Actor Joseph Kinuthia Kamau aka Omosh: “Tahidi ilipofungwa, friends na neighbours ndio wameniweka. I have nothing to do. Umewahi kukaa pekee yako kwa barabara unatembea unalia. That’s what I do. Natokanga kwa nyumba nang’ara na hakuna mahali ninaenda. One year, sijalipa house rent. Sina anything. Sometimes, natoka nje, na pray na nalia tu. Naambia Mungu, kwani Mungu uliniwacha? Kwani Mungu ulinisahau? God has been grateful. Sijawahi kukosa lunch, breakfast ama supper .”
