A rare handshake and a run from the crowd to hand Sh20 to Deputy President William Ruto during a fundraiser has earned a five year-old boy Sh10,000.
Ruto recognised John Mbugua, a pre-unit school boy, last Friday as the bravest and most generous boy.
He sent Mbugua Sh10,000 and a framed photo of him and the boy through Kikuyu MP Kimani Ichung'wa.
The boy had donated Sh20 during the Kikuyu Education Fund harambee on November 17 last year.
Mbugua's mother, Jane Wangari, a farmer, said she has never made such an amount of money in her lifetime.
"I am very happy with the Deputy President and may God protect him. I will use the money to buy Mbugua a present to act as a reminder in his life or save it to pay for his school fees later," she said.
Ichung'wa presented the gifts at Karai village.
