On Arriva in Nairobi, Merle and Eric were invited for a dinner and meeting at the Deputy President’s official residence.

Hon. Ruto has a passion for table banking that was first implemented in Kenya in his constituency.  He also announced to us that the government is committing $4 million this year and $4 million next year to building a vocational school on the 80 acres that was donated to ABW near the Ringa School for this purpose. He asked three MP’s from that area to work on it starting next week.
