Tahidi High actor falls into alcoholism, poverty

17 March 2015, 13:46 Eugene Odanga

Nairobi -  Kenyans were thrown into a state of shock after learning that once legendary actor, Mzee Ojwang, was living in abject poverty and had fallen ill.

Thousands rushed to his aid, raising funds to help with his hospital bills and more. As it turns out, he is not the only famous actor who has fallen into this state. Peter Kinuthia, better known as Omosh in a popular high school drama Tahidi high, has according to sources also fallen into the clutches of poverty and alcoholism.

He was recently in the spotlight after he was involved a traffic collision which he survived with minor injuries. The actor is rumored to have been drunk during the incident and was driving a friend’s car, which he had borrowed.

His fall from grace has been attributed to his addiction to alcohol, which has him living in Shauri Moyo, and allegedly drinking illicit brews. Pleas have been sent out by friends for people to come to the actor’s aid in the same way that people rallied behind Mzee Ojwang.

Questions are now being raised as to what the problem seems to be, with cases like this cropping up every day. Some have asked questions of the people in authority, and whether or not actors are paid well, while others are asking questions of these stars lifestyles.
