A few weeks ago Ringtone who was hosted on Upclose with Betty revealed he was looking for a wife in the most unique way.
“Now that Kenyan ladies are ignoring me we are going to go out to the road. There’s something I have been doing secretly. I’m surprised no one has noticed yet,” he said
In the segment, Ringtone drove to Runda and parked his car on the side, stood in the middle of the road and raised the placard for 30 minutes with his future wife’s qualities.
“If in those 30 minutes a lady sees me and inboxes me we talk, I’m ready,” Ringtone explains.
Why are you speaking Chinglish?

While one of the most vicious bloggers in Kenya, Robert Alai was very blunt.
They think you were looking for students to drug and rape like you have been accused
