The 30th of November, 2018: NAIROBI, KENYA - Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua spent Sh50,000 at the new Green Park termini on Wednesday to support the inauguration of Hustlers Fund and purchase a shirt from a mtumba merchant.
Small business owners, such as smokie and sausage vendors and mitumba traders, discussed their struggles in the marketplace and how the Hustlers Fund may help them in an appearance hosted by comedian Chipukeezy.
Chipukeezy picked out one of the mitumba shirts and summoned DP Rigathi up to the podium to try it on; the vendor then offered to sell the shirt to Rigathi for Sh500.
Since Riggy G is a friend of mine, I'll sell him this shirt for Sh500 instead of the usual Sh1,000," the mitumba vendor explained.
As the crowd cheered, DP Gachagua quickly countered that he would buy it for Sh50,000.
The CEO of Safaricom, Peter Ndegwa, was also summoned to the podium to purchase a cigarette, but he forked over Sh200 (about $210).
