Even Machakos Governor Alfred Mutua is impressed and revealed that he buys his furniture along Ngong road.

This looks like Dagoretti corner – Ngong road furniture place. That is where I like getting furniture made so that money circulates among my people. If you insist on quality & diligence, they give you what you can buy in imported furniture shops. I grew up nearby at Riruta.

The mans invention will surely see him rake in millions if the orders keep increasing. We salute hard work.

‘We didn’t spend our childhood together’ Fred Omondi opens up about late brother


Eric and Fred Omondi’s brother died within hours of being discovered alive heavily addicted.

Fred, in an interview on Tuesday September 10th, revealed that

the last time Eric saw him was two years before he died, and was called to a lodging where our brother had OD’d, and sadly died in the room in that lodging, 


His family was tipped off about his location in downtown, and Eric asked the person to ensure his brother didn’t leave and was as comfortable as could be

the same night is when he died when Eric was going to pick him up to take him to hospital

after confirming and leaving to make hospital arrangements, he found him dead

Fred said the family had tried to help him out of his addiction, sadly he kept running away

It’s been 1 year since his death, we went through a lot, this is somebody we didn’t spend time growing up with, he would disappear coz of mihadarati, so from high school he would disappear, and my dad being a policeman would look for him and find him, and he would disappear again, and we would miss him. It affected Eric and my sister alot.

The brother died in 2018, and a year later Fred reminisced his death

it’s a good lesson. I am a witness that if you have the chance to stop this kind of life, stop it….
