The young girl, in a recent media interview with the aforementioned news entity, disclosed she was very excited that she was going to be a homeowner at only six.
“My name is Ruby and I’m six years old and I’m about to buy my first house,” Ruby said.
According to the trio's father, Cam McLellan, who is a property investment expert, he helped his children throughout the homeownership process.
The dad revealed that his children contributed about KSh 600,000 (N2,183,343.65), money they had saved from their pocket money to make the purchase possible.

The house and land on which they built the house are located at Clyde in Melbourne’s southeast and cost KSh 67.1 million (N244,257,066.99).
