The man who works at Nyatike gold mines claims despite not paying dowry to Lady Maureen’s family, they both promised to bury each other depending on who died first. “Achieng was my wife even though I had not taken dowry to the family, she requested me to bury her if she died first and promised to bury me if I passed on before her,” he said.

He accused the family of rejecting his request to bury his ex-lover despite efforts to do so. “I have approached them and requested to be allowed to bury her but the family have declined,” he said. Jack, who was among mourners and fans who turned up in large numbers to view the body of Ohangla Queen at Ojele Memorial Hospital Mortuary said they met at Princess Jully band where both of them were band members. “We married immediately when Maureen joined music and by then I was also a musician with the band,” he said.

Charles Ochieng brother and the family spokesperson to the late Lady Maureen refuted the claims, saying many people have requested for the same over the phone, but nobody has actualised their request. “Those are lies being peddled out there, many people are calling us with a similar request, but they have not come here to discuss the same, so we will not listen to rumours,” said Ochieng.

‘I told him if you want to commit suicide with drinking, take a rope…’ Othuol Othuol’s father speaks

Published

on

The father of late comedian Othuol Othuol has moved Kenyans after speaking for the first time following his death.

Othuol’s story was featured on Churchill Show journey series, where his family, close friends and colleagues paid glowing tributes to him.

‘The last time he came home it was January this year. He called me and told me he wanted to come and built his house because everyone was asking him about it,’ his father said.

Adding,

‘He came home and put up a house which is bigger than mine and promised to build me one once he was done’.

Othuol Othuol was known for his love for alcohol and his father and close friend actress Sandra Dacha confirmed this.

‘We had a lot of problems with his drinking style. An I’d urge young people to tread carefully. People have drunk until they are even 100 or 90 years and are still strong because were cautious but not careless. If you do is carelessly then you become careless with your life,’ he,’ explained.

The bereaved father continued,

‘His drinking was a concern to the family. Whenever he would come home, the whole home would be full…chang’aa (local brew) and other drinks. He arrives in the village in the morning but I’d see him in the night when he is going to sleep. Just from one chang’aa den to another and I could go round making noise nyinyi mnaharibu watoto wa watu but he was a grown-up so hakuna mtu anamuharibu.’

The sad father was fed up with his son’s drinking and tried to warn him but his warnings fell on deaf ears.

‘I called him one day and told him if you want to commit suicide with drinking please tell me and the style you want to take. If you want to commit suicide with drinking carelessly, don’t take time, better take a rope and do it. I’ll come to carry you home,” he recalled.

Adding,

‘I thought he could go slow… during the time he was diagnosed with TB, I sent a brother to go and take care of him but he said “no this is my hoúse. If you talk about my drinking and the money is mine, then hatutaelewana”.’

The comedian was raised by his father and stepmother.
