Ms Mukasia served a cup of tea to the DP and his delegation on Sunday after which she received the hefty tip.

"I saw the DP who was accompanied by Benjamin Washiali walk into my kiosk casually and took a seat at a table. He then waved at me as he requested to be served tea and chapati. His other friends ordered tea and mandazi.

"l will spare money to buy a cow and name it after the DP in remembrance of that day," she said in an interview with Daily Nation.

Familiar Face

Ms Mukasia related that she had initially feared that the DP and his people were plain-clothed police.

"One of them greeted me and I recalled having seen the face on TV several times. I then realised it was Mr Ruto and my heart started beating quickly since I did not know what he wanted. But as if he had read my mind, he told me not to worry and ordered for tea," she told reporters.

The woman recounted that she was excited during the brief encounter with President Uhuru Kenyatta's second-in-command that she did not keep track of how much the DP's convoy had consumed.

"I told him I had rented the place and paid Ksh5,000 monthly. He thanked me for the tea and good service and asked me how much was the bill.

"I told him I could not remember the exact since I was overwhelmed by the visit. I can't believe that I got the rare opportunity to serve the DP in a makeshift kiosk," she narrated.
