A homeless Kenyan man, who was filmed by his compatriot begging in the streets of the United Kingdom, has appealed for assistance.

The man who identified himself as Dan Mutungi from Machakos said he had been in the UK since 1992.

Bancy Wairimu Mbui, who was filming him, asked what help he needed and he said food and shelter.

Mutungi narrated that he already lost his passport as Wairimu insisted that the best thing was for him to go back to Kenya.

Wairimu had in her caption written that Mutungi begs on the streets of Luton.

This guy is a Kenyan based in UK, Luton to be specific, I cry to Uhuru and his government to help him to go back home as he’s leaving on the street begging, it’s really sad

FINED

An article published on the Luton Today on December 16, 2016 stated that Mutungi was fined £165 (Sh21,381) for begging.

“Daniel Mutungi of Noah’s Enterprise in Park Street, was caught begging for alms in a passageway in George Street, Luton on July 12. He was charged partly under the 1824 Vagrancy Act. He must pay £50 plus £85 court costs and £30 victim services charge after being found guilty in his absence at Luton Magistrates on December 6,” the article read in part.

Mutungi, during his brief conversation with Wairimu, said his mother passed on but his father lives in Machakos.

He begged Wairimu for £10 (Sh1,295) but she insisted she did not have the money and could not offer him shelter directing him to government officials instead.

VIDEO: US-based Kenyan man reunites with daughter he never knew he had after 43 years

A 67 year old US based Kenyan man who fathered a girl some 43 years ago has been reunited with his daughter.

It was an emotional reunion between father and daughter in Nairobi. Judy Wangui, having never met her dad is now married with two children.

According to K24, Peter Muriu met Mary Wangui, his Class eight sweetheart while he was in Form Three. As fate would have it, the man relocated to the United States. Little did he know that he had left an offspring.

Fast forward, 43 years later, the man traveled to Kenya after getting wind that a woman who looked exactly like him had been spotted.

“As I was roaming here and there, someone told me someone who was your girl back in the day got a baby who looks like you,” he said during an interview conducted on the fridges of the reunion party in Runda, Nairobi.

Innitially, Muriu toyed with the idea of conducting a DNA test.

“But I said before making a decision, I am going to see the girl. After seeing her, I said, Oh Lord, no need for a DNA here.”

The daughter was equally elated.

“Nimefurahi kumuona babangu maanake tangu nizaliwe sijawahi kuitana baba,” said Wangui.

Her mother, Mary Wambui, whose marriage unfortunately did not work out said all her children are very happy and have accepted him as their father.
