Multitalented BBC journalist Ferdinand Omondi is such a great brother to his siblings.
Omondi and his siblings lost their parents when they were still young and he had to take up the role of a father and mother.
The former KTN reporter while celebrating his younger brother’s graduation, shared an emotional post, narrating what they’ve gone through, leaving many in tears.
I’m a proud father/brother. He lost his father at 5. Mum at age 11. Today, our last born, Jok Owino, graduates with a BSc in Meteorology. We thank God. Now give him a job, Kenya,’ Omondi wrote in part accompanied by the pic below.
I am literally in tears. When we lost our parents, the future looked so bleak. I had no idea how I was going to school my siblings. I sacrificed a lot. That my younger siblings got degrees before me is a treasure I will take to my grave. I know I made mum and dad proud. Life has thrown me roses, and with a fair share of thorns. Only God and a few people know how I masked the pain with laughter. Thanks to everyone who was supportive of my personal journey and professional career. I will never be able to show how grateful I am. It’s your day, Jerome. Now go out there and shine like a Diamond.
