An aircraft had developed some mechanical troubles over a long period an the owners had been unable to find a suitable mechanical engineer to sort out the problem. They had approached several engineers and tried out sophisticated equipment with little success.
Just before the case was officially declared desperate, they brought in a different engineer who going around the aircraft, stopped at one point where he simply knocked one spot twice using a tiny hammer.
On starting the plane, the engine came to life. The new engineer issued a Ksh 1,000,000 invoice . when requested to breakdown the figure, he wrote, Ksh 1 for using the hammer, and Ksh 999,999 for knowing where to hit!
