However, there was this one Somali man Driving a truck who gave him an offer of being a herdboy in Mandera. With zero option he took the offer and boarded the truck until Nairobi. According to him, when they landed in Nairobi the driver opted to go and buy milk in a near shop along Jogoo road, and unfortunately, he was hit by another vehicle.
The young boy from Matungu was left in the street of Nairobi where he knew no one. By God’s grace, a well-wisher rescued him and this well-wisher was a prominent person in the government, JJ Kamotho. At the time Kamotho was serving as the minister of education and he offered to pay for his school fee.
