Louis Otieno shocked Kenyans when he went on national TV and talked of his failing health and lack of financial muscle to get treatment.
Louis has gone through a lot and this left him in deep depression, including being accused of killing his girlfriend.
Then “one morning I wake up and I cannot hear the nurse. Just like that,” Louis said, “I literary live in a cave, I have no idea what is going on in the world.”
The former KTN news anchor needs electronic devices inserted into his inner ears, the cochlear, in order to be able to detect sounds.
He continued,”I’m from a life where i had two phones that would ring 24/7, i had people on speed dial, who were supposed friends, I had people who are now leaders, i had people who are governors, opinion leaders, parliament…i had them and no one was interested.”
He continued, “The word friends changed, it was not what it is. Because I looked for them and I can’t find them.”
But Millie Odhimabo has stepped up to the plate and said she will do all she can to help the former King of TV News.
“Our attention has been brought to the plight of Louis Otieno who was a top media personality in Kenya, and we want to say as concerned Members of Parliament that we are going to support him in whichever little way we can.” Milly Odhiambo said.
