Raila Odinga Paid my Air Ticket to USA, CNN Hero Nelly Cheboi Revealed, See The Amount He gave her

Raila Odinga is a good man; he gave me Kshs. 300,000 for my air ticket to America when nobody else was willing to do so.

In an interview with Success Afrika this year, Nelly Cheboi recounted the events that followed her scholarship award to study in America. So much was required of her, but all she had was faith in herself.

"I got a scholarship to study in America; I was supposed to report in two weeks. I didn't even have a passport. "Mimi ni Nelly, nilienda Maryhill girls, nilipata A, nimepata scholarship ya America na sina hata passport," I said as I returned to the streets."The MP heard about it, he made plans, and I got a passport in two days."

The next task was to obtain a Visa and an airline ticket.She returned to the streets, being the determined individual that she is.

"Mimi ni Nelly, Nilipata A, Naenda America, Niko na Passport, Nafaa Kureport in Two Weeks, Sina Hata Air Ticket."

She kept saying it until she met Raila Odinga, who gave her Kshs. 300,000, which enabled her to fly.

If it were not for him (Raila Odinga), I could still be rotting in Mogotio. I am dedicating my CNN Heroes win to HE. Raila Odinga.

Nelly is the CNN Hero of the Year 2022 and has earned it with her work in Mogotio through TechLit Africa.

"For me, it was like: move my family out of poverty, move my community out of poverty, and rewrite what it looks like to grow up in Mogotio." "Bring all the opportunities to Mogotio," She said in the interview.
