Nothing beats the feeling of extending gifts to your parents, especially if you grew up with literally nothing.
This was the case of a Kenyan female petroleum engineer after she decided to gift her parents a luxurious house in Eldoret, Uasin Gishu county.
Michelle Boit, who is in her early 40s, took to social media to celebrate her parents for her upbringing.
The engineer who studied in the United States said she was motivated to build her parents a four-bedroom house after observing most of her friend's parents were suffering as their children live large in the foreign nation.
She had been working with Tullow Oil in Kenya before she moved to a Chad-based oil company with offices in Nairobi.
"I have seen many of my friends in diaspora living large but the parents are suffering and living in deplorable condition. And as a way of saying thanks to my mother, I built them a house to motivate others to do the same also," she said.
The ceremony was attended by family members and a priest who presided over the handing over ceremony before sprinkling holy water in the house as a sign of blessings.
