Kimoso Sub Location retired Assistant Chief Joseph Malalit who has been walking from Baringo County to Nairobi in pursuit of completion of Kabarnet Stadium is expected to arrive at State House, Nairobi today.
Malalit began his mission August 26 and he had covered more than 300 kilometers as per yesterday.
The 61 year old man noted that he does not have an appointment with the president but he hopes that President Uhuru Kenyatta is going to receive him at the State House.
“I do not have an appointment with the president but I hope he is going to receive me at the State House and listen to me.” He said.
Though he is not sure of how much money he intends to raise for the completion of Kabarnet stadium, Malalit is very sure of his dream seeing youths in the County nurture their talents in the stadium, instead of engaging in drug abuse.
He also intend to meet Safaricom Chief Executive Officer Peter Ndegwa to see if the company could chip in supporting the initiative.
Malatiti cited that his journey has been challenging following the changing weather patterns.
“Baringo and Nakuru Counties were sunny, and when I arrived in Limuru, it was cold,” he said.
He added that he bought three pairs of shoes on his way and two pairs were worn out by the time he arrived in Nakuru.
“I met people who stopped me and wondered what I was up to and they also supported me.” He narrated.
He said that police on various roadblock were kind enough and offered him lunch and kept encouraging him to continue with his mission.
Malatit prays that his dream to have the stadium completed will be realized.
