They say looks may be deceiving, well Peter Oloo Aringo may look like that ordinary man with limited means. When The Standard team got to his home, he’ was going about his activities.

Aringo is the first born son of former Alego Member of Parliament and minister for education Peter Oloo Aringo and a Jamaican mother. He attended the prestigious Consolata Primary School in Nairobi and St. Mary’s Yala where, on his own admission, he had begun drinking.

He  later proceeded to the United States where he pursued a business administration course at Lona College.

While in the US, Aringo opines life was good, on the first lane. His drinking habits right back from high school in Kenya however grew not only as a consumer but now as a peddler which endeared him to his peers but little did he know he was on the radar of the New York Federal government authorities.“I became a dealer.

I decided if I want to make more and use more, I needed to get into the business. And that’s where my downward spiral began,” Aringo narrated to this reporter. Being an alien and on the left side of the law, he was a marked man.

Former Cabinet Minister Peter Oloo Aringo.

Authorities finally pounced on him. He was arraigned and sentenced to 30 years in jail but he was too lucky to be given an option of deportation which he opted for. As it is the norm, a deportee, he came back home empty-handed without even his travel documents, his wife and three children. “I had no money. I had nothing,” he added.

Back home his appetite for alcohol and drugs only increased but he could only access and afforded cheap liquor which eventually caused him throat cancer. His wife Catherine Boyane, also a reformed drug addict with whom they got married in May this year narrated how it all began.“The day we started noticing a swelling on his neck, we thought it was a sore throat. We never thought it would be cancer,” she said.

Throughout the interview, Aringo kept sipping tea or water as there is totally no saliva in his mouth.The man who grew up in opulence has only a wall clock with his father’s name permanently inscribed on it triggering nostalgic memories.The couple is now quietly living at the heart of a posh estate in Nakuru but in a shanty sandwiched between high-end houses.

The Kenyan actor says;

“I have a very stylish mother. Growing up, I was always so impressed by how she always put herself together.”

She further adds; 

“One of my aunts was a cloth designer, so I would draw up the same way. I remember designing my own prom dress. It’s the African influence because we love, love color that’s why my clothes were always out there.”

 

 

 32-year-old Winston Duke says;

“For me, fashion is very expressive because in the Caribbean color is in our blood. Growing up, expensive shoes and fashion was kinda out of reach, I would draw sneakers and dream that I would touch it someday.”
