    Robai, on Thursday, November 10, landed an ambassadorial job and a tour outside Kenya to invigorate her. 

    Speaking to Kenyans.co.ke on Thursday, November 10, Expeditions Maasai Safaris CEO, Pancras Karema, confirmed that the travel company inked a deal with the Kenya Medical Training College (KMTC) student to serve as the company's ambassador for one year.

    The Chief Executive further noted that for selflessness, Robai was rewarded with an all-expenses four-day paid trip to Zanzibar.

    "She will also be flown to Zanzibar for four days with all expenses paid. It is our highest package," he added.

    In an earlier interview with Kenyans.co.ke, Robai noted that the clip was recorded at the Kitale County Referral hospital while she was on duty. 

    "The patient was admitted with a fracture on his leg and seemed timid. I played the music from my phone and started dancing, which livened him up. 

    "As a nurse, I felt obliged to ensure that my patients are okay," she explained.
