A section of online users has rallied up to demand the immediate admission of former Tahidi high actor Omosh into a rehabilitation centre after a video of him seemingly drunk emerged.
Worried netizens, including Omosh's former counterpart Eddy WHO suggested that he be forcefully admitted to a rehabilitation facility to try 'save his life.
"I really tried reaching out to this guy the moment he started getting money that is after Shish called to inform me that NACADA was willing to take him to rehab probono. He wasn't picking my calls and being that he had a personal assistant I called the wife and explained myself by telling them they should not use the cash they got unless he agrees to go to rehab and would be back after 3 months when he is in his right senses.
"Now its funny that I called him yesterday and he tells me wife never passed my message of him going to rehab and also the PA by then didn't tell him I called. Maji imezidi Unga he has nothing even Sh5 bob for a cigarette. It's either he is taken to rehab by force or something worse might follow," wrote Eddy.
According to Baby__ras, rehabilitation is likely to work only if the individual is willing to change.
"Rehab would only work if it's his personal decision to begin recovery, otherwise, if he's pressured and forced to rehab it will not work at all! He should be affiliated with AA groups maybe those would help, I don't know.
When news of the former actor's addiction first surfaced in February, many were quick to shift the blame to his family, with accusations of neglect, despite their knowledge of his addiction.
Responding to the claims, Naomi Kamau, Omosh's sister stated that they have done their best as a family to try and make him change with no success.
"Before you start crucifying us online as a family for neglecting our brother, reach out and get our side of the story, no sane human being can neglect his or her blood relation. Omosh is our brother and we love and care, we've done everything humanly possible to stand with our brother and we'll still do over the years, come sit us down we reason together, I'll stop it at that coz these are issues we don't want to share with the media, we're a family and we'll try to sort our shit," she said.
You are misinformed
According to Omosh, the financial assistance Kenyans are claiming to have given him never went as far as Sh1 million.
Speaking in a short Instagram video posted by Mr Spoiler, Omosh vowed he never received more than Sh1 million, adding Kenyans are being misinformed about his situation.
"I have never tasted a million in my whole life and you guys think that I got a million, please you guys, you are misinformed. I have never ever ever. Would I be here if I had millions? That's a lie. The truth is I never got a million. But one thing is certain. Someone stood by me," he said.
