In his reply, Ombachi acknowledged that he frequently receives similar offers, especially from supporters abroad.

However, he explained that, for now, he prefers to run the meal giveaways out of his own pocket, emphasising a lack of a formalized system for accountability.

He expressed a desire to maintain a personal connection to the process, reminiscent of the days when he cooked professionally, moving from house to house to cater for parties and events.

"I do get this a lot on a daily basis, especially from people abroad but as for now I don’t have the system in place, especially for the sake of accountability, so just running it out of pocket as it also feeds into my passion in that I miss cooking large quantities of food like the days I actually did it for a living moving from house to house cooking for people in parties and such," Ombachi shared.

He continued by highlighting the satisfaction he derives from being able to fulfil his inner child's joy while bringing smiles to those who benefit from his meal giveaways.

Despite the overwhelming generosity of his fans, Ombachi hinted at the potential for a change in approach, indicating that if such changes occur, a more structured system for accountability and monitoring contributions would need to be implemented.
