Meet Kipchumba A Flamboyant Police Officer Who Imported Shoes Worth KSh 102k From Britain

Albert Kipchumba, a police officer, bought himself a pair of shoes for KSh 102,000 as a gift to make up for going barefoot on a school excursion.

The flashy police officer brought the KSh 102,000 sneaker from Britain.

In a social media post, the officer reflected on his time as a student at Stoughton Primary School in 1985.

Kipchumba, a nine-year-old boy, was eager to join the other students on the school tour, but he lacked the necessary footwear.

According to Kipchumba, he was the only student at the Nzoia Sugar Factory who did not wear shoes, and going barefoot was not frowned upon.

He made it through the Mumias Sugar Factory trip with his friends before rejoining his class for evening classes.

Following the expedition, the students became the talk of the school and village, but the group returned home.

"I imported a pair of shoes from the United Kingdom for Ksh 102,000 just to commemorate and celebrate the day I went on a school tour without shoes," he explained.

He claimed that because he was an orphan with no one to defend him, the family harassed him, forcing him to start living alone at the age of 14.
