A group of dancers from Kajiado had a bad day and had to spend their night in a police cell after their event organizer failed to properly arrange for their transport back from an event where they entertained guests.
The 16 dancers comprising of 14 women and two men said that they had been invited on Wednesday to perform in an adults education forum by Kajiado County’s First Lady Edna Lenku. She however failed to arrange for their transport back home.
One of the dancers said that the First Lady told them to hire a vehicle to the event and they did so. They told the driver he would be paid on reaching the event. However, they didn’t know a disappointment awaited them when the First Lady told them, “I have been told by the PA that the vehicle you used belonged to the county, so the staff has been asked by Lenku to give you money for lunch instead of bus fare.”
An elder member of the dance group said that their attempts to reach to Mrs. Lenku turned futile and the driver decided to drive the group to the police station for a solution to their predicament. Sources reveal that it was only through the intervention of a former MCA and good samaritans that the group got bus fare back home.
