Susan Mugasi who owns the kiosk where the DP and other VIPs took tea served them the tea and the bill amounted to Ksh250 but the DP paid her Ksh100,000.
“Yesterday a lucky Susan Mugasia served tea worth Sh250 to William Ruto and these VIPs at her kiosk at Shianda market in Kakamega. The Deputy President gave her Sh100,000 and told her to keep change,” Khalwale tweeted.
Through his Twitter account the DP had posted photos of himself and the other leader taking tea and chapati at the kiosk.
