He has also promised to give the teachers in the institution Sh100,000.

“Can I plan a small party? After you are through with your exams, I will give the head teacher Sh300,000 so that after the exams you can come and have a party,” he said.

“I will give Sh100,000 for the teachers too. So that they can also enjoy themselves,” he added.
