“As I met Kenyans living in Botswana last night, I was elated to see Ichangai Muiruri, my former college mate at the University of Nairobi. A land economist who has lived here for 25 years now, he runs the biggest Land Valuation firm in Botswana.

I invited him to join me in my early morning run for us to catch up. As we walked through the streets of Gaborone, we traced our treasured memories in the Eighties, as he took me through the opportunities in real estate and farming in Botswana that Kenyans can invest in.

I took this time to thank him for having given me a business opportunity in 1989, when he hired my mobile Disco for his pre- wedding and subsequent wedding evening party and paid me Ksh1,500 each for both occasions .

With the Ksh 3,000 from Ichangai, I added another Ksh 2000 to place a Ksh 5000 deposit. It was a 10% deposit for a quarter of an acre plot at Kahawa Sukari in Nairobi that was then selling at Ksh 50,000.

Today, I receive daily offers to sell the same plot for Ksh 15 million. Tumetoka mbali! Tena mbali saana, ” Rigathi Gachagua said.
