  • Former Kameme TV presenter, Ngugi Karanja, has rallied Kenyans to construct a house for a homeless street family residing in Murang'a county.

    The family, popularly known in their neighbourhood as Kandundu Kids, consists of five young children who fend for themselves in order to make ends meet. 

    Mwangi Kandundu, the eldest of the five, acts as the parent by doing menial jobs in order to put food on the table- which has proved to be a tough predicament for the 16-year-old.

    Karanja, through his Youtube channel Ngugi wa Karanja Mcee TV, highlighted their plight which caught the attention of well wishers who opted to assist the family.

    Various Kenyans of goodwill pledged to assist the Kandundu kids in order to transform their lives and put a roof over their heads. Karanja announced that they had begun the process of constructing a four-bedroomed house for the Kandundu kids.

    Speaking while at the site, he affirmed that local companies also chipped in to assist with either house materials or ensure adequate supply of water. 

    He assured all those who had contributed towards the project, would ultimately see the house come to fruition. 

    "I assure all Kenyans of goodwill, we can promise you that all the resources are going to be directed to this project," he stated.

    A local who spoke to the journalist, affirmed that the children's mother had fallen into alcoholism but was on the path to recovery. He also lauded the well wishers who had pledged to pay the kids' school fees for them to continue with their education.

    Karanja affirmed that he would unveil the house as soon as the project is completed and invite all stakeholders to take part in the opening ceremony. 

    The kind act displayed by the journalist is among the projects that show how Kenyans can rally up and contribute towards a good cause. 

    Recently, the KBC fraternity built a four-bedroomed house for a poor granny living in Narok county.  The journalists graced the ribbon cutting ceremony as they provided other amenities for the poor granny and her eight grandkids.
