So, when Rosemary Murithi's nephew Brian Mutugi lost his mother in 2005 at a tender age, a big chunk of his dreams wafted away into thin air.

"Fellow students thought he was homeless and it affected his self-esteem, that is what made me decide to build him a house," Rosemary told Briefly News' Hillary Lisimba.

About the house

Located in Tharaka Nithi county, Baruo Village, the house has one bedroom, a sitting room, bedroom, toilet and bathroom and a spacious kitchen.

So far, only the ceiling, front veranda and plumbing remain undone, but plans are underway to finish them then the young man will hustle on his own to expand it.

"I am proud of myself and the boy too as he has never let me down. When he is home he does all the house chores. He is so respectful," she explained, justifying why the young man merited the house.

Apart from the structure itself, Rosemary bought curtains, a two seater sofa, a gas cooker and a few items for the bedroom.
