Chipukeezy has started off the year putting in a lot of effort in his job.
Last year he was appointed as a NACADA director and many people took his job as a joke because well, he is a comedian so they did not expect much from him.
Yesterday, 5th January, he proved people wrong once again.
As schools were opening last week, one student Nyaguthie was enjoying a drink and on her way to school, she was spotted visibly drunk.
A video of her went viral and it broke the hearts of many parents. She was drunk but worst of all, she said she was just following her mother footsteps.
if mum comes home drunk, then why shouldn’t i be drunk?
Chipukeezy later sent an appeal saying he wants to meet the girl and make sure she is placed under a mentorship programme that will help her recover from alcoholism and any other problems she might be facing.
He found her at her home in Nyeri and talked things through with her and her parents. He took a picture with Nyaguthie and captioned:
Today, I started a journey of mentorship. This girl Nyaguthie is only 15 years old and in form 2. We made her video viral, she had an inside cry for mentorship and as a Director of Nacada, I drove to Nyeri and met her family.
Chipukezzy continued with his plans for her saying:
She is a great soul. She knows what she wants from life. She knows that she must face some form of punishment for what she did. At home she already has and at school, she will go through the disciplinary actions.
The guidance and counseling department at school will play their part.
However, as a young person and a Director of Nacada, I have offered my hand to show her the reward of hard work, the benefits of being in charge of her destiny and the value of being sober while crafting and reaching out for her dreams.
According to Chipukeezy, punishment is not the only solutions. He also announced that they have agreed on a reward plan:
My mentorship plan will be to encourage her to concentrate on her studies and reward each target we have agreed on. I will also support her talent too.
I will not do it alone. If you have an idea or you are involved in an inspirational programme drop me a comment or a message and I will contact you.
He concluded saying:
‘That is why I hold this job, to reach out to many hearts, provide hope, stretch my hand to as many people as I can and to leave a cheer of inspired people. So help me God.
Through her singular journey of mentorship, we will begin a movement that will reach to many other kids of her generation.
We must start. Instead of sitting back and criticizing, rise up and be counted for being part of something.
God Bless You all’
All we can hope is he will not stop at this and will help the girl until she has fully recovered.
