At one time, the guy did not have anything for lunch except avocadoes, and he thought of an idea that sparked their friendship and love.

"I asked her to give me posho (ugali) in exchange for my avocados. I told her that all I needed was something to eat at school. She was quick to buy the idea. That’s how we became friends," he said.

However, they did not have enough time to enjoy their newfound love as the lady's parents transferred her to another school, and they lost contacts.

In 2009, as fate would have it, they reconnected through a friend and soon after she was done with her university studies, they started a brand new relationship which led to their marriage in February 2021.
