I don’t talk to my dad – Louis Otieno’s son

Published

on

BY OLIVIA MUNGWANA

Louis Otieno’s son, Silas Miami, has opened up about his relationship with his dad.

Miami, a filmmaker, photographer, musician and lecturer based in South Africa revealed to The Nairobian that he doesn’t talk to his father, though their relationship is ‘cordial’.

In the interview, Silas said he only spoke to the dad around the time when he was sick and needed financial help.

“My mother was technically a single mother. I had no relationship with my father. He was the man we watched on TV.  However, we met later on in life when he fell sick and I was helping with the bill. We have a cordial relationship. “

“Although we do not talk, I wish him well and he does the same for me. I got to the point where I realised that parents too are only human and a product of what they have seen in life. I have come to recognise my father’s failures, but also acknowledge his humanity.

“I mean, our parents made the best decisions with what they had. I had to make the decision to let go and to ask myself, how can I do better? Of course it was not easy, but in letting go, I set myself free not just to be a better son, but a better human being,” said.

Asked if he has forgiven him, he quickly pointed out: “I don’t think I’ve dealt with it completely. That’s going to be a lifelong journey of forgiveness. People imagine that it happens in one go and I don’t think that’s true. You do not wake up one morning and it isn’t as heavy as it was before, but it doesn’t magically erase trauma. So, we are not there yet, but we are heading there.”

At the time Louis Otieno was coming out to ask for financial help, he was living with his mum and there was no mention of his kids.

Louis Otieno was one of the most decorated of media personalities in Kenya whose ignominious fall came after the death of his girlfriend Careen Chepchumba in 2012. He later became sick and has been seeking treatment.

AUDIO: Jeff Koinange to meet his social media bully on Monday

Published

on

Prominent Citizen TV anchor and Hot 96 Radio presenter Jeff Koinange is set to meet an unidentified person said to have been harassing him on Twitter.

The Twitter personality, going only under the moniker ‘Mimi Yule,’ is said to have been threatening Mr. Koinange, posting messages to the renowned media personality on the social networking site under the hashtag #JeffUtaniona(which loosely translates to, ‘Jeff, you will know who I am!’)

It is not yet clear what the guy wants as he has not come out to state his demands, if any, but most of his tweets to Mr. Koinange have been posted in explosive Swahili. Here are a few samples:

“Wewe Jeff wewe! Unakuanga na maringo sana. Kwanza hiyo kizungu yako unafikiria wewe ndio umesoma kutuliko? Na hizo nywele zako mkarango! Utajua hujui wewe. Utaniona!”

“Jeff wewe! Utanitambua. Kama mbaya mbaya. Katatamba kutamba wacha vile unatutishanga hapa ati sijui smooooooking! Utaniona!”

“Unadhani sikujui! Unaturingia hapo na hiyo Benz yako, nitakuja hapo na Probox lakini roho ni Lambourghini. Hata Kinyambi hatanyambua hii.Utaniona!”

Speaking to EDAILY, the distraught Hot 96 breakfast show presenter was at a loss for words. In true Jeff Koinange fashion, all he could muster the strength to say was, “Oh my! This is crazy… This is absolutely crazy …What does this guy want… this is absurd!”
