Nairobi Governor Johnson Sakaja has broken his silence over the school feeding program allegation that it has failed to take off despite government promise.
Taking on social media, the Governor noted that the program is ongoing and that 80,000 students are enjoying meals at Ksh 5 as promised with the second phase of the program set to take place.
“A few people are against our feeding program for nefarious reasons. Resorting to propaganda won’t work. Using children for politics won’t work. The first phase of schools onboarded have been getting their hot meals daily and on time.

All head teachers have communication to continue with their arrangements until the county communicates once the next phase begins. Already 80,000 children are enjoying meals at 5bob on the phased implementation.” said Sakaja
The governor was speaking in regard to allegations that students stayed hungry on Monday after the county failed to deliver on their promise even after the parents paid the said amount.
Sakaja is currently facing allegations of graft from his political opponents claiming that he has succeeded in the vice thanks to dubious tenders.
