Nyandarua Man Writes President Uhuru a Cheque

A businessman from Ol Kalou in nyandarua county has shocked Kenyans after writing President Uhuru Kenyatta a cheque.

David Ndung'u, middle-aged donated sh.10,500 to the COVID-19 management kitty.

Ndung'u who owns an electronic shop chose an unusual way of contributing in the fight against novel coronavirus by writing the president a check.

Since he doesn't know the president's account number he chose to scribble the name of the President in the bearers cheque.

according to Quora, a bearers cheque is a cheque that is payable to any person who presents it for payment at the bank counter.

The cheque drawn at Family bank was dated 3rd April 2020.

He told journalists that his wish was that president Uhuru receives the cheque so that it can help in the fight against coronavirus.

"My utmost wish is that the President receives the cheque and channels it to the COVID-19 management fund.," he said.

He observed that his actions were inspired by the desire to help the government combat the deadly virus.

He said that Kenyans should not always wait for the government to help in such situations but should help where they can.

"My thinking is, we shouldn’t always wait for the Government to help; where we, as citizens, can chip in,” Ndung'u told the press.

He disclosed that he settled on the amount after calculating foodstuffs that are needed by an average family in a month.

Now the big question is, will he be able to give the President the cheque? Time will tell.
