A man from Homabay County has gone to higher levels in appreciating President Uhuru Kenyatta and his family.
Eric Oluoch Odongo, who works as a mechanic in Nairobi has spent over KSh 1 Million to buy gifts and make artistic products for President Uhuru Kenyatta and his family.
According to the man who resides in Mathare, he is awaiting the opportune moment to present the special gifts to the first family.
In an interview on Bonga na Jalas, Eric listed the gifts that are awaiting President Uhuru Kenyatta.
“I have a live bull, a billy goat, elephant art carved from an ebon tree this can last more than 200 years to come. I also have two granite stones which I engraved, a black galaxy, and white pure granite,” he said.
Other than the Head of State, the man also has gifts lined up for the first lady, Margaret Kenyatta.
“I have a handbag with two lesos inside, for the First Lady,” he said.
The Homa Bay man said he also has gifts for the President’s mum, Mama Ngina Kenyatta.
“For Mama Ngina Kenyatta, my grandmother, I have a handbag with two lesos inside, and a Luo traditional basket, a bigger one and a small one.”
According to the artisan, he does not mind digging deep inside his pocket to appreciate the First family because of the love he has for President Uhuru Kenyatta.
“It has cost me above KSh 1 Million. I don’t value the money I spent to give my president a gift,” he claimed.
Eric was impressed with the development projects the Jubilee government has set up in the Nyanza region.
“The President himself has touched my heart, and I was satisfied with the government of Jubilee. When the president officially opened the Mbita-Rusinga crossway bridge, that really touched my heart,” he said.
The Homabay resident appealed the to the president and first family to receive his gifts.
