He’s also quoted as saying police officers stationed in roadblocks along the highway offered him lunches and encouragement.

Mr Chebii braved sunny weather in Baringo and Nakuru counties to cold weather in Limuru and Nairobi.

He says he is optimistic the president will agree to meet him, though he hasn’t secured an appointment.
