- Two children went viral after a video of them fighting over a pencil and rubber emerged on social media
- Many well-wishers helped the children and their family after a radio presenter shared pictures of the deplorable conditions the family was living in
- Two companies pledged to build the family a three-bedroomed house, which is now complete
- Deputy President William Ruto gifted the family a 500-chicken farm and an MP also gave the family a dairy cow
It has been blessings after blessings for the two Nyandarua children, Teresiah Nyakinyua and James Mwangi, who were captured fighting on how many pencils and rubbers they could buy.
The sibling duo became an internet sensation after their viral video emerged on social media, prompting many Kenyans of goodwill to come to their aid after a radio presenter, Muthee Kiengei, shared photos revealing the deplorable conditions the family of seven children and their parents were living in.
The latest blessing Nyakinyua and Mwangi brought to their family is a brand-new permanent house, which is now complete, and the once-poor family, who lived in a shanty made of mud, will no longer experience cold nights any more.
One of the philanthropists, Ndungu Nyoro, shared the photos of the breathtaking three-bedroomed house which Dhahabu Land Limited built for the family with the help of another business that donated iron sheeting.
The photos of the beautiful house wowed people all over Africa and many thanked God and those who made the dream come true.
The viral video on the argument
In the video that took social media by storm, the two kids could be heard arguing back and forth in the shop and the shop-keeper decided to record them as the altercations went overboard.
Nyakinyua was fighting her brother who wanted two pencils so each could get one. However, the young girl wanted a pencil and rubber.
