
He allegedly wore out two pairs of his shoes during his journey.
Meanwhile, Chebii who is yet to secure an appointment with President Uhuru Kenyatta said he is optimistic the president will agree to meet him. He hopes his journey won’t be in vain.
