“This is not the last image I would have wanted to post of my brother… But this is definitely the image I want every young person in this Country to see!!! Joseph Onyango Omondi passed on this morning around 3am, barely 12 hours after I found him in Downton River Road. He was addicted to Cocaine and other substances and was in and out of Rehab for the past 19 years. May God himself take charge. Thanks to everyone who came out yesterday to help @chipukeezy @teamd2dThaaanks🙏🙏🙏

She opened up further saying, at that time she got into big brother only because she needed a form of rehab and she begged to be part of it. This was the only way she would leave her boyfriend and Kenya.

She said

“The reason why they picked me is because I really begged them that I really need to go for a rehab or something. Big Brother was like my rehab. I came back na sikutaka kuwa kichekesho ya town. Sikutaka watu waseme ulijua Huddah? Muone sai amechizi ama amekuwa on drugs. So I decided to just let it go.”

Poleni sana: Eric Omondi’s brother dies moments after being rescued from drugs

She says

“The person you see here today has had many lives before who I am today. My passion was actually sports. I was a very big athlete back in the day, and I actually qualified for the ’96 Olympics.

“I used to love, soccer, football and basketball. At the same time, I also wanted to be a game changer and help people, because if you are in a position where you can help, just help because it doesn’t cost you anything.”

Nana’s love for alcohol started when she joined a university back in America,she says

“My first year at the university in America was very rocky, and that is where my everything fell apart. I was an addict of alcohol but I was able to go to rehab and from there, it’s been 19 years without drinking.”

“It definitely builds character because it takes a lot of strength to acknowledge that you have a problem, whatever it is. Getting out of it is something I am happy about because most people do not manage.”

Nana was among the lucky few who have been able to fight addiction,just yesterday local comedian Eric Omondi lost his brother Joseph Omondi who has been battling drug addiction since his high school days.

The laid back damsel has made something meaningful out of her life given the fact that she is currently supporting local artistes by giving them a chance to showcase their talent.
