Two Kenyan children named Teresiah Nyakinyua and James Mwangi, who were seen fighting over how many pencils and rubber they should buy, have been blessed in one of the most heart-melting ways.
The kids who are siblings became an internet sensation after their viral video surfaced on social media. Shortly after the video circulated, radio presenter, Muthee Kiengei shared photos revealing the deplorable conditions the family of seven children and their parents were living in, prompting many well-meaning Kenyans to come to their aid.
Nyakinyua and Mwangi’s innocent act brought blessing to their family as well-meaning people contributed to provide a brand new recently constructed house for the once-poor family that lived in a shanty made of mud.

One of the philanthropist’s Ndungu Nyoro shared the photos of the breathtaking three-bedroom house built for the family by Dhahabu Land Limited with the help of Ruiru Mabati Factory.
A little over two weeks ago, Kikuyu Town MP Kimani Ichung’wa gifted the family a dairy cow worth KSh 100,000 (N356,983.70). Deputy President William Ruto also gave the family a-500 chicken farm on Sunday, August 13.
“To ensure that they have a stable foundation to make their dreams come true, I have assigned my farm manager to personally ensure their parents establish a fully-funded 500-chicken farm,” Ruto said.
In the video which went viral, the two kids could be heard arguing back and forth in the shop and the shop keeper decided to record them as their exchange became intense went. Nyakinyua was fighting her brother who wanted two pencils so each could get one. However, the young girl wanted a pencil and rubber.
After the video went viral a number of Kenyans requested for their search and after a day the duo was located at Nyandarua county.
