Pastor David Kiongo – popularly known as Kiongo wa panti – was born in Gatundu South, Kiambu County and previously worked at construction sites.

“I used to work at a construction site but one day, the owner refused to pay us and we boycotted work. We threatened to take his mabati and other tools and that’s when he gave in. He came with lots of money to pay us but some of my workmates refused to queue and fought over the money. In the process I scooped Sh. 10,000 and ran into the coffee plantation,” Kiongo said in a story that was published by The Nairobian. Here is the story:

“After paying my rent, I was left with Sh. 2,000 which I used to start the panties business.”

Today, he is one of the most popular panties dealers in Nairobi and Kiambu County.

“Women nicknamed me Kiongo wa panti and the name went viral. In fact, I am among the first people to sell women’s panties in open air markets in this city. I will be celebrating my tenth year doing this business very soon,” he told CityBiz , adding that before he opens shops, he preaches the word of God to his customers.

Kiongo explains that being a panties man has enabled him to feed his family and employ four people.

The father-of-two explains that despite his unique hustle, he does not shy away from serving as a pastor at Victory Church in Weteithie, Thika.

“Being a pastor does not stop me from selling women’s panties. I receive orders through WhatsApp, where women send their photos so that I can determine the size of their panties. Most orders are from those who work in offices and we deliver them at a cost. I charge Sh. 100 for delivery,” said the 29-year-old.

“I have mentored many young guys to join this business. Don’t joke with this panties business, it has built my parents a decent home,” says the alumnus of Balkan High School.

As a motivation, Kiongo gives his loyal clients three-month credit period, especially those taking their kids to school.
In terms of cost, lace panties go for Sh. 500, seamless ones for Sh. 600 and Sh. 400 for G-strings. Hotpants retail for Sh. 300.

White and black colours sell like hot cakes and sometimes men stop by to buy panties for their women. Many customers say that hotpants are very comfortable.
Kiongo says that he goes to Kampala every three months to stock up.

“I get these goods in Kampala because they are cheaper there. All I can say is that the business is profitable because in a good month, I can take home Sh200,000 from my outlets which are situated in different towns.”
