Leonard O. is 32 years old and married to an accountant. He owns an electronic sales shop and also does computer repairs in Kakamega town. Kakamega is a rich agricultural area found in the western region of Kenya. The area is known for large-scale production of sugarcane and thus commonly referred to as the "sugar belt region".
