The Kandeh Kolleh Yumkella (KKY) Movement has on behalf of Dr. Kandeh Yumkella presented food items worth millions of Leones to students of the Njala University at the auditorium hall in Mokondi campus, Njala, Bo District over the weekend.

In his presentation, National Coordinator of Students Wing FBC, Moses E.N. Sesay said the donation is part of Dr Yumkella‘s support towards the students in the ongoing Ebola fight in the country especially students residing in the campus from Kenema and Kailahun respectively.

The items include twenty bags of rice, ten gallons of cooking oil, one bag of sugar, cartons of tin tomatoes, bags of onions, bundles of plastic water, a bag of salt and cash of one million Leones.

He stressed that Njala is at the bottom of his heart and he always think of the university because the college made him what he is today.

The Coordinator of students called on his colleague students not to forget that the future of this nation lies in their hands and they should make the right choice when the time comes by choosing Dr Yumkella as their next president of this nation.

Chancellor of the Njala University, Professor Alhaji Abu Sesay gave a brief background of Dr. Yumkella and Professor Monty Jones recalling that they were in class and both of them were very respectful  especially Yumkella.

“I am not even closer to his achievement in the world,” he said.
