Ezekiel Mutua builds costly home for parents after neighbours mocked them (Photos)

The neighbours said that they wouldn’t amount to anything as they were so poor.

And the state of affairs back then made his family the butt of all jokes in their neighbourhood as some said that ‘they wouldn’t amount to anything’

“So when I was a young boy (I think about 10 years) I overheard a neighbour gossip about my parents - how we were poor and how my father's household would never amount to anything. That time things were thick and my dad's compound was like a symbol of shame and want. There was nothing to call a home really although by the standards of the village that may not have been a big deal. But that comment by our neighbour really got me offended. It stuck in my mind and all through life as I grew up I prayed that God would help me reverse that curse. Years have gone by and a lot of water has gone under the bridge. By God’s grace, I have been able to reverse the words of the old village neighbour. My parents can enjoy a semblance of a decent home.”  He wrote while showcasing the compound of the home he built for his parents.

Medical centre

He also added that he would be building a chapel in his dad’s home, an old people’s home with a medical Centre and later build a school for children in his village.

“Once I complete settling them, I will grant their wish and build a chapel in my dad’s compound and an old people's home complete with a health facility for their medical care. I want to ensure that the aged in my village have a place they can enjoy peace of mind, have decent food and medical checkup. After that, I will build a nice kindergarten to give a decent academic start to children in my village. That dream is shaping up nicely within my dad’s compound, the very place that our neighbour thought would be desolate!” Wrote Mutua.
