Former Tahidi High actor Omosh’s first Wife Mrs. Ngatia has appealed for help from well-wishers to build her a house.
Speaking during a joint interview with Hiram Maina on Thursday, August 19, 2021, Mrs. Ngatia whose real name is Judy Wachuka pleaded to Kenyans to build her her own house claiming that she lives in a bedsitter with their three children.
According to Ngatia who also featured on the famous TV series revealed that she had gone through a lot since 2020 when the Covid-19 pandemic struck the world.
“Life has been challenging for us since the Covid-19 pandemic struck. But, when I was at Tahidi High, at least I could fend for my children.
I have suffered with my children. They have been chased away from school over fees numerous times,” Ngatia said.
Ngatia also claimed that she had been thrown out of four different houses within the past two years adding that her landlords could not believe that she lacks rent.
“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,” Ngatia lamented.
Ngatia also said that she was forced to avoid using some routes since she has a lot of debts from many people.
“Sometimes I feel like wearing a buibui so people cannot recognise me,” she said.
Ngatia further revealed that she currently owes her landlord two months’ rent arrears amounting to Ksh. 10,000.
When asked about the current house which well-wishers recently built for him, Omosh responded by saying that his second wife is occupying it, adding that they have a piece of land where the well-wishers can build another house for his second wife.
“There is land where a house can be built for her. Before I die, she will have a house,” Omosh stated.
Ngatia pleaded with well-wishers to build her a one-bedroom house so she can stop paying rent.
“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,” Ngatia said.
Omosh appealed for help for the second time from Kenyans in June, 2021 in which well-wishers raised less than a million.
“People pledged money that I have never received. I got less than a million which I used to settle my debts,” Omosh stated.
Omosh got a backlash from a section of Kenyans who had helped him build his house, including comedian Jalang’o and politician Alinur Mohammed in June, 2021 after he appealed for help for the second time.
