Jafar Isaack, who had declared his interest in running for president but later stepped down, launched a charity walk called the 'Walk of My Life' at the Serena Hotel in Nairobi last Friday evening. The 40-year-old former soldier will walk from Mombasa to Moyale, a distance of 1,500km.
Jafar said the aim of the charity walk is to let well-off Kenyans understand the poor living conditions of the ordinary citizens.
Jafar was born in Moyale. He later relocated to the UK where he lived for 12 years.
Chief Justice Dr Willy Mutunga, who was the guest of honour, said some people still cannot access justice and urged Kenyans to try and solve their cases outside court since it is a long and expensive process.
In attendance were Vision 2030 Director General Mugo Kibati, Northern Kenya Minister Mohammed Elmi, chairman of The Judges and Magistrates Vetting Board Sharad Rao and former Rangwe MP Dr Shem Ochuodho.
