A University of Nairobi (UoN) first year student on Wednesday shocked many after he reported for his first day at the institution of higher learning with a bicycle.
The student, admitted to the Kikuyu campus, was in the company of his parents. His father is seen help him push the bicycle as the mother follows close behind with a bag.
Impressed by the young lad, KoT said:
This young man in a few years is expected to change the lives of his parents for the better.

May God guide him and bless his parents, some parents don't even care whether you are in school or not or who paid ur highschool fees, they only care about side dishes n alcohol

In 2017, a 24 year old John Mwirigi who campaigned on his bicycle became Igembe South MP after trouncing Jubilee’s Joseph Miriti.
Mwirigi then still a student at Mount Kenya University (MKU) became the youngest member of parliament without the flashy lifestyle but a dream and goal to serve the people.
“We decided to elect him. He had no money for campaigns but he offered good pledges and his manifesto was good,” a resident said.
