The Nairobi county senator Johnson Sakaja met with the executive director of the program, Wawira Njiru as he followed up to see what it will take the program kick off in the county.
Sakaja Johnson: "No child should be deprived of education because of hunger. Held a follow-up meeting with Executive Director Wawira Njiru of Food for Education where we went through the finer details of her school feeding program and what it takes to scale it up throughout Nairobi. We can and must do this."
With these news via his Facebook post, here is how Kenyans reacted.

Njugus: "You guys just talk and go to your homes. Huku down mambo ni tofauti sana. Then badala masikini waangaliwe na school fees grant, wanapea MCAs budget ya magari."
Rop: "Blackmailing of the highest order, which Kenyans? Do you still remember a mother who was boiling stones for her children in Mombasa ama Mombasa si Kenya."
Omondi: "Hunger is a major crisis than covid-19. This a major priority ignored by many."
Toni: "Can you feed the whole country Mr senator? Provide parents with a favourable environment to hustle for the kids. Achana na drama mingi na mapicha. Kanjo Nairobi inasumbua watu sana na wewe kazi yako ni kuzunguka na kiti."
