Seasoned Citizen TV news anchor Jeff Koinange has come to the aid three young boys who became internet celebrities after a video of them dancing went viral.
Jeff told Kenyans.co.ke on January 10, that the trio, made up of Kevin Lekimariki, Adrea Lenapir and Lepasiron Lakachuma, had been enrolled into a boarding school in Nyahururu courtesy of contributions from Kenyans.
He thanked the people who had sacrificed their hard-earned cash to change the lives of the three boys.
Jeff intimated that the boys had joined Little Lambs Academy in Nyahururu, Laikipia County.
"Transport, uniforms were mainly paid for by Kenyans and other well-wishers through the pay bill we set up in December where we raised more than Ksh 150,000," Jeff stated.
He added that they had handed the responsibility back to the boys' guardian and anyone who wanted to contribute could use the number, 0710727205.
"His name is Lemeiguran and he lives in Marigat Baringo County," Jeff told our newsdesk.
On December 24, Jeff accompanied by fellow anchor Rashid Abdallah and Hot 96 FM co-host Professor Hamo visited Marigat to deliver Christmas presents for the boys.
During the visit, the Royal Media trio was given a heroic welcome by the residents who had gathered to witness.
Jeff, Hamo and Abdallah joined the boys in performing their now-famous dance before opening the gifts.
Royal Media Services, in conjunction with other companies, presented free shoes for the entire class that the trio attended in Marigat and free food hampers for the community.
During the visit, they also learnt that one of the boys, Andrea, was actually an orphan and lived with his ageing grandmother who expressed her joy upon receiving the gifts.
Leparioson's father was confined to a wheelchair after suffering from polio when he was a young boy.
Kevin Lekimariki's father was getting married on the day the journalists arrived and had to abandon the ceremony to meet them, with his newly wedded wife in tow.,
