This past weekend, Akothee was invited to speak to a group of high school girls.
She forwarded the invitation, indicating that the school contacted her because her company, Akothee Foundation, could reach out to other like-minded businesses to support the effort.
Senior Principal Hellen Juma created the invitation. However, the invitation was cancelled, and she was contacted about it.
The entrepreneur was scheduled to speak at Ngiya Girls High School during a talent event for the pupils. Akothee was the first speaker to address the girls following the start of charity activities.
The cancellation was caused by complaints from parents and alumni who believed she did not fit the speaker profile.
Akothee graciously accepted the cancellation. Well, sort of. She began by thanking the school for considering her as a mentor.
“Thank you very much, Madam Helen, may The almighty bless your heart. I met you in Sinyolo Girls and you stole my heart with your kindness, you made my work of admitting the less fortunate easy, even though I was late 🙏thank you very much for helping me support the vulnerable, you saw it fit to help you walk the journey of the underprivileged, but there is a way the universe works for us.”
Then Akothee responded by saying how this would capture national attention
“Ngiya Girls High School is now on the map, known globally, even those who didn’t know Ngiya Girls, Now they know 🤣🤣, I pray that your new development of having a foundation within the school will uplift a lot of souls. 💪I really appreciate the love and faith you have for me🙏. I will still support any course that will leave a positive impact on our society. I will still support where I can even from where I am standing. May God bless you.”
She also called out the person she thought was behind it
“To the Arch Bishop, I understand where you are coming from, continue praying for us sinners ,so we could all meet in heaven on that day 🙏i. In Jesus’ name Amen 🙏”
