“My message to leaders is simple, please help, join hands and raise funds to complete stalled Kabarnet stadium it should be world class,” Chebii said.
He has asserted that he will not board nor ride.
“I will not board any vehicle or accept a ride from a good Samaritan. Despite my old age I will just be walking along the tarmac road until I reach my destination, Nairobi,” he vowed.
“It is so shameful seeing young youth going to train in Nakuru and Uasin Gishu counties when we can have our own facilities,” he stated.
He said that he won’t mind if someone offers him food and pay for lodging expenses along the way.
