Kenya: Jubilee Riders Make It to Cape Town

On December 12, 2013, President Uhuru Kenyatta flagged off 15 cyclists in the Jubilee Ride to Cape Town South Africa initiative as part of the Kenya@50 celebrations.

The riders planned to raise Sh15 million to sponsor 50 needy Kenyan students through high school under the Jubilee Scholarship Programme, a social justice initiative of The Nairobi Chapel.

The cyclists arrived in Cape Town last Friday after a gruelling 7,500km journey through Tanzania, Malawi, Mozambique, Swaziland and South Africa.

The team includes Sarah Mwangi-Githinji, Nick Korir, Jason Runo, Faith Mamicha, Danson Mutunga, Nick Kiplagat, George Mwongela and Exloosive CEO Moses Nderitu. The riders will be returning to Nairobi in a few weeks to celebrate their achievement.
