An agitated Eric Omondi has taken it to social media to announce the untimely death of his Elder Brother and the first born in their family Joseph Omondi (RIP) who breathed last in the wee hours of today’s morning over drugs.
News about Eric’s Brother first came on board yesterday when he posted a video on his Instagram handle showing the world how he had finally found his lost Brother who for a long time had been a drug addict spending most of his time on the Kenya streets.
The celebrated Kenyan Comedian went on to reveal his Brother Joseph started abusing drugs when he wa still in High school.
“Joseph has struggled with drug addiction since high school… He has been in and out of rehabilitation. We have tried our best as a family. Because of his addiction he has a tendency to run away from us to avoid Rehabilitation. I tracked him yesterday through a taxi guy who spotted him in Nairobi downtown along Nyandarua Road”
Well According to Eric Omondi, His blood brother breathed last on Tuesday, June 19, at around 3am after 19 years of struggling with Drug abuse.
Eric was excited he had found him and that NACADA through newly appointed board member Chipukeezy had even promised to help Joseph out of his torrid life. However, as fate would have it, the comedian and his family lost Joseph just when he was back into their lives.
On behalf of MBU i would like to send our heartfelt Condolences to the Omondi’s Family and May Joseph’s Soul Rest In Perfect Peace.
