It has been blessings after blessings for the two Nyandarua children, Teresiah Nyakinyua and James Mwangi, who were captured fighting on how many pencils and rubber they should buy.
The sibling duo became an internet sensation after their viral video emerged on social media, prompting many Kenyans of goodwill to come to their aid. This happened after a radio presenter, Muthee Kiengei, shared photos revealing the deplorable conditions the family of seven children and their parents were living in.
The latest blessing Nyakinyua and Mwangi brought to their family is a brand new permanent house which is now complete and the once-poor family who lived in a shanty made of mud will no longer experience cold nights.
One of the philanthropist Ndungu Nyoro shared the photos of the breathtaking three-bedroomed house which Dhahabu Land Limited built for the family with the help of Ruiru Mabati Factory which had pledged to provide iron sheets worth KSh 50,000 (N178,491.85).
The photos of the beautiful house wowed Kenyans and many thanked God and Kenyans at large who made the dream come true.
A little over two weeks ago, Kikuyu Town MP Kimani Ichung'wa gifted the family a dairy cow worth KSh 100,000 (N356,983.70). Deputy President William Ruto also gave the family a-500 chicken farm on Sunday, August 13.
"To ensure that they have a stable foundation to make their dreams come true, I have assigned my farm manager to personally ensure their parents establish a fully-funded 500-chicken farm," Ruto said.
The viral video on the argument
In the video that took social media by storm, the two kids could be heard arguing back and forth in the shop and the shop keeper decided to record them as the altercations went overboard.
Nyakinyua was fighting her brother who wanted two pencils so each could get one. However, the young girl wanted a pencil and rubber.
After the video went viral a number of Kenyans requested for their search and after a day the duo was located at Nyandarua county.
