By the time he realised the change was excess, the bus sped, forcing him to keep the carrots and the extra change the woman had given him.

"Please retweet among your followers I was travelling along the Nakuru Nairobi highway and bought carrots from those highway vendors at Mau Summit," he tweeted.
"Unfortunately, after the lady gave me change and carrots, the bus was already moving so I left with her carrots, her carrier bag and change," he added.

Desperate to return money

Amutai is now calling on people travelling past Mau Summit at Lake Oil Petrol station to ask the roadside vendors working there so he can pay back the money.

Describing the vendor, Amutai said:

"She is average body size, not too plump nor slender, she's short, I'd say maybe 5'3. She has a deep voice and a Kikuyu accent."
