However, out of curiosity, Ndegwa said he approached his fellow rider to borrow his phone so that he could dial his number.

"I reached a boda boda guy and narrated to him my story so that he can help me with a phone. He told me about having lost so many phones and that's why almost all of them have mulika mwizis," said Ndegwa.

Small token

Ndegwa said he found the man patiently for him at a designated place they had agreed to meet.

The rider said the humble man asked for a small token as he was broke and had nothing for Christmas.

On questioning how much, Ndengwa said he was surprised that the man only asked for KSh 400 (N1,453.72).

"In short, I gave the man KSh 1000 (N3,634.29) and I still feel like it was not enough appreciation. This guy is one in a million," said Ndegwa.
