The legislator added that “getting 384 marks with an environment like that of Ol Moran is a big achievement.
Security, food problem, name them and you get these marks shows she is a brilliant girl.”

This comes shortly after flamboyant lawyer Ahmednasir Abdullahi is planning to give a Nairobi-based watchman KSh 1M to help him and his wife start a business.
In an update on Twitter, the lawyer said he was touched by the fact that the middle-aged man walks 15 kilometres to and from work to catch a paltry Ksh. 12,000-a-month pay check which is barely enough for his wife and two kids.
Now, the lawyer, with the help of his friends and clients has decided to change the guard’s life, saying they will give the man and his wife a KSh.1M business capital to jump-start their lives.
“To pleasantly surprise him and his wife when they come to see me on 15th…from my clients, friends and myself I will give him and his wife Kshs 1 million to start some small Biashara…I know we have millions like him but who said Allah can’t help his servant thru another one?” He added.
