Safaricom took the queue and followed it up, and presented him with two Samsung S8 phones; one for him and another for his wife while also gifting his daughter with a Tecno Camon smart phone as well as airtime all worth over Sh200,000.
Other companies have joined in with Bonfire Adventures presenting the idea of an all paid expenses trip for Kimotho to its followers on Twitter.
