Friday, June 26, 2020 – Deputy President William Ruto hosted Stephen Odhiambo, the Ngong Road based carpenter whose garden furniture design has wowed Kenyans at his Karen residence on Thursday.
Dr. Ruto was blown away by Odhiambo’s talent and boosted his business by splashing Sh150, 000 on five of them.
The garden benches go for Sh22, 000 but Odhiambo, who was accompanied by a friend, wanted to sell to the DP at Sh50, 000 each.
Ruto being the hustler numero uno, asked them to kata kitu kidogo and they agreed on Sh150, 000 for five benches.
The DP is to pay Sh100, 000 deposit and the balance after the work is completed.
“I will buy all the five seats for Ksh 120,000, isn’t that fair?” the DP is heard in the video.
In a video shared on his social media platforms, the DP hailed the duo’s creativity.
“Today I met Stephen Odhiambo and Dennis Otieno, two enterprising Kenyans with innovative ideas on garden furniture.
“I was humbled by their efforts and I pray to God through the Son of the Carpenter from Nazareth to bless the work of their hands.
“Their dreams are valid.
