According to The Citizen TV, Morris Mwenda as a result of his speech was invited by Kenya’s Chief Justice, Dr. Willy Mutunga to be an intern at the Supreme Court during his school holidays.

When Mwenda met with Mutunga he was offered a copy of the Constitution of Kenya and is expected to proudly read it to the other boys back at the home as a way to pay it forward, said Homeless of Nairobi via a Facebook post.

They are an online story telling platform that attempts to breach the divide between the masses and the homeless.

A video they posted of the teenager went viral after he spoke about the plight of the homeless.

“My message to the public is that in the streets we have talented people, and we have those who have knowledge, but what they are lacking is something called opportunity,” said Mwenda in the video.

“Opportunity is an English word that simply means chance. So, they are lacking that chance…” Morris said.
