During an Interactive session at the official opening of the M-Pesa Foundation Academy in Thika, where the Head of State was the Cheief guest, Joyce Nyawira (a student at the Academy) asked him what he hopes to be remembered for after he leaves office in 2022.

“What do you hope to be remembered for after you leave office in 2022”, asked Joyce Nyawira.

"I hope many things but one is that I will leave a cohesive country and two, that we shall have won the war on corruption," said Kenyatta.

The President added that the academy was a good example of what collaboration between the private and public sectors can do.

"This financial year we shall be spending Sh430 billion on education. We also intend to build more facilities to make education affordable and accessible to all," said Kenyatta.

The Academy was started in 2015 and it's managed by the M-Pesa Foundation and currently they has more than 500 students from all over the country using a unique Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) model that encompasses leadership and entrepreneurship in its curriculum.
