We saw this coming, didn't we?
There is one swahili saying that goes: "Aliye Juu Mngojee Chini".
I wonder how far greed, poor planning and cheap pride can take one man.

In this case no one should be suprised at all the fact that you CAN NOT TRANSFER YOUR CREDIT ANYWHERE ELSE, Should have been a red light right there. You should have all seen this coming.$20,000, is a whole lot of money for courses you can transfer anywhere else. I asked myself over and over again why people were going to this school to throw their money in the drain.
Good Luck everyone.

It has been a tough time economically for many. We have seen people loosing their homes. In matter of fact to run a business you need business education and experience as it is in all fields of life. To enrole in a school consider its advantages, disadvantages and even benefits. I would rather be on a waiting list of middlesex college and sure of a destiny.

judy can you even say anything and the way you used to give us stress at milford you worked hard in doing nothing. im not amazed at that but i feel bad for the students

As a graduate of a local School of Practical Nursing, I can say that you don't think that way. You feel so relieved to be accepted into the program, and NEVER expect it will be shut down. As for transferring credits, it does not work that way with a nursing school. It is not a degree program.
I give my best wishes to these students who are experiencing a letdown that we can only imagine. I hope something is worked out. We need more LPN's.

With profound respect tp all contributors herein, even those with grammatical errors, I urge that we refrain from personal attacks, but rather adress the issue at hand.
We have seen how one man's error in judgement coupled with greed has broken these many dreams. Never in recent local history has one person failed so many!
However, the failure of Holden should present us with lessons to learn. The seemingly cheapest and easiest way is NOT always the best way in advancing our hopes and achieving our life's ultimate aims. I hope the Board of Directors if there was any will work with the affected students to reimburse them for their financial losses and even their pain and suffering.
On a last note: I wonder who had advised Mr Saroni that he could sell his failing company to himself. This is a nation of laws where the Sherman anti - trust act of 1890 was enacted with people like him in mind.

Say all you want kenyans but we should learn not to worship those that seems or pretend to have money.That was the bait and you all fell for it. As for your money , Saroni OPENLY told you Kenyans in one of the meetings that he has shifting his operations to Kenya. He went ahead and bought construction machinery with your money for his start up construction company in Kenya -RIM construction. He got a sweet deal-of course through his corrupt means to pave a stretch at Jomo Kenyatta Airport for about 60 million. Now who is laughing.

Are you serious Mkenyahalisi? That sounds like a fraud? Oh poor ones who fell for the bait. But definitely and fairly those who have not completed the course need to their money back.

correction: But definitely and fairly those who have not completed the course need to get their money back.

It's very unfortunate that this had to happen,
Mostly unfortunate for the Students who have
sacrificed alot of time and money, some of them borrowed
Loans to pay for the nursing course.
Not so unfortunate to the owners because
It was Bound to happen and am sure deep
inside they also saw it coming.
Which we can all learn from their Mistake
and Poor bussiness manangement.
I think people forget that to run any kind of
bussiness in this country you need to learn and
take some courses on bussiness management.
There are rules and regulations that can not
be ignored. The smallest thing you ignore
WILL COST YOU.
ONE of the biggest Mistake they made was to
go and buy a million dollar house, not that
there is anything wrong with that.
BUt You just can't wake up and do those kind of
things, WHile YOUR bussiness is standing on a
poor FOUNDATION AND REALLY POOR Manangement.
I very much Believe that this whole mess
could have been avoided. If they stopped
for one second and get advice from experts
on how to run a bussiness especially a school.
But we all know that to them this was a
way of making easy money without doing over
times and doubles.
Well, as someone once said "YAKI MWAGIKA HAYA ZOLEKI".
GOOD LUCK TO THEM AND ESPECIALLY STUDENTS.

one more thing.
TO TOP IT OFF THIS BUSSINESS HAD ONLY
BEEN AROUND FOR A FEW YRS, FOR THEM TO LIVE SO LARGE.

Mr Wilfred Saroni is a pundit & just it be known,most of us have been waiting for this with unabated breath for a long time. Yes indeed! pride does come a haughty fall.
I feel the pain of all students or to-be students who are indeed victims of greed. Beyond that,y'all know that Saroni's 15 minutes of fame is up. Thank God.
The end of an era indeed...The eg-maniac gets to realize that the world has a population of more than one (not just you Saroni).
In a nutshell,for someone who embodied the worst elements a human being can possess,i am popping some champagne tonight & the rest of the year will be serious jubilation.

stop celebrating someones downfall. It doen't matter if he was arrogant. There must be some people he helped around the way.
#17 May 5, 2008
most of yopu are loosers who has ever helped so many people achieve their goals than saroni. he is a good men and he was taking a risk just like we do in our daily lifes i know he will bounce back and good luck mr saroni
#18 May 6, 2008
Right, but you don't take people's money and live large on it. That is a bad risk. Those people had trusted him for good management and success, but he let the students down by being selfish and taking comfort on their money. I hope when he bounces back he has learnt how to do things.

Whatever goes around comes around...come on people,you know this guy was an arrogant hooligan who deserves this.
The victims will always be the students,the Saruni's family has terrorised Kenyans in MA for a long time. I agree with Mugikuyu,we need to celebrate this.
