Her post attracted thousands of comments, most congratulating her for the work well done.
“Congratulations!!! All that hard work means success is a matter of when,” Marcus said.
G Kogalo wrote, “Thumbs up for hustling hard. Some of us who were never educated by parents or relatives must strive to achieve their GOALS even if it means doing odd jobs. By the way are you single with no baby? Am asking for a friend.”
“Congratulations! You made it! It’s time to celebrate all the hard work that led to this joyful occasion. The road to graduation is a long, steep climb, so take a moment at the summit to be proud of your accomplishments,” Ibrahim Mutahi said.
However not all comments were positive as others took the advantage to troll her.
Chris Orucho said, “We don’t trust you bwana! Just this year they were saying you were in third year, how come you are graduating today?”
“I wonder, when selling chipo the dress is short but when graduating you are decent. Is the short dress part of business strategy to attract clients?” Muraya Chege posed.
“Always looking for cheap publicity;many have done what you are doing right now and have never announced it to the public!” Amaheno Francis’ comment read.
Kwamboka came into the limelight after she shared her photo to promote her business while in a short green dress.
She was later involved in an online altercation with nominated senator Millicent Omanga who claimed that she had sorted her out with some money and equipment to boost her business. Kwamboka however denied the senator’s allegations.
