Tahidi High’s Judy Wachuka, alias Mrs Ngatia has appealed to Kenyans to build her a house.
Mrs Ngatia is the first wife of actor Omosh Kizangila,
Speaking in a recent YouTube interview where the couple appeared together, Mrs Ngatia said they are living in a bedsitter with her three children in Kayole and has not paid rent for two months.
She added that Omosh’s second wife is living in the house well-wishers built for him.
“Even if I get a one-bedroom, metal house, I would move into it very fast. I don’t want to disturb people because I know times are hard. I would appreciate it even if I get a temporary structure for now,” she said.
She said that she owes her landlord Sh10,000 in rent arrears.
“My landlords used to see us on TV and would not believe that we could not pay rent. One time, I used to stay in Umoja but was thrown out by the landlord saying my husband has a big name,” she said.
Mrs Ngatia added that the situation was so embarrassing that she would wear a buibui in public to avoid getting noticed.
Omosh acknowledged that indeed his first wife needed a house to move into and avoid paying rent.
“Luck fell on my second wife but my dream is to also build my first wife a house. If we can get money, there is land where a house can be built for her. Before I die, she will have a house,” Omosh vowed.
Mrs Ngatia added that one of the wishes of Omosh’s late father was for the actor to build his first wife a house on a piece of land in Karura which he allocated them.
