A Kenyan man could not hide his joy after a prominent US judge responded to his comment and even called him.
Through social media, Chelten Tuguno expressed his admiration for judge Frank Caprio, adding that he would wish to meet him one day. He went on offer the judge a gift of three goats as a gesture of appreciation.
Without disclosing why he holds the judge in high regard, Tuguno wrote, “You, Frank Caprio, are a judge sent by God. I love you. I wish I could meet you before you get old. I have 3 goats that I have to give to you as an appreciation from me in Kenya.”
Justice Caprio read Tuguno’s comment and called him to find out whether he was ‘serious about the offer.’
“That is the man I love,” says Tuguno once he is on call with Caprio.
The judge said he was happy and honored to have the opportunity to speak to Tuguno and accepted his gift.
“I can’t tell you how impressed I am that you offered three goats to me. I have had a lot of experiences in life but I have never been offered a goat. It is of great importance because my ancestors were goat herders,” judge Cario says.
The US judge, however, asked Tuguno to give the goats to three different local families that are in need. He agreed and donated the goats to three families during a church ceremony three days later.
Caprio, 85, currently serves as the Chief Municipal Judge in Providence, Rhode Island. His judicial work is televised in the TV show Caught in Providence.
