“What was the creamy stuff you added to the chicken? And how did you get started? With the feeding station idea? I want to begin. I am just scared to do it alone. Blessings from Uganda,” she said.
Another curious fan asked about how Ombachi intends to sell the food to provide for underprivileged “This is amazing. Have you ever thought of selling that which you made maybe to construction workers, matatu drivers, nurses on the go or the like and then the money made to help feed the needy? It could be a great investment. Either way, impressive,” she tweeted.
